Tonight, the Cowboys and Eagles will renew their rivalry at Lincoln Financial Field.  For the Eagles, who entered the bye at 2-4, it’s a huge game if they hope to get to the playoffs.

It’s also a huge game for the Cowboys, if they hope to get to the playoffs and make some noise there.

Owner Jerry Jones told ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio that the Eagles game in Philly has been circled on the calendar since training camp.  Jones said he sees it as a significant opportunity to make a statement about who the Cowboys are as a football team.  Jones also believes the game could possibly be a spring board toward a special season.

Still, both teams are behind where they thought they’d be, and both teams need to win tonight.
