The Giants came. They saw. And the Eagles conquered.
It is time to now gaze ahead to the Cowboys, who arrive in Philadelphia Sunday night with first place in the NFC East on the line. Eagles coach Andy Reid was asked about the 5-2 Cowboys today, who have won three straight.
“I think they’re playing aggressive," Reid said at his day-after news conference. "I think their offensive line and defensive line are playing very physical football. They’re giving [Cowboys QB] Tony [Romo] time to get back there and throw and then they match it with a good running game. Defensively, they’re flying around. [Cowboys head coach] Wade [Phillips] has taken over. They’re blitzing from all over the place. They have a whole variety of different blitzes. They’re utilizing everybody there.”
The 5-2 Eagles are fairly healthy heading into the Dallas game. Reid said that Brian Westbrook (concussion), who missed Sunday's game, should be back practicing by Wednesday. That doesn't mean the running back will be ready to go against the Cowboys, however.
