Eagles favored vs. Dallas

I'll have all my picks posted Friday, but wanted to pass along a few lines for the games that the Eagles are concerned with. As you know by now, and as I've typed in this space several times, the Eagles need three things to happen to sneak in the playoffs. The first is a win over the Cowboys, a game in which the Eagles are 1.5-point favorites. It's an interesting line, considering the game could have zero postseason implications for the Birds if the Bucs win their 1 o'clock game. Speaking of the Bucs, they are 13-point favorites at home against Oakland. However, some think this number is way too high. Just yesterday, I heard Fox analyst Brian Baldinger say he thinks the Raiders are going to win. Meanwhile, the Vikings are 6.5-point favorites against the Giants. And the Bears are 2.5-point underdogs at the Texans. The Eagles need either a Minnesota or Chicago loss.
