The Eagles Have Been Unlucky This Season Posted Nov 2nd 2007 10:09AM by Ryan Wilson Filed under: Cowboys, Eagles, NFC East Hey, look at that, there are other games on the schedule outside of Indianapolis this week. Shocking. One of those games will be in Philadelphia, when the Eagles host the Cowboys. Dallas leads the NFC East, and has a three-game lead over last-place Philly. Earlier this week, quarterback Donovan McNabb said that the division title will have to go through Philly because the Eagles have won the East five of the last six years. That didn't make Cowboys safety Roy Williams very happy: "Right now, they are in no position to talk about everything going through Philly... Some teams went to Philly and beat them. No one is worried about 'You have to go through Philly.' You have to go through Dallas, you have to go through Washington and you have to go through New York, too. Everybody feels they are the best."Okay, not exactly T.O.-level smack talk, but it'll have to do. If for no other reason than to distract us momentarily from PATS-COLTS: WEEK 9's GAME OF THE CENTURY. Even though the Eagles are bringing up the rear in the division, they're the 11th-best team in the league, according to Football Outsiders. And they've been pretty unlucky this season too: their record is 3-4, but they have 4.8 estimated wins. Assuming they were 5-2, Philly would still trail the Cowboys in the division, but we'd be hearing a lot less about all the ancillary issues that get moved to the front burner when a team struggles. Whatever the reason.
