Philadelphia hosts Dallas on Sunday with first-place in the NFC East on the line.

PHILADELPHIA -

The Philadelphia Eagles (3-3) will host the Dallas Cowboys (3-3) on Sunday afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field. The winner will have sole possession of first-place in the NFC East.

The Birds have won two-straight games, albeit against teams without a win so far this season.

Philadelphia has leaned on quarterback Nick Foles in both of the victories. Foles came in during the Giants game for an injured Michael Vick and engineered the win. He started last week and led the Eagles past Tampa Bay.

Foles is expected to start again on Sunday with Vick not feeling game-ready.

Kick-off is set for 1:00 on Sunday.
