Foles, Eagles set for first place duel with Dallas

First place in the NFC East will be on the line when the Eagles host the Cowboys on Sunday.

Nick Foles will start at quarterback for the Birds, while Michael Vick continues to nurse an injured hamstring.

Both teams enter the game at 3-3 and tied for first in the NFC East.

The Eagles are coming off back-to-back wins over winless teams - the Giants and Bucs.

Dallas is expected to be without top running back DeMarco Murray and top pass rusher DeMarcus Ware.

The game will start at 1pm on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
