Dallas Cowboys Crush the Philadelphia Eagles 24-0 to Win the NFC East; Face Rematch with Eagles in Playoffs - Video 1/3/10
Here are video highlights of the Dallas Cowboys 24-0 impressive win over the Philadelphia Eagles yesterday to win the NFC East Championship, and roll into the NFC Playoffs as the number three seed.
The win means Dallas will host a playoff game next Saturday night against - the Philadelphia Eagles. Had they won, the Eagles could have clinched the number two seed in the playoffs, won the NFC East, and secured a bye next week. But it was not to be as Dallas dominated the game from start to finish in every phase.
The victory by the Cowboys was a shock to many, who have said repeatedly the Cowboys would "choke" in the big game. But Dallas has now won three straight "must have" games, beating the previously unbeaten New Orleans Saints - in New Orleans - three weeks ago, and shutting out the Redskins and the Eagles the last two weeks, 17-0 and 24-0. The back-to-back shutouts are the first ever in the history of the Cowboys.
Now the question becomes, can Dallas beat the Eagles three times this season, and two straight weeks? The rematch will be the first playoff game ever played in the new Cowboys Stadium, and will begin at 7:00 PM CT next Saturday on NBC.
