In a game in which the winner would earn a spot in the playoffs, the Philadelphia Eagles destroyed and embarrassed the Dallas Cowboys in South Philadelphia and extended their season at least another week.
Andy Reid, in his post-game press conference, thanked the fans first for showing up at the Linc to cheer on the Birds against their most hated rival. Not shortly after, Reid thanked the Oakland Raiders and Houston Texans for doing their part to put the Eagles in position to play next weekend. How 'bout them Oakland Raiders?!?
Finally, he acknowledged his players for bringing the thunder on the final day of the regular season and making the Dallas Cowboys look more like Monaco's Team than America's Team.
It was an all-out team showing by the Eagles, who put up impressive offensive drives ending in two McNabb touchdown passes and another QB sneak in the first half. After that, the Birds' defensive looked rabid against a lifeless Cowboys offense. Tony Romo came up extremely small, giving the ball away, in another big game in the lore of Romo.
