Philadelphia Eagles vs. Dallas Cowboys odds opened at Cowboys -3 and that line has stayed steady all week just about everywhere except SBG Global, which offered a great incentive for Cowboys fans.  They featured a line of -2 ½ in this game.   Close to 85 percent of the betting action was going the Eagles way however.

"I look at the Philadelphia contest as a playoff game," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. "It's so meaningful to us."

The Cowboys (10-5) are trying to win their second division title in three years and Philadelphia (11-4) seeks its first since 2006.

If the Eagles win, they clinch the No. 2 seed in the NFC and get a week to rest before beginning the playoffs. The Cowboys' shot at the bye will be gone if Minnesota wins earlier in the day, but if the Vikings lose to the New York Giants, Dallas can get it by beating Philadelphia while Arizona loses to Green Bay.

If neither team gets the second seed, the Eagles and Cowboys very possibly would meet in the wild-card round next weekend.

"Playing for the division title is what's going to make this a great game," Eagles coach Andy Reid said. "Both teams have something at stake. That's why we do this thing, as coaches and players, for opportunities like this. Everybody will be fired up for it."
