The division rivals will meet at Cowboys Stadium for the second time in seven days as Dallas seeks to end its 13-year drought without a playoff victory Saturday night by defeating Philadelphia for the third time this season.

The Cowboys beat Philadelphia decisively last week in a 24-0 victory.  The odds of that happening again are highly unlikely but Philadelphia better be awake this time around.  Both teams were playing for a division win and home field advantage, so Philadelphia was in no position to be "resting players" or "sleep walking" through last week's game.

The Cowboys stand a very good chance of going deep in this year's Playoffs.

"I had my doubts that the Cowboys could beat the Eagles three times in the same season, but that was before I observed their first possession Sunday. Quite simply, Dallas has become the most complete team in the NFC -- and it couldn't have happened at a better time," writes Matt Mosley of ESPN.com.

"The Cowboys were so successful in the running game early that McDermott asked his safeties to play closer to the line of scrimmage. That opened up the middle of the field for quick slants to Miles Austin and Patrick Crayton, who combined for 189 yards and a touchdown.

"On defense, the Cowboys shut down one of the most prolific offenses in the league. It's the first time in club history the Cowboys have recorded back-to-back shutouts. The Eagles hadn't been shut out since Dec. 5, 2005, against Seattle. The immortal Mike McMahon was under center for that game.

"Cowboys linebacker Bradie James sacked Donovan McNabb on the Eagles' first possession and the quarterback never found a rhythm. Even when DeSean Jackson beat Terence Newman on a deep route, McNabb overthrew him by 5 yards."

For sports bettors, the Philadelphia Eagles vs. Dallas Cowboys Playoffs odds trends tend to favor Philadelphia just a little bit more than they do Dallas, especially when they come into this one as an underdog.

4 of the last 10 games have been won by 4 points or less.

Dallas has covered the current spread at home against Philadelphia in two of their last five games of the series.

The Eagles are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games as a road underdog of 3.5-10.0.

The Eagles are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games after scoring less than 15 points in their previous game.

Philadelphia is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games following a S.U. loss.

The Eagles are 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games following a SU loss of more than 14 points.

The Cowboys are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a S.U. win.

The Cowboys are 12-5 ATS in their last 17 vs. NFC but are also 5-11 ATS in their last 16 vs. NFC East.
