The Philadelphia Eagles will travel to Dallas to take on the Cowboys on Sunday Night Football this week.

Everything is on the line in this game - the winner will finish atop the NFC East and move on to the playoffs, while the loser will go home.

The Cowboys will be heading into this game short-handed, as their starting QB, Tony Romo, has been shelved for the rest of the season with a back injury. In his place, Kyle Orton, who will be charged with the responsibility of leading the Cowboys to the playoffs.

The Philadelphia Eagles are heavy favourites heading into tonight’s game:

Philadephia Eagles, -7, +100
Dallas Cowboys, +7, -120

The money line (straight up odds):

Philadelphia Eagles, -280
Dallas Cowboys, +240

Finally, the over/under odds:

Over 52.5 points, -110
Under 52.5 points, -110

Nick Foles and the Eagles have looked very impressive in the second half of the season. The Eagles offense will be led by Foles, DeSean Jackson and LeSean McCoy, and the Cowboys will certainly have their hands full trying to stop Chip Kelly's offensive attack.

The Cowboys, on the other hand, will likely rely heavily on the legs of DeMarco Murray, who has been one of the NFL's best players over the past month.
