A team doesn't have play well to pull a primo spot on "Sunday Night Football." Just be entertaining.
The Philadelphia Eagles-Dallas Cowboys game will remain in the NBC slot on Dec. 2 despite Philadelphia's weekly self-destruction. The Eagles have lost six consecutive games and scored the second-fewest points in the NFL.
"America's team" is good for ratings and always have some kind of drama-filled subplot. NBC has banked on that making up for the bland 5-5 record. The Eagles are their division rival and sure to be in the midst of some implosion.
