Next installment of Eagles-Cowboys rivalry

The storyline
The Eagles are trying to lock down the No. 2 seed in the NFC. Jason Garrett is trying to lock down the Cowboys' head coaching job beyond an interim role.

Why you should watch
This is Michael Vick's last chance to bolster his MVP credentials, which would rival only Kurt Warner as the most improbable ever. The Cowboys are likely going with Stephen McGee at quarterback. I'm not sure how that's going to work out for them in Philly, though, he fought hard against the lowly Cards.
