Some thoughts on the second half, after the jump.

Halftime - Something about igloos and ice bergs melting.

2nd Half - The second half gets off to a great start for the Eagles with the Cowboys returning the ball to about midfield.  I don't know if I'm going to be able to do this for another half.

Terrell Owens walks about 40 yards into the endzone to put the Cowboys up 28-7.  T.O. proceeds to do his Eagles wing flapping TD celebration.  To be honest, he was kind of prancing around while doing it.  Which is weak. Nobody likes a prancing TD celebration.  And nobody in Philadelphia likes Terrell Owens.  Let me put this in terms you can all understand: this game sucks.

Eagles get a first down!  L.J. Smith lives!  On third and inches, Andy Reid calls a pass play (natch) and Donovan does a little bit of scrambling before finding L.J.  A few plays later, McNabb had Smith open in the end zone but the couldn't connect.

On third and sixteen, Donovan finds Westbrook about 5 yards down the field (natch) and the Eagles settle for a David Akers field goal.  Dallas 28 Eagles 10

Movie commercial analysis: Did every single kid who was forced to read Beowulf when they were in high school absolutely despise it?  I'd refuse to see the movie based of the fact it'd probably give me nightmares of Mr Roper's English class.  One good fact about Beowulf, it introduced me to the concept of mead.  Anyone actually ever had mead?

Fight!  YES!  Break Terrell Owens ankle!  Kick Tony Romo in the groin!

Jason Witten catches a touchdown on an impressive pass from Tony Romo.  Will James, you didn't look to good.  34-10 Cowboys.

And with that, our live blog will probably suck from here on out.  Hey Eagles fans, you may want to send text messages to all your friends, just to make sure they don't do anything stupid.

Correll Buckhalter fumbles on the kick off return.  I'm fairly surprised the Cowboys didn't end up with it.

I quote: "You knew this would happen. When the game starts getting out of
reach, go back to talking about Andy Reid and his family. Now, the game
is secondary."

At least Brian Westbrook doesn't suck like the rest of the Eagles.  He runs for a nifty little scamper for a first down.

...Running out of things to say...

Jason Witten takes a -- *BOOM* /Madden -- hit that forces his helmet to fly off and continues to run another 20+ yards without his helmet.

Brian Dawkins makes the first good play against Terrell Owens all day, preventing more embarrassment.  The D stops Barber on third and goal.  This was a vital stop, keeping the Eagles within only 4 touchdowns instead of 5.

Prediction: Kevin Kolb will replace Donovan McNabb... at some point in the future.

The Eagles convert on a 4th and five.  Donovan McNabb then fails to connect with Terrence Newman on an out route.  Damn people just can't catch passes McNabb throws right to 'em.

TOUCHDOWN HANK BASKETT!  38-17 Cowboys.  Now all the Eagles have to do is execute a successful onside kick, score a touchdown, another onside kick, score a touchdown, another onside kick, score a touchdown, and it's a tie!

Onside kick attempt fails.

Not at all shocking news of the night: Terrell Owens loves attention.  Never would have guessed that one.

You know who you kind of have to feel bad for through all of this?  Brian Westbrook.  That guys is a beast.

And to cap off the piss poor night, Donovan finally gets a completion to Terrence Newman.

Final score: Dallas 38 Eagles 17

Are the Eagles really this bad?

Not So Fast Joel Embiid: Nik Stauskas's dad claims his son is the original 'The Process'

Not So Fast Joel Embiid: Nik Stauskas's dad claims his son is the original 'The Process'

Philadelphia 76ers sharp shooter Nik Stauskas is back on his "Sauce and Co." podcast with a couple of very special guests: his Momma Ruta and Pappa Paul.

After being overly Canadian in their take on Friday night's brutal loss -- "less than stellar" --  to the Orlando Magic, Mr. Stauskas brings the heat with a fantastic "fun fact."

"Speaking of Joel, I have a fun fact for your audience here," Paul Stauskas says. "I have to give him a new moniker."

He doesn't exactly have a new one yet but...

"'The Process' has already been taken. In 2013 there was a documentary made about Nik called 'Nik Stauskas: The Process.' So if Embiid wants to continue using that, I'm affraid he's going to have to pay a royalty."

                         [Related: Joel Embiid feels 'The Process' is about him]

And if you hit up YouTube, there is is, a 21-minute documentary about a younger Nik Stauskas.

"If this does blow up, there may be some royalty fees he owes me," Nik adds. "I'll have to bring that up to Joel."

"He's got the cheddar," Paul says. "So he can pay up."

Eagles Injury Update: Mathews and Matthews to return to practice

Eagles Injury Update: Mathews and Matthews to return to practice

If you're searching for some good news following the Eagles' dismal 32-14 loss to the Bengals on Sunday afternoon, here it is. 

Jordan Matthews (ankle) and Ryan Mathews (knee) are going to return to practice this week, head coach Doug Pederson said on Monday. 

Ryan Mathews, who suffered an MCL sprain against Seattle, has missed the last two weeks. The Eagles averaged just 77 yards rushing in those two losses, going with Wendell Smallwood, Darren Sproles and Kenjon Barner. 

Jordan Matthews, who has been the Eagles' best and most consistent receiver this season, suffered an ankle sprain against the Packers and was inactive on Sunday against the Bengals. It was the first game he ever missed in college or in the NFL. 

Wideout Dorial Green-Beckham, who injured his midsection and got X-rays during the game, has an oblique contusion, according to Pederson. Green-Beckham is sore and will be held from practice on Wednesday, but Pederson expects him to be "OK" for the Washington game on Sunday. 

Pederson said right tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai is "coming along," but isn't yet ready to return. 

"He's going to do a little more this week, not from a practice standpoint but from a rehab standpoint, and he's doing good," Pederson said. "But we'll see where he is again later in the week."

In Vaitai's absence, left guard Allen Barbre has shifted from left guard to right tackle and Stefen Wisniewski has replaced him at left guard.
