Tony Romo puts damper on big party potential tonight at the Linc; next week in Dallas for NFC East crown

Tony Romo puts damper on big party potential tonight at the Linc; next week in Dallas for NFC East crown

It's never a great thing when you're counting on the Washington Redskins.

Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys found a way to fight back today down in DC and juuuust missed crumbling for the second week in a row.

The Redskins had the Cowboys up against the ropes in the fourth quarter but Romo found DeMarco Murray on 4th and goal from the ten yard line to put the Cowboys up for good. Well, after Dan Bailey barely freakin' made the extra point.

The incredible potential for a party at the Linc tonight was totally extinguished with the Cowboys victory today. Whether the Birds win or lose tonight does not matter for their playoff hopes. It could obviously help with seeding and momentum, but not whether they get in or not.

The Eagles must win in Dallas next week to win the NFC East and earn a playoff berth.

Chip had said earlier in the week that he'll stick with his regular guys regardless of the outcome of Washington-Dallas. Should he stick with that plan?

On the plus side, maybe you can have an extra cocktail or three tonight and not stress about the game all that much. #NoInjuries

Eagles Inactives: Rodney McLeod is out against the Giants

Rodney McLeod is inactive on Sunday. That's a big loss for the Eagles, who were hoping McLeod would be able to play against the Giants. 

McLeod entered the weekend listed as questionable with a hamstring injury he suffered against Kansas City last week. Chris Maragos will start in his place. 

The Eagles are without several key members of their secondary against Eli Manning and the Giants. 

Early before the game, McLeod worked out in front of head trainer Chris Peduzzi and then had a pow-wow with Peduzzi, head coach Doug Pederson, Howie Roseman, DBs coach Cory Undlin and others. After the meeting, he continued to work out on his own. 

McLeod missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday before he was a limited participant on Friday. He said he felt better throughout the week as he recovered from the Grade 1 strain. 

The Eagles are down to just Malcolm Jenkins, Maragos and recently claimed Trae Elston at safety. Linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill could also play safety in a pinch. 

Torrey Smith (illness) is playing on Sunday. He was listed as questionable. 

Here are are the Eagles' other inactive players for Sunday: Ronald Darby (ankle), Corey Graham (hamstring), Jaylen Watkins (hamstring), Destiny Vaeao (wrist), Shelton Gibson, Steven Means. 

Graham and Watkins missed practice all week with their own hamstring injuries and were ruled out on Friday. Darby is still out with his dislocated ankle. Newcomer Elston, who was claimed this week, is active. 

All eight offensive linemen are active for the first time this season. Chance Warmack will start in place of Isaac Seumalo at left guard. 

For the Giants, corner Janoris Jenkins is active. That's a big boost for New York. 

Here are their inactives: RB Wayne Gallman, TE Matt LaCosse, QB Davis Webb, LB B.J. Goodson, OL Bobby Hart, LB J.T. Thomas, DE Avery Moss.
