The Philadelphia Eagles (9-6) will cap off the 2013 NFL season with back-to-back appearances on Sunday Night Football, playing the Dallas Cowboys (8-7) in a winner-take-all game with the NFC East title and a playoff spot up for grabs.

The Eagles, who crushed the Chicago Bears last week 54-11, have vastly improved their team - particularly on the offensive side of the ball - under rookie head coach Chip Kelly, guiding the team to a better finish than last year's 4-12 finish. Eagle QB Nick Foles went 21-for-25, throwing for 230 yards and two touchdowns against the Bears while RB LeSean McCoy ran for 133 yards on 18 carries and two touchdowns while catching six passes for 29 yards.

"I'm excited to go to Dallas and play another game," said Foles. "It's a huge game. Everyone knows what's on the line."

The Cowboys have had success against Kelly's high-powered offense, having defeated the Eagles in Week 7, with Foles having his worst game of the year and being pulled from the lineup after suffering a concussion in the third quarter.

"I know everybody is going to dwell on last time, but this game isn't the last game," said Foles. "If I look into every little thing that I did and try to break it down, I'll drive myself crazy as well. We did not play well, but from that game we've grown together as a team."

But the Eagles will face a Cowboys team that will be without starting QB Tony Romo, who is suffering from a herniated disc injury that required season-ending surgery. Romo looked into non-surgical procedures that he hoped would allow him to compete this weekend but elected for surgery on Saturday.

"We've been operating as if Kyle Orton is going to be our starting quarterback," said Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett. "At the same time we were trying to do whatever we could to see if we could help Tony and get him back as quickly as possible. We just felt like this was the best course of action."

Kyle Orton will start for the Cowboys at quarterback, with the team recently signing former Dallas Cowboy Jon Kitna, the 41-one-year-old retired quarterback who was teaching math at Lincoln High School in Tacoma, WA until this week and will be donating his entire NFL paycheck to the school, to back up Orton with Romo out for the season.

With Romo out, Orton will lean on RB DeMarco Murray to help move the sticks, who should see an increase in his workload, rushing for 614 yards and six touchdowns over the last six games, averaging 5.8 yards per carry during that stretch.

"I think the guys have got a lot of confidence in me. I've got a lot of confidence in myself," said Orton. "I can fall back on my experience. I've played a lot of games in this league. I don't feel I have to do too much with the ball, just get it to 29 (Murray), 82 (Jason Witten) and 88 (Bryant)."
