Eagles Secure NFC East

Eagles Secure NFC East

Philadelphia Eagles secured the NFC East division following a 24-22 victory against the Dallas Cowboys at the AT & T Stadium on Sunday evening.
.
Chip Kelly’s team brought up their 10th success of the regular season. If they are to make the Superbowl though, they will have to come through the competitive NFC half of the NFL draw which includes Betfair favourites Seattles Seahawks and Carolina Panthers.
.
It is the third straight year that the Cowboys have lost a division decider for a play-off spot in NFL. They end the season with an 8-8 record once again and will now be preparing for their next campaign in 2014.
Dallas were without the services of Tony Romo for the crucial tie in Texas. He had back surgery on Friday and is in rehabilitation. That allowed Kyle Orton to step into the team as a replacement.
.
Despite leading for large parts of the match, the Eagles had cornerback Brandon Boykin to thank for an interception from an Orton pass with less than two minutes to go. That was crucial for the visitors as it enabled them to hold on to the win.
.
Orton finished with 358 yards for the Cowboys but missed the opportunity to secure the victory for his side when he was in possession in the closing stages.
.
Nick Foles starred for the Eagles as he threw two touchdown passes in the game. The first was to NFL rushing champion LeSean McCoy, while the second successfully reached Brent Celek.
McCoy is the first Philadelphia running back to win the rushing award since Steve van Buren in 1948.
.
Philadelphia will now take on New Orelans on Saturday evening in the wild-card round. They will be favourites with Betfair to come out on top against the Saints in the outright market for the game.
