Tonight's game


Eagles (5-3) at Cowboys (7-1)

Time: 9 p.m.

TV: Chs. 2, 7

Line: Cowboys by 14

Injuries: Eagles: DT Rhett Hall (lungs), and T Lester Holmes (knee) are out. WR Fred Barnett (thigh) is questionable. Cowboys: C Roy Donaldson (knee and DT Russell Maryland (knee) are questionable. QB Troy Aikman (calf), LB Dixon Edwards (pectoral), DE Charles Haley (back), CB Clayton Holmes (groin), RB Daryl Johnston (groin), DT Leon Lett (biceps), S Brock Marion (thumb), CB Deion Sanders (hamstring), RB Emmitt Smith (shoulder), DE Tony Tolbert (knee), T Mark Tuinei (back), S Charlie Williams (ankle), T Erik Williams (calf), and WR Kevin Williams (quadriceps) are probable.

Outlook: Philadelphia, which is 4-0 since Rodney Peete replaced Randall Cunningham as the starting quarterback, needs the win to stay close in the NFC East race. Peete was Troy Aikman's backup with Dallas last year. He started one game when Aikman was injured and defeated the Eagles, 31-9, as Dallas clinched the division title.

Vito Stellino's pick: Cowboys 28, Eagles 20 -- Will the Cowboys be looking ahead to the 49ers?
