Dallas lost to New York Giants two years ago and Washington last season. ... Eagles QB Nick Foles leads league with 118.8 rating. He has 25 TDs and two interceptions. ... After committing 37 turnovers last season, Eagles have just 18 this year and a plus-10 turnover margin. ... Eagles should break franchise record for total yards. They need 77 to break mark of 6,386 from 2011. ... Philadelphia has at least one takeaway in 11 straight games, longest streak since 2006, including playoffs. Last such streak in regular season was 2004. ... LeSean McCoy can become first Philadelphia RB to lead league in rushing since Hall of Famer Steve Van Buren in 1949. McCoy needs 93 yards from scrimmage to break Brian Westbrook's team record of 2,104 from 2007. ... Eagles WR DeSean Jackson needs 106 yards receiving to break Mike Quick's franchise record of 1,409 in 1983. ...

Cowboys had interceptions from Sean Lee, Barry Church and Brandon Carr in Week 7 win at Philadelphia, but all three came against Matt Barkley after Foles was knocked out of game with concussion. 17-3 Dallas win was only game Eagles haven't scored touchdown this season. ... Cowboys WR Dez Bryant has 85 catches for 1,134 yards and 12 TDs. He needs five catches to become first Dallas receiver with at least 90 catches, 1,000 yards and 10 TDs in consecutive seasons. ...
