if the Eagles do have to turn to there running game, what makes you think that they will be able to move the ball consistently against the Cowboys defense?

your wrong here. if the Birds go to the run the majority of the time, they will be playing right into Woodson/Williams strength. they are both great against the run and the closer Williams is to the line of scrimage, the better he is.

btw, I also forgot how scary talented the Eagles running game is too.
