PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles have come a long way since the previous time they played Dallas.

Now, they have to tie or beat the Cowboys to complete a worst-to-first journey.

The NFC East title is at stake when the Eagles (9-6) play at Dallas (8-7) next Sunday night. These aren't the same teams who met in Philadelphia in October.

Both teams were 3-3 when the Cowboys came to town and became the first defense to shut down Chip Kelly's high-flying offense. Foles, making his second start for an injured Michael Vick, struggled before suffering a concussion in a 17-3 loss.

The Eagles followed that up with a 15-7 loss to the New York Giants. But Foles returned the next game, tied an NFL record with seven touchdown passes in a win at Oakland and has led Philadelphia to a 6-1 record in his past seven starts. He has 25 TD passes and only two interceptions.
