NFL schedule 2012: Cowboys host the struggling Eagles in Week 13

Following a Thanksgiving letdown, Dallas hosts another NFC East rival in Philadelphia

Ronald Martinez

Dallas' road to recovery hit a speed bump on Thanksgiving, but the road may be clearing out with the Eagles coming to town. Robert Griffin III built a lead on Thursday that the Cowboys could not overcome and Dallas falls two games behind the Giants in the NFC East. But the Eagles have lost seven straight, most recently to Carolina on Monday night.

Tony Romo's up-and-down season continues. The "Romo Coaster" threw for 441 yards against the Redskins in a comeback attempt, but did so on 62 pass attempts and threw two interceptions. This was the second time Romo had thrown 62 passes in a game, the other being a loss to the Giants in Week 7. Running back DeMarco Murray will miss his seventh straight game as Felix Jones looks to pick up the slack for a struggling Dallas ground game.

The Eagles are in far worse shape than the Cowboys, with even more injury trouble. Michael Vick and LeSean McCoy both missed Mondays games, and their returns are questionable. In worse shape is head coach Andy Reid, who appears to be on the hot seat after a disaster of a season already. The Eagles will look to rookie quarterback Nick Foles to right the ship and keep everyone employed.

Here's the full schedule for Week 13:

Thursday, November 29

Sunday, December 2
Monday, December 3
