It’s probably too little, too late, but the Eagles’ offensive line turned in one of its best performances of the season Sunday night against the Cowboys.
Sure, it helped that Dallas was without Jay Ratliff, Sean Lee and Bruce Carter, but the offense scored points on six of 10 offensive possessions. Nick Foles was sacked just once and had a comfortable pocket for most of the game. On the ground, the Eagles averaged 7.0 yards per carry, which help neutralize DeMarcus Ware. The Eagles often ran play-fakes right at Ware to slow him down.
Below is the player-by-player breakdown.
The following Eagles are inactive for Sunday night’s game against the Cowboys: Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy, Nate Menkin, Chris Polk, Marvin McNutt and Greg Salas.
From Danny Watkins’ ankle to Nick Foles’ development, here are 10 things to know about how the Eagles’ offense matches up with the Cowboys’ defense.
The look of the offensive line may change yet again this week, this time (drumroll) with Evan Mathis playing center.
Dallas Reynolds was sidelined at Wednesday’s practice with an ankle injury. He hopes to be ready for Sunday night’s game in Dallas. If he’s not, Mathis could very well be the guy.
Here is a look at the Eagles-Panthers injury report heading into Monday night’s game:

The following Eagles are inactive for today’s 1 p.m. game against the Redskins: Michael Vick, Chris Polk, Mardy Gilyard, Jason Avant, Vinny Curry, Phillip Hunt and Nate Menkin.

Mike Shanahan caught some flak for his comments following Washington’s loss to the Panthers two weeks ago where it sounded like he was conceding the season.
“Now you’re playing to see who obviously is going to be on your football team for years to come,” Shanahan said. “Now we get a chance to evaluate players and see where we’re at.”
You never want your coach to sound like he has thrown in the towel with seven games to play, but it’s hard to totally dismiss Shanahan’s mindset. His team just fell to the lowly Panthers, dropping them 3-6. He has a promising rookie quarterback and a grouping around him that obviously isn’t getting the job done collectively. So you use the remaining games to decipher which individuals fit with your vision moving forward.
The Eagles, also at 3-6, will be doing much of the same thing.
