The final 2013 NFL live stream and televised game of the regular season schedule will feature a "do or die" situation between the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys. In this game, which will feature Dallas hosting the matchup without star quarterback Tony Romo, the winner will win the division, and also gain entry into the postseason. The losing team will watch the playoffs from the outside looking in. The latest televised and live streaming NFL game will be featured through NBC sports networks and other sources.
An ESPN.com report from Dec. 29 indicates that Kyle Orton will be the starting quarterback on Sunday night for the Cowboys as they host Nick Foles and NFC East rival, the Philadelphia Eagles. Philly enters with a record of 9-6 overall and a better road record (5-2) than they have at home. Dallas on the other hand is 8-7 overall and 5-2 at home, with a perfect record in division play. Will the Eagles be able to change that tonight and get into the 2013-14 postseason?
All the Eagles need in tonight's game is a win or a tie in order to take the division and qualify for the playoffs. In their previous game, Dallas won by a final of 17-3, but that was with Romo at the helm for the Cowboys. He finished that game with 317 yards passing, 1 touchdown and 2 interceptions. Just last week, the Eagles had a major statement win at home, crushing playoff-hopeful Chicago by a final of 54-11. Nick Foles passed for 230 yards and two touchdowns while LeSean McCoy had 18 carriers for 133 yards and two touchdowns. Thanks to McCoy, the Eagles are currently first in the league in rushing yards, averaging 161.9 a game.
Not only that, but Philadelphia is a top 10 team in terms of offense, as they're ninth in passing yards with 258.7 a game. They also rank 12th in rushing defense, limiting teams to 107.5 per game. Dallas was only near the top ten when it came to passing, where they rank 14th, but with Romo out, that category seems bleak unless Kyle Orton has a huge game tonight.
Odds makers expect an Eagles victory tonight, as they opened as as 2 1/2 point dogs but have since become touchdown favorites after the news of the Tony Romo injury that will keep him sidelined. The over/under is currently at 53 total points for the game at various sports books, while weather shouldn't be too much of a factor. It's expected to be cloudy skies and a kickoff temperature of 35 degrees, with a wind chill of 28. If the temperature gets too cold, the Cowboys will simply shut the roof on the stadium, but will they shut the door on the Eagles for the 2013-14 playoffs?
Sunday Night Football featuring the Eagles vs. Cowboys has a start time scheduled for 8:30 p.m. EST. The final game of the regular season will be televised around the nation on local NBC affiliate stations for cable or satellite. In addition, the NBC Sports Live Extra website will have a live streaming presentation of the game for fans to watch online. Other options to keep updated on the game include audio streams through SIRIUS XM Satellite radio and NFL Audio Pass, as well as an on-demand replay through a NFL Game Rewind subscription.
