Tonight the battle for the NFC East plays out in Dallas, as the Eagles swoop into Texas for this "win and you're in" contest.

With Tony Romo out, Kyle Orton is getting his first start since 2011. Backing up Orton at QB is 41 year old 'formerly retired NFL QB' Jon Kitna, who has been teaching math and coaching high school football in his hometown of Tacoma, WA. Kitna said he is donating his $53,000 game check to Lincoln High. What a cool guy!

The Cowboys will be facing six former Texans on the Eagles roster:

  • LB Connor Barwin
  • CB Roc Carmichael
  • TE James Casey
  • WR Jeff Maehl
  • LB DeMeco Ryans
  • P Donnie Jones

With the playoffs on the line, it's sure to be a good battle! At least we can cheer for former Texans players while the current Texans clean out their lockers and prepare for 2014. Pull up a chair and share your thoughts below.
