Eagles vs. Cowboys 2012: Game preview, kickoff time, TV schedule and more

Nick Foles will start for the third time in his professional career, as the Philadelphia Eagles take on the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football.


Nick Foles will make his third start for the injured Michael Vick on Sunday, when the Philadelphia Eagles head to Texas to take on the Dallas Cowboys in Week 13.

At 3-8, Philadelphia's playoff hopes are merely a dream at this point, but the Eagles will look to play spoiler, and hand the Cowboys their seventh loss of the season -- a loss that would crush Dallas' playoff hopes.

Eagles starting running back LeSean McCoy will miss Philadelphia's Week 13 contest against Dallas. McCoy, like Vick, is still recovering from a concussion. Bryce Brown, who rushed for 178 yards and two touchdowns against the Carolina Panthers on Monday Night Football, will once again start for the Eagles at tailback.

While the Eagles are nursing injuries, the Cowboys are beginning to become slightly more healthy. Dallas starting running back DeMarco Murray is listed as questionable for the contest, but Cowboys owner Jerry Jones expects Murray to play. Murray has been sidelined since Dallas' Week 6 loss against the Baltimore Ravens.

Per OddsShark, Philadelphia enters the game as 10.5 point underdogs.

Game date/time: Sunday, Dec. 2, 8:20 p.m. ET

Location: Cowboys Stadium, Arlington, Texas

TV schedule: NBC, nationally
