Philly 1, T.O. 0

Everything went exactly right for Philly in today's Eagles-Cowboys game: The Eagles won by two touchdowns, Terrell Owens was shut down almost completely and sulked on the sidelines all afternoon, Donovan McNabb played a great game, and there was no was next to no violent/over-the-top fan behavior that brought shame upon the city, at least not according to early reports.

As their first NFC East win since 2004, it's a monkey off the Eagles' back, no question about it.

As for the Vikings, I watched the first half at a bar and was so disgusted by the horribly sloppy play by both teams that I went home at halftime. So glad to see from ESPN Gamecast that they scored 23 points in the fourth quarter to beat the Lions. Then again, it was the Lions. They could have given up 223 points in the fourth, and they still wouldn't fire Matt Millen.

I still love the Vikes, but everything about them this year screams "8-8" to me. At least they've stayed off the boats this year, although we haven't hit the bye week yet.
