NEW YORK (AP) – The Philadelphia Eagles’ game at the Dallas Cowboys will remain on Sunday night Dec. 2 even though neither team has a winning record.
The NFL announced its flexible scheduling decision Tuesday. Starting in Week 11, the league can move a more appealing matchup into prime time on NBC if need be.
NFC East showdowns are always big ratings draws even when its teams are struggling. The Cowboys are 5-5 but only a game behind the New York Giants in the division going into their Thanksgiving game against the Washington Redskins. The Eagles are 3-7 and have lost six in a row heading into Monday’s game against Carolina.
