Philly in Dallas: The Flyers are in Dallas tonight to take on the Stars.

The Flyers are hoping to get Claude Giroux back for this game as his status was upgraded to day-to-day with a concussion.
Philly in Dallas II: The Eagles head to Dallas as a two point underdog. Jerry Jones said on 105.e the Fan in Dallas that he was "nervous" and "scared" about the game. Was this a calculated comment or an honest thought about the Eagles? The Eagles humiliated the Cowboys in Philadelphia and now with two seasons hanging in the balance, maybe Jerry should be nervous and scared.
