PHILADELPHIA — It feels like a preseason game, and the play may even be worse. 

Because of Jon Kitna's strained oblique, Stephen McGee gets the start for the Cowboys and struggles mightily.  In the first half McGee completed 4 of 8 passes for 33 yards.  Take away a 31 yard bubble screen to Miles Austin and the numbers are awful.  The Cowboys converted just one of seven third downs.

The Eagles have decided not to play most of their best players, including quarterback Michael Vick, wide receiver DeSean Jackson, and running back LeSean McCoy.  Kevin Kolb, a Texas native, has thrown a TD pass, but his fumble and DeMarcus Ware's return for a touchdown tied the game at seven.  Ware has a couple of sacks to go along with the score.

With a 7-7 score at the break, the best Cowboy nation should can hope for is that there won't be overtime.
