KEY NFL BETTING TRENDS: The over is 4-0 in the Eagles' last four games on fieldturf, 7-1 in their last eight road games and 6-1 in their last seven games in December. The over is also 4-0 in the Cowboys' last four games following a straight up win, 5-1 in their last six games overall and 4-1 in their last five games versus NFC opponents. Dallas' defense has been atricous all season and now it will attempt to slow down a red-hot offense that features a three-headed monster in Nick Foles, LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson. And even though Romo is out, Kyle Orton is more than capable of putting together a decent game in order to push the combined score over the number.
