PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Donovan McNabb has seen plenty of the Dallas Cowboys without viewing any of their game tapes.
``I've been watching 'Hard Knocks.' Who hasn't been?'' McNabb said, referring to the HBO series that profiled America's Team during training camp.
McNabb and the rest of the Philadelphia Eagles won't allow themselves to savor a dominating victory over St. Louis. There's no time to dwell on old news when it's Cowboys week.
McNabb couldn't even make it through his post-game news conference after Sunday's 38-3 win over the woeful Rams without hearing questions about Dallas. The rivals meet next Monday night in the final home opener at Texas Stadium.
``They're a confident bunch. They're an experienced bunch,'' McNabb said. ``There's a reason why they won 13 games last year. So we know that it's going to be a battle. Every time we play it goes to the wire somehow, so we have to prepare ourselves to go out and give up a good fight.''
tled the Cleveland Browns 28-10 to start a season they expect to end with their sixth Super Bowl title. Tony Romo threw for 320 yards, Terrell Owens had a touchdown catch and the defense overwhelmed a strong Browns offense.
It'll be a measuring stick for the Eagles, who benefited from playing a woeful opponent in Week 1.
``I don't think the Rams are near as bad as what that score showed,'' Eagles coach Andy Reid said. ``There is a lot of emphasis put on the first game of the season and it's the most important game for us that week, but the reality of it is that there are 15 more of them and that's just one of 16 games. Can we assess the talent? Well, we can for this week. We did well this week, but it's time to rip that one up and get on with the next one.''
The Eagles have fared pretty well on the road against Dallas the last two years. Jeff Garcia, subbing for an injured McNabb, led the underdog Eagles to a 23-7 win on Christmas Day in 2006 that helped Philadelphia capture the NFC East title. A suffocating defense smothered Romo and the Cowboys in a 10-6 victory last December.
Past success won't matter much when the teams face each other in the national spotlight.
``It's a new season,'' McNabb said. ``We're looking forward to playing those guys and we just have to have a great week of practice. It's going to be a challenge for us.''
