Flying Low

Can't think of anything more contrary to the Christmas spirit than a Cowboys-Eagles game. The Eagles have the nastiest batch of fans in the NFL—these are the charitable folks who cheered when Michael Irvin sustained a career-ending spinal injury and was lying motionless on the field—plus there's serious bad blood between former Eagle Terrell Owens and Jeff Garcia, the Eagles' fill-in starting quarterback. Seems Owens insinuated Garcia was gay a few years ago. That, and he continually undermined him when they were teammates at San Francisco. Spitting, anyone? This is also a huge game for both teams: For the Cowboys, it could mean the difference between winning their division or entering the playoffs as a wild card. The Cowboys lost the first matchup this year, but that was before Romo took over as QB. Tune in at 4 p.m. to KXAS-Channel 5. The showdown takes place Monday at Texas Stadium.
