NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

It doesn’t get much better than the Green Bay Packers’ victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday Night Football. The game featured two top teams in the NFC with an established rivalry and tremendous storylines. It also ended up being an impressively competitive game that came down to a thrilling end on a last-second field goal.

Hopefully for casual football fans, Monday Night Football will have as entertaining a game this evening. However, the matchup will not be as thrilling as the Packers-49ers matchup was; instead, tonight’s game is between teams in the less-than-stellar NFC East division.

Yes, the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles have a long-standing rivalry, but that is the most compelling thing about this football game. Thankfully, ESPN is rolling out the “Manningcast” once again for tonight’s game, with Peyton and Eli Manning breaking down the game live on ESPN2.

The two teams split last year’s meetings, with the Eagles winning 23-9 in week 8 and the Cowboys returning the favor with a 37-17 victory in week 16. Here’s how to tune in for tonight’s game.
