Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) October 6, 2006
The most hyped game of the weekend takes place in Philadelphia on Sunday as Terrell Owens returns to face his old team. Eagles’ fans are already worked up as they prepare to taunt T.O. One sign reads: "Hope you feel better T.O. so we can hurt you." Another said: "Get a refill. You'll need those pills soon." Some fans were chanting last week in preparation "Oh-Deee! O.D., O.D., O.D., Oh-Deee, O.D." Owens missed most of training camp and has been a distraction every week of the season.
The latest was his "accidental overdose" of prescription pills which was first reported as an attempted suicide. Owens denied the reported suicide attempt at a news conference the next day. Owens played with a plate and glove to protect his broken finger last week and caught five passes for 88 yards in the Cowboys' 45-14 win at Tennessee. In 2004, Owens had 77 catches for 1,200 yards and a franchise-record 14 receiving touchdowns for the Eagles. In 145 career games with San Francisco, Philadelphia and Dallas, Owens has 730 catches for 10,722 yards and 102 touchdowns.
"Hopefully, we'll give T.O. something to be proud of," Cowboys cornerback Aaron Glenn said. "I know he's going to go out there and do his deal."
"It's big for him going back," Cowboys tight end Jason Witten said. "It's such a big game for us because it's a division game and there's always a little extra enthusiasm out there when you're playing Philadelphia."
"I don't think my team will be distracted," Cowboys coach Bill Parcells said of Owens' return to Philadelphia. "All we're worried about is trying to beat a football team that is in first place in our division."
The Eagles played without star running back Brian Westbrook in their 31-9 win over Green Bay on Monday night. McNabb passed for 288 yards and two touchdowns. Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb will also be in the spotlight, although not by his choice. "It's a division game and we need it. Anything else, I personally don't care," McNabb said.
"They are a tremendous football team and we have to prepare ourselves properly," Eagles coach Andy Reid said Tuesday. "We understand that it's not about one person coming in here, but it's about that whole football team. They have strengths across the board and it is important we prepare ourselves right this week and eliminate any distractions that might be presented to us."
The Cowboys swept the season series last year, winning at home, 33-10 on October 9 and in Philly on November 14, 21-20.
