    It’s that time of week. Time to man up and make your pick for this week’s game. Get it right, and your kids will get presents this year! YAY! A good parent always gambles enough to provide for the little ones. Here we go:

    Six of 10 ESPN Experts: Eagles. On the road? Hoo boy.

    Yahoo! Users: Eagles. (no score)

    Mike Silver: Eagles. (no score)

    Pete Prisco (CBS): Cowboys.

    AJ Daulerio: Eagles.

    Index Card I Threw Up In The Air With The Name Of Each Team On Either Side, Seeing Which Team Would Land Face Up: Eagles. (Card Record: 8-6)

    The Wife:
    Cowboys.

    Me: These are two teams with a rich and storied history of choking in the 21st century. They're MASTERS of soiling the bed. Someone is going to screw up at the end of this game. And shockingly, I don't think it's gonna be Andy Reid. This is the perfect setup for one of Tony Romo's patented choke jobs. It's really just a matter of how it's all gonna go down. Is Romo gonna throw eight picks in the final six minutes? Will Romo take a sack with no timeouts left? Or will Romo opt for a more subtle choke, like when he overthrew Miles Austin against the Giants? I can't wait to find out. It's like an early Christmas gift. SO EXCITING. EAGLES 33, COWBOYS 30. (2011 picks: 8-6)
