Wendell Smallwood has missed five games for the Eagles since being drafted in the fifth round last year. But tonight’s showdown against the Dallas Cowboys marks the first time the Eagles running back is a healthy scratch. With the recent acquisition of Jay Ajayi and the return to health of tight end Zach Ertz, there simply is no more room for Smallwood, who in the Eagles last game carried five times for 25 yards in a blowout victory over Denver.
How much easier the path to the NFC East crown will become with a victory over the Dallas Cowboys will be of no concern to the Philadelphia Eagles when the teams meet Sunday night (8:30 p.m., NBC). They just want to get in, take care of that difficult piece of business and then maybe allow themselves to think about it on the flight home. Until then, it’s all about the matchups, which would seem to favor the Eagles (8-1) all around, thanks in part to the unavailability of three key Cowboys (5-4).
Almost every time the Eagles face the Cowboys, there’s some kind of extra electricity. And anything can happen. They’re like Big 5 games Philadelphia fans have become accustomed to expecting through the years. So as the Eagles get ready to head to Dallas this weekend for the first of their two regular-season matchups, we decided to identify and flash back to the five most significant wins the Eagles have enjoyed over their NFC East rivals just in this century alone.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
