   ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Nick Foles threw two touchdown passes, NFL rushing champion LeSean McCoy had 131 yards and a receiving score and the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Dallas Cowboys 24-22 in a win-or-go-home game for the NFC East title Sunday night.
   The Cowboys (8-8), with Kyle Orton filling in two days after Tony Romo had back surgery, lost to a division rival with a playoff berth on the line for the third straight year.
   The Eagles (10-6) will host New Orleans a wild-card game Saturday night.
   Dallas trailed 24-16 when Orton threw a 32-yard touchdown pass to Dez Bryant. Orton went back to Bryant for the 2-point conversion, but Cary Williams dove to punch the ball away.
   The Cowboys got another chance with a stop from their beleaguered defense, but Orton's pass was intercepted by Brandon Boykin on the first play to seal the win.
   McCoy finished with 1,607 yards.
