American Football - Eagles pip Cowboys to claim NFC East division title

The Philadelphia Eagles intercepted a pass from Kyle Orton in the final minutes to claim the NFC East division title with a nail-biting 24-22 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

With the conference's final playoff spot on the line in a winner-take-all matchup, Dallas (8-8) got the ball with just under two minutes and had a chance to win it but Orton's pass was picked off by Brandon Boykin to end their season.

Orton was filling in for injured Tony Romo (back surgery) and making his first start since 2011.

Philadelphia's (10-6) win earns them a wild card playoff matchup that they will host against the New Orleans Saints (11-5) next week.
