Would you rather not have to face a veteran pass-rusher this week on the field? Or watch him to go to a division rival that is already two games ahead of you in the standings?
That's the dilemma the Cowboys find themselves in after the Bears traded away Robert Quinn to the Eagles on Wednesday.
Quinn, a 12-year veteran who had an 11-sack season with the Cowboys in 2019, is now headed to Philadelphia, the only unbeaten team in the NFL.
Quinn set the Bears' single-season sack record in 2021 with 18.5. So far this year, he's had just one sack in seven games.
Drafted by the Rams in 2011, Quinn played seven years there, before one season in Miami, one in Dallas and was nearly halfway into his third season with the Bears before the trade.
The Cowboys face the Bears this Sunday at home, and square off with the Eagles on Dec. 24 at AT&T Stadium.
