Bradford relishing Cowboys trip

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford is confident of putting in a strong display against NFC East rivals the Dallas Cowboys this weekend.

Bradford struggled in the week two loss to the Cowboys at Lincoln Financial Field, throwing two interceptions and giving up a fumble as the visitors won 20-10 despite losing starting quarterback Tony Romo to injury in the third quarter.

"I think I feel more comfortable in the pocket. I feel like my pocket movement and awareness has been better. I think my play has still been inconsistent and I think there are things that I've got to do better to put us in better situations out there, but I do feel like I have improved," Bradford said.

The Eagles have made a lot of progress offensively since their early season woes and Bradford is confident they will come to the party against a struggling Cowboys outfit.

"You could ask anyone in our locker room. I think we all feel better with what we're doing now. We've all grown more confident with what we're doing now and I think the overall feeling is that we just have a better feeling about things now," he added.

"Dallas has some key guys back since we played them and in the last couple of weeks they've been playing really well on defense. It's not extremely complex scheme-wise, but the guys they have play hard and I think their pass rush is much improved since we played them.

"They seem to be getting after the quarterback so we have to be balanced and do a good job running the football and I've got to do a good job making decisions and getting the ball out of my hand."
