Records Before the Game
Dallas Cowboys 4-1, 2-0 Away
Philadelphia Eagles 5-0, 2-0 Home
This game will boil down to who’s the better team! Philadelphia has
been crowned as the best team in the NFC. They are the last undefeated
team in the NFL and everyone is saying that the Eagles are super bowl
bound! Wait … no one told the Dallas Cowboys to fold the tents and call
it quits for the season. This game will be the measuring stick for the
division, season and headed to the playoffs. Let’s take a closer look
at this week's Sunday night match up in Philly!
When there’s smoke … There's the Dallas Defense!
Dallas has one of the best defenses in the NFL. Dallas has the only team
(defense) that has only allowed 1 touchdown in the first 5 games of this
season. Dallas leads the league in sacks, quarterback pressures and
tackles for loss. Dallas defensive line reminds me of the 85 Bears, but
Dallas has been playing some solid ball without their leader Dak
Prescott. Keep in mind that he could be cleared at any time. I’m not
about to go into who should be the quarterback or who shot John. The key
for this team is the running game. Philadelphia will need to prove to
the world that they can stop or eliminate Dallas’ running game. Dallas
offense is averaging 18.6 points a game while the defense is only giving
up 14.4 points to opposition. The x factor for the Cowboys will be the
play of the tight ends. Moving the chains on 3rd will be key for Dallas
The test for the Eagles will be how to move the ball against the Dallas
defense. Quarterback Jalen Hurts has the Eagles offense clicking on all
cylinders. The first 5 games the Eagles won was against decent teams.
Philadelphia is averaging 27 points per game while the defense is giving
up 17.6 on that side of the ball. Both teams are really close in all
statistical categories on offense and defense. The Eagles defense will
need to stop the run plain and simple.
ESPN has the Eagles with a 62.7% chance of winning at home on Sunday
night. Dallas’ defense versus Philadelphia’s offense. May the best
team win! The over/under is 42. The safe bet is taking the over! I’m
taking Dallas by 9!
Final Score: Cowboys 27 - Eagles 18!
