Philadelphia @ Dallas
Current Records: Philadelphia 4-9-1; Dallas 5-9
What to Know
This Sunday, the Dallas Cowboys are hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 30.93 points per matchup. The Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles will face off in an NFC East battle at 4:25 p.m. ET Sunday at AT&T Stadium. Dallas should still be riding high after a win, while Philadelphia will be looking to regain their footing.
Dallas was expected to lose against the San Francisco 49ers last week, but instead they received a nice stocking stuffer. Dallas came out on top against San Francisco by a score of 41-33. Dallas’ RB Tony Pollard was one of the most active players for the team, punching in two rushing touchdowns.
The Cowboys’ defense was a presence as well, as it collected two interceptions and two fumbles. DB Donovan Wilson picked up that interception and then proceeded to rub salt in the wound by taking it back the other way for a touchdown.
The Eagles came within a touchdown against the Arizona Cardinals last week, but they wound up with a 33-26 loss. QB Jalen Hurts put forth a good effort for the losing side as he passed for three TDs and 338 yards on 44 attempts in addition to rushing for one TD and 63 yards. That was the first 300+ yard effort for Hurts this season.
The Cowboys are expected to lose this next one by 3. They hadn’t treated bettors all too well in the past (they are 4-10), but they might be worth taking a chance on now after beating the spread two games in a row.
Philadelphia’s defeat took them down to 4-9-1 while Dallas’ victory pulled them up to 5-9. One last thing to keep an eye on: Dallas gashed the right side of the field in their last contest, rushing toward the right sideline for 53 yards on 7.57 yards per rush. That’s bad news for the Eagles, who had a hard time containing the rush on the right side of the field against Arizona.
