Philadelphia (+3.5) at Dallas (12-9-18)

Recommended Posts

4:25 EST  Joe Buck, Troy Aikman and Erin Andrews on FOX

inside the AT and T stadium in Arlington Texas...over-under at 44

 

Eagle QB Carson Wentz (257 of 369, 2,846, 18 TDs, 7 INTs) will look for TE Zack Erntz (93 catches for 978 yards) against a shaky Dallas secondary

but the Eagles need to control the Cowboy pass rushers, led by DeMarcus Lawrence (9.5 sacks) .

Philadelphia has no running back with more than 400 yards gained...and new WR Golden Tate has done nothing so far

 

Dallas QB Zak Prescott (243 of 364, 2,657 yards, 134 TDs) has thrown only five interceptions all season and his best pass is a handoff to Ezekiel Elliott (240 carries, 1,140 yards, No. 2 (to Todd Gurley)  in the NFL)

the Cowboys receivers are very average. but Elliott has 53 catches for 423 yards.

 

This one comes down to Elliott against the Eagles' rushing 'D' which has allowed just 55 rushing first downs all season.

'Zeke' ran for 2 TDs in the 27-20 Dallas win at Philadelphia last month.

 

The 2 biggest questions in this rivalry game always are: 1.) How can Dallas possibly be in the NFC East?

..and 2.) How will the Cowboys screw it up this time.?   Dallas has a bad habit of losing home games where they are favored.

…..this season's 20-13 win over the Giants, the 26-24 win over Detroit and the 28-14 home loss to Tennessee are examples..

 

Dallas should win at home but I would give the Eagles more than 3 points.

I love it when Dallas loses because the dozen ex-Cowboys on staff at all the sports stations just cry a river.

But there's no good bet here....stay away

Completely agree, what a load of crap.

 

 

 

 

 

And there's another bad call.

They called the TE for offensive PI.  IMO it was a bad call.

Eagles at the Dallas 2-yard-line

 

Both of these teams have terrible late game pass defense

    • Ballard and Reich seem high on Brissett and will probably try to give him a long term contract after the season. If the Colts end up tanking the season then I'd expect them to draft their future QB in the first round of the 2020 Draft.
    • Plus there is the rare possibility Luck changes his mind several years from now and unretires once he's 100% healthy, or decides to coach in some capacity. Luck did say Indy was his home, unless he changes his mind. We own his contract rights, so it'd be nice to leave open the possibility.
    • No you weren't. Still aren't. And no I wasn't.   I stand by everything I said in that post, which was directed at your absurd insistence that you're tougher than Andrew Luck because you bowled a 220 with a sore back.    And your response to this situation is petty and small, and pretty much reinforces everything I said earlier. 
    • Already said, but just to repeat:   He will count $18.4m against the the 2019 cap, and $6.4m against the 2020 cap. Nothing after that.    I get why they're not making an issue of the roster bonus. I don't like the precedent that it sets, but this is a rare situation. And when superstars retire and get asked to pay back bonus money, it usually goes poorly (like Calvin Johnson). So clean break, and it keeps good relations between the team and the player moving forward. 
    • Probably not but he's who we have now.  It's up to Brissett and the coaching staff to prove that they can be productive.  I have a sneaking suspicion, no evidence mind you, that Reich and Co prefer Kelly but hes got to serve his suspension. Its Jacoby's job to loose and hes got my full support, if not my full confidence.  Bottom line is Luck is gone.  Fans will move on after week 1 and the organization has already done so.  Given the circumstances i think we're in the best hand we could be.  Nothing to do now but see how it plays out.  Love Luck, grateful for the past 7 years, but hes moved on.  One day is all it's taken me to follow suit.  He's gone fans,  Colts play with the QB's they have not the one they want just like '17.  We all get to see what they're made of.  Go Colts.
