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

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
