The Philadelphia Eagles look for a victory after getting upset Monday against the Falcons. Sam Bradford is completing 69.2 percent of his passes for 336 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. Bradford has thrown a touchdown pass in 12 straight games. Jordan Matthews and Darren Sproles have combined for more than 170 receiving yards while Zach Ertz has three receptions. The Philadelphia Eagles ground game is averaging 63 yards per contest, and Sproles leads the way with 50 yards on five carries. Defensively, Philly is allowing 26 points and 395 yards per game. Mychal Kendricks leads the Eagles with 10 tackles, Fletcher Cox has a sack and Kiko Alonso has an interception. Seyi Ajirotutu and Marcus Smith are questionable with injuries.
The Cowboys are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Eagles are 11-24-1 ATS in their last 36 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Cowboys are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings in Philadelphia and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 meetings overall.
The Cowboys have beaten the Eagles in four of the last six meetings, but this is a different Philly team that started to gain some serious confidence in the second half of their season opener. The Cowboys are also going on the road and have to play without Dez Bryant, which is a major handicap against a Philly team that can light it up.
I like the Eagles to win this game and cover the chalk.
