The Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys play a crucial NFC East NFL game Sunday night at AT&T Stadium on NBC.
The Philadelphia Eagles look for their second road victory of the season to remain in the NFC East division race. Five of the Philadelphia Eagles last nine losses have come on the road. Carson Wentz is completing 63.8 percent of his passes for 1,324 yards, eight touchdowns and three interceptions. Wentz has one touchdown pass on his last 50 pass attempts. Jordan Matthews and Darren Sproles have combined for 564 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Nelson Agholor has 18 receptions. The Philadelphia Eagles ground game is averaging 111.5 yards per contest, and Ryan Mathews leads the way with 262 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, Philadelphia is allowing 14.7 points and 307 yards per game. Rodney McLeod leads the Philadelphia Eagles with 43 tackles, Brandon Graham has four sacks and Nigel Bradham has one interception.
The Dallas Cowboys look for their sixth straight victory to take full control of the NFC East division. The Dallas Cowboys have lost four of their last six games when returning from a bye week. Dak Prescott is completing 68.7 percent of his passes for 1,486 yards, seven touchdowns and one interception. Prescott has all seven of his touchdown passes in his last four games. Cole Beasley and Terrance Williams have combined for 701 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Jason Witten has 28 receptions. The Dallas Cowboys ground game is averaging 161.2 yards per contest, and Ezekiel Elliott leads the way with 703 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively, Dallas is allowing 17.8 points and 358.3 yards per game. Sean Lee leads the Dallas Cowboys with 58 tackles, Tyrone Crawford has two sacks and Barry Church has two interceptions.
The Eagles are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games on fieldturf and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Cowboys are 4-11-1 ATS in their last 16 home games and 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games following a bye week. The Eagles are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Dallas and the underdog is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 meetings.
The Philadelphia Eagles seem to be coming back down to earth a bit with losses in two of their last three games and subpar play from Wentz at quarterback. Meanwhile, the Dallas Cowboys have shown no signs of slowing down, as their ground game is by far the best in the NFL and Prescott continues to take care of the football. The Cowboys also had an extra week to prepare for this game and are expected to get Dez Bryant back. I don't like this game for the Eagles at all with the way the Dallas Cowboys are playing. Dallas has given us no reason to jump off the bandwagon yet.
Give me the home team and the reasonable number.
