NFL | Philadelphia Eagles (6-6) at Dallas Cowboys (7-5)
James Lang-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys will meet up on Sunday in Week 14 NFL action. 

This year, the Eagles are sitting at 6-6 overall. Philly has had some rough spots this year but after falling in three of four games they’ve won consecutive outings versus the Giants and Redskins. 

In the 28-13 win over the Redskins Monday evening, Philly QB Carson Wentz logged 306 yards, two TDs and a pick, and Josh Adams led the rush on 85 yards. Golden Tate also had 85 yards receiving to lead the Eagles, alongside a TD on seven catches. 

Over on the Cowboys’ side, they’re currently 7-5 on the season. Dallas is rolling right now with four straight wins over the Eagles, Falcons, Redskins and Saints. 

In the 13-10 upset victory over New Orleans, Cowboys QB Dak Prescott logged 248 yards and a TD, while Ezekiel Elliott put up 76 yards on the ground. Michael Gallup was the lead receiver for Dallas in that one with 76 yards on five catches. 

The Eagles are 5-2 ATS in their last seven in Week 14 and the over is 20-6 in their last 26 road games. The over is 12-4 in Philly’s last 16 on turf and the under is 5-1 in their last six when playing on Sunday after a Monday game. 

Meanwhile, Dallas is 4-0 ATS in their last four overall and 4-0 ATS in their last four versus the NFC. The Cowboys are 4-1 ATS in their last five after an ATS win and 6-1 ATS in their last seven versus the NFC East. 

This is going to be a must-see game as Dallas fights to assert their dominance in the NFC East. The last time these two squads met was a 27-20 Cowboys victory, and I expect this one to be pretty close as well with a confident Philly team coming in on a short week. Still, I’m on the Dallas bandwagon and going that route.

Pick:
Dallas Cowboys -3.5
