NFC East winner will be settled this Sunday after the Philadelphia Eagles vs. Dallas Cowboys duel. The match will be played at Lincoln Financial Field. This match-up is, without a doubt, the biggest game of this weekend.
If Cowboys win, they will win the division and secure home-field advantage in the first round of playoffs. Even if they lose, they can still make it to the postseason. All that needs to happen in that scenario is that Eagles lose to Giants in the last week of the season and that Dallas beats Redskins.
Even with Dak Prescott’s injury looming over Cowboys, they are still the favorites this Sunday. At AT&T Stadium, they won 37-10 against the Eagles earlier this year. That game can be pivotal for the winner of the NFC East. In recent years Cowboys played reasonably well in divisional games. They are 16-5 in the last 21 games among divisional rivals. At the same time, Philly is only 4-12 in the previous 16. It’s no wonder they are entering this game as underdogs. But that’s the way they love it.
Philadelphia Eagles vs. Dallas Cowboys Predictions
In recent weeks The Boys weren’t as good as expected. Luckily they changed gears at the right time, which resulted in 44-21 win against Los Angeles Rams. This win ended their three-game losing streak. They also managed to score points. Their average in those three games was 16 points per match. Ezekiel Elliot was the star of the night with two touchdowns and 117 rushing yards on 24 carries. This game was a good introduction before Eagles’ game. Zeke loves splaying against them. Earlier this year, he had 111 yards and a score with 36 receiving yards.
On the other side, Philadelphia will look to close out the season with two sins and take the division home over their bitter rivals. The first thing Eagles need to do is not to turn the ball over. They did it four ties in week seven vs. Cowboys. What’s interesting is that they turn the ball much more in their defeats. Because of this, it’s essential to keep the ball if they want to win.
Another factor that could play a factor in deciding the winner in this duel are injuries. Dak Prescott had shoulder issues, but he’s clear to go. Eagles, on the other hand, have problems with their WR corps. Nelson Agholor will miss the match after suffering injury in recent days. Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson are absent for some tie now.
With all said above, we assume that Dallas Cowboys are going to win this match. Dallas Cowboys 34- Philadelphia Eagles 20.
