Hey look, it's the 4-2 Philadelphia Eagles vs. the 5-1 Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. No big deal.
Even though they have the second best point differential in the NFL at +68 with impressive wins over the Pittsburgh Steelers and Minnesota Vikings, the Eagles are 4.5-point underdogs.
Three Eagles players appear on the injury report this week, most notably Bennie Logan, who is arguably the Eagles' best run stopper. The Cowboys have 12 players on their injury report, in addition to a slew of players who have been placed on IR or the suspension list. You can find the updated injury report here.
The Cowboys' run game is outstanding, as they lead the NFL in most rushing statistical categories. Defensively, they struggle to get to the quarterback. Here are our five matchups to watch.
For the second straight week, there is dissension among our staff of writers. Personally speaking, I've picked each of the last four Eagles games incorrectly. This week I picked the Cowboys. Here are our staff writer Eagles-Cowboys picks.
