Eagles vs Cowboys : A pivotal matchup in the wide-open NFC East takes place on Sunday Night Football at 8:20 p.m. ET when the Dallas Cowboys take on the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. The defending Super Bowl champion Eagles (4-4) could tie for first place in the division with a win on Sunday combined with a loss by the Redskins.
Meanwhile, the Cowboys (3-5) are looking to snap a two-game losing streak and could move within a game of the division lead with an upset of Philadelphia. The Eagles are 7.5-point favorites and the over-under for total points scored is 44 in the latest Cowboys vs. Eagles odds. Before you make any Cowboys vs. Eagles picks, you need to hear what SportsLine’s Mike Tierney has to say. To put the “Super Bowl hangover” behind them. To turn the page on a sluggish start to the 2018 NFL season.
The Eagles really couldn’t have asked for a better way to kick off the second half of their schedule. Coming off their bye to play the 3-5 Dallas Cowboys on a short week.
It just feels like this should be the Eagles’ night. They have the rest advantage. They have the home field advantage. They have the head coach and quarterback advantage. They have the Golden Tate advantage. They have the “the rest of the NFC East isn’t good and the division is open for the taking” advantage.
If the Eagles are going to make a second half run, it needs to start tonight. And the feeling here is that it will. The Eagles just match up too well against this Cowboys team.
That’s not to say the Eagles don’t have their flaws. The way they’ve blown games makes them hard to trust.
But I just can’t shake the feeling the Eagles are due for a blowout win. They’re the better side and they’ll prove it tonight.
Carson Wentz is 7-0 in his last seven games against NFC East opponents. This is a spot where he’s coming to come up big and make it 8-0.
