Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys Betting Preview – Week 7
First place in the NFC East is on the line when the Philadelphia Eagles visit the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football.
The Dallas Cowboys will host the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football in what should be a terrific game. Both teams come into this game with a record of 3-3, as they are currently tied atop the NFC East standings.
Dallas has lost three straight games after blowing out its first three opponents of the season. Philadelphia suffered a blowout loss in Week 6 but had won two straight games prior to that loss.
BetAnySports has the Dallas Cowboys as 2.5-point favorites over the Philadelphia Eagles in this game.
Eagles at Cowboys Overview
The Dallas Cowboys have a very balanced offensive attack, but they must find a way to score more touchdowns in the red zone. Running back Ezekiel Elliott has run for 491 yards so far this season, and will likely see plenty of action in this game.
Quarterback Dak Prescott has thrown for 1,884 yards this season, but his five interceptions have been costly to the Cowboys.
Dallas has the much better defensive unit, and they are going to need to find a way to contain Carson Wentz in this game. The Cowboys have allowed just 19.0 points per game, but they were torched by the winless Jets a week ago.
Philadelphia has not been a good defensive team this season, and that could be a huge problem against the Cowboys. The Eagles are giving up 25 points per game this season and allowed 38 points to the Minnesota Vikings a week ago.
This team has been solid against the run this season, which could help to contain Elliott. Philadelphia has had to deal with a ton of injuries already this season, especially at the wide receiver position.
Quarterback Carson Wentz has still thrown 12 touchdown passes, but he needs a running game to help him out in this one. The Eagles are running for over 111 yards per game, and that could help out a ton in this one.
