The Dallas Cowboys’ Edge Vs. The Eagles
Dallas is a bipolar team. They can give us some great games and some others that are embarrassing. The last image we saw of them was perhaps the best of the season. But the question is: is it sustainable?
Dallas destroyed the LA Rams 44-21 last week in a game that was pretty much over by the second quarter. The key of the win was the running game, which recorded 263 rushing yards in the afternoon.
Tony Pollard led the way with 131 rushing yards and one touchdown, followed by Ezekiel Elliott with 117 yards and two scores.
When the Cowboys establish the run, everything becomes simpler for the offense. When they can’t put together a good running game, then the rest of the unit doesn’t look as sharp.
The Philadelphia Eagles’ Edge Vs. The Cowboys
The Philadelphia Eagles have won two games in a row to give themselves a chance to be in this position. Their season has been up and down, but they are one game away from getting into the playoffs.
A lot of their success is thanks to QB Carson Wentz, who has been trying to play his best without many weapons at his disposal. He has thrown five touchdowns without interceptions in the last two games.
Granted, the wins were against Redskins and Giants, but the Eagles are so banged-up that no opponent is an easy task.
The Eagles need to stop Dallas’s run game first and then force QB Dak Prescott to throw the ball down the field. Prescott is dealing with a shoulder injury, and for the first time on his career, he has been limited in practice.
Dallas Cowboys At Philadelphia Eagles NFL Week 16 Prediction
The Eagles are missing WR Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson for the rest of the season. Nelson Agholor is questionable due to a knee injury, and he hasn’t practiced this week.
RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) has been limited in practice this season. OT Lane Johnson and DE Fletcher Cox are questionable but should be ready to go.
The list of injuries for the Eagles is too long to think they can beat Dallas in this crucial game. Wentz has limited options on offense, and the defense is not good enough to hold the Cowboys off the end zone.
If Jason Garrett can’t outcoach Doug Pederson with all the Philly injuries and take the division title, then, he should be fired on the spot. Bet Cowboys -2.
