Philadelphia Eagles vs Dallas Cowboys

Where: AT&T Stadium

When: Sunday, October 20, 2019, 8:20 pm ET

We have a National Football Conference East divisional battle to discuss for Sunday night when the Philadelphia Eagles head to Texas and a matchup with the Dallas Cowboys. Sunday marks the 116th meeting between the two franchises with the Cowboys holding a 65-51 edge in their historical series.

The Eagles are 3-3 this season and enter this game coming off a 38-20 road loss to the Minnesota Vikings. The Cowboys are also 3-3 this season and lost to the New York Jets in New Jersey by a score of 24-22.

Eagles Lose to Minnesota

Philadelphia saw their two-game winning streak snapped in a week six road loss to the Minnesota Vikings by a score of 38-20. Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz threw for 302 yards, two touchdowns but was picked off once and running back Miles Sanders had three receptions for 86 yards and a touchdown in a losing cause for the Eagles.

Dallas allows 331.8 yards per game on 93.8 rushing yards and 238 passing yards with 14 sacks and two interceptions this season.

Wentz is the key to the Eagles offense and has thrown for 1458 yards with 12 touchdowns, three interceptions and has suffered 10 sacks this season. Wentz has rushed for an additional 82 yards and a touchdown and hopefully, for Philly, the offensive line can protect him against a strong Cowboys pass rush with a dozen sacks to its credit this season.

Tight end Zack Ertz leads Eagles receivers in targets (54), receiving yards (366) and has five plays of over 20 yards. Wide receiver Nelson Agholor has 230 receiving yards with three touchdowns and wide receiver Alshon Jeffery has 215 receiving yards and three touchdowns and these three are the key to the Eagles passing game and getting them going is imperative if Philadelphia wants to win this football game.

Wide receiver Desean Jackson is listed as day to day and has 154 receiving yards and two touchdowns over his first two games and hasn’t played since.

It's going to be difficult for Philadelphia to run the football Sunday night but they will need to and the number they usually call is Jordan Howard’s. Howard has rushed for 297 yards and four touchdowns with an additional 47 receiving yards and one touchdown. Running back Miles Sanders has rushed for 199 yards with an additional 219 receiving yards and a touchdown this season. Running back Darren Sproles has 59 rushing yards with an additional 21 receiving yards and is questionable for Sunday and didn’t practice on Wednesday.

Banged Up Cowboys Three Game Losing Streak

Dallas has lost three consecutive games and suffered a week six road loss to the New York Jets by a score of 24-22. Quarterback Dak Prescott threw for 278 passing yards and running back Ezekiel Elliot rushed for 105 yards and a touchdown in a losing cause for the Cowboys. The loss left Dallas at 3-3 and tied with the Eagle for first place in the NFC East, making their week seven game with the Eagles a “must-win” game for them.

Philadelphia allows 353 total yards of offense per game with 72.8 rushing yards and 280 passing yards allowed per game. The Eagles have 14 sacks and seven interceptions this season.

The Eagles can be beaten via the air and Prescott is the key to this; Prescott has thrown for 1884 yards, 11 touchdowns and has tossed six interceptions this season. Prescott has rushed for an additional 133 yards and a pair of touchdowns and has suffered seven sacks this season.

The Cowboys receiving corps is banged up and their three most prominent receivers are all listed as questionable for Sunday. Wide receiver Amari Cooper has 515 receiving yards and five touchdowns and missed Wednesday’s practice. Wide receiver Michael Gallup has 387 receiving yards and a score and was a limited participant on Wednesday and wide receiver Randall Cobb has 210 receiving yards and a touchdown and missed Wednesday’s practice.

Tight end Jason Witten seems to be the only pass catcher fully healthy and he’s grabbed 22 balls for 230 receiving yards and two touchdowns with eight plays of over 20 yards this season. Tight end Blake Jarwin has 119 receiving yards and one touchdown this season with three plays of over 20 yards this season.

The Eagles are difficult to run the ball against and the Cowboys will counter with one of the best when Ezekiel Elliot takes the ball. Elliott has rushed for 491 yards and five touchdowns with an additional 139 receiving yards this season. Running back Ezekiel Elliot0 has 181 rushing yards and a touchdown with an additional 28 receiving yards for Dallas this season.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

This is a tough one as we don't know who from Dallas is going to play but what we do know is Prescott and Elliot will play and those two can do damage. We also know the favorite in this matchup is 6-1 ATS and that gives us something to hang our hat on.

Philadelphia couldn't contain Stefon Diggs last week and they won't be able to contain whoever hits the field for Dallas, Witten becomes a key here as does Pollard and that might just be enough to get the job done.

Wentz is going to have a difficult time against the Cowboys defense and while he may have success at times, the Cowboys will frustrate him with a solid rush and maybe force him to make bad throws.

I will lay the wood and play the Cowboys to defeat the Eagles in this matchup.

Prediction: Cowboys -3 Points

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

I don't see more than 49 points scored in this matchup and I would be very surprised if the two sides combine for more than 40 points. The Cowboys offense is banged up and the Eagles haven't played well enough on the road this season to inspire much confidence and without Jackson, they become a less dynamic offense. The Cowboys will likely run Elliot and Pollard and eat the clock and that will surely limit the points scored in this matchup.

I like the UNDER in this game.

Prediction: Under 49 points
