Cowboys vs Eagles : How do they stack up?

The Philadelphia Eagles are 7-1 through their opening eight games, but it hasn’t all been Sunshine and Rainbows. Injuries have haunted the defense while Brian Johnson’s offense has struggled to kick into gear at times. The team almost dropped a game to the underwhelming Washington Commanders last time out, but Jalen Hurts put up 319 yards and 4 touchdowns in what was his best game of the season to guide them to a much-needed win.

As for the Cowboys, they too have been underwhelming at times. Like the Eagles QB, Dak Prescott rallied his team to a win last time out with 4 touchdown passes and 304 yards against the Rams. Both of these offenses have star receivers, a dominant run-game, and a great offensive line. If quarterback is going to be the difference, they’re both coming off of big games and will be feeling confident.

A trend to note:

The Eagles have won only one game against the Cowboys since 2020 and are 6-9 against them since 2015. This roster is good enough and deep enough to change that, but it comes at a time of necessity.

This feels like a game where either team could break out, but the most likely candidate is a Philadelphia team, playing at home, with a roster that’s finally beginning to click into gear.

Cowboys vs Eagles: Players to build prop bets around

A.J Brown

Is there really any other place worth looking? The former Titans wideout broke an NFL record by recording 6 consecutive games with 125+ receiving yards. This might lead to an inflated total, and the Cowboys defense ranks 4th in the NFL against the pass. This might be a good time to bet the under, knowing that a ‘quiet’ day for A.J Brown is now 80+ yards…

However, it might also provide an opportunity to go contrarian. Brown has defied every expectation this season and who’s to say he isn’t going to deny another after humbling the Commanders defense one week ago?

CeeDee Lamb

Dallas might have bid goodbye to Amari Cooper, but CeeDee Lamb has more than stepped up to the plate over the last season or so. He’s been challenging A.J Brown’s kind of production over the last two weeks as well, registering 275 yards in that span along with a pair of touchdowns.

The Eagles’ pass defense has been leaky all season and it has given up the 2nd most touchdowns to WR’s of ANY unit in the league, as well as ranking 26th against the pass.

D’Andre Swift

D’Andre Swift’s early-season breakout was a joy to watch, but things coincidentally slowed when Cam Jurgens left the lineup. The young guard could be primed to make his return on Sunday which could mean huge things for Swift’s production.

Royce Freeman averaged 4.9 yards per carry against Dallas last week and there’s no reason why Swift can’t hit that same mark.

Cowboys vs Eagles betting pick

The Eagles have a bye next week before the real fun begins. They won’t take this game lightly as a result and will want to go into it with a full head of steam. I expect Philadelphia to come out swinging offensively and push Dak Prescott into playing from behind, taking away the run in the process.

This should be a controlled effort by Philadelphia, who should comfortably win by more than a field goal.
