Week 14: Eagles @ Cowboys - Dec. 10th
Just before heading into their bye week, the Eagles hosted the Dallas Cowboys. The second-place team in the NFC East, Dallas was always going to be the toughest challenger to take the division title away. They also came into Philly and gave the home team everything they could handle.
The Eagles wound up with a narrow win but for a few minutes, it appeared as though the defense would give up a final touchdown, which would have been the nail in the coffin. Instead, the Cowboys committed a couple of costly penalties and then allowed Dak Prescott to be sacked as soon as he snapped the ball once they were in the red zone.
When they do meet again in Week 14, expect the Cowboys to come out with more fire than they showed early on in Week 9. They now see that they can match up with Philly and know that they would have stolen a win on the road with better play from their offensive line.
In this prediction, that leads to them getting a win at home as they tighten up the race in the East. The good news for the Eagles is that their schedule gets much easier after this with only one more game against a team with a winning record remaining.
Score Prediction: Cowboys 31, Eagles 23
