The Philadelphia Eagles just got handed their second loss of the season in embarrassing fashion. They can't afford to stew over the defeat at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers, however, with another No. 1 seed hopeful in the Dallas Cowboys on tap next.
In a matchup between two fierce division rivals, oddsmakers are expecting plenty of offensive fireworks.
Week 14 Eagles vs Cowboys Odds
DraftKings Sportsbook is listing the Eagles as 3-point underdogs on the spread and +142 on the moneyline for this Sunday Night Football Showdown. Meanwhile, the total is set at 52.2, which is the highest of the entire Week 14 slate.
While Eagles fans would like to see Philadelphia favored, it's worth mentioning home-field advantage if often good for 2.5-3 points. So this line essentially sees this a toss-up if it were played on a neutral field, instead of at Jerry World.
Regardless, Nick Sirianni's team hasn't done enough recently to deserve even being a pick 'em on the road. Their defensive struggles and offensive inefficiency -- which have been problems all season -- finally caught up to them versus a contender, leading to an embarrassing loss against San Fran.
That makes this the perfect opportunity for the Eagles to show this past week was just a fluke. Dallas is rolling and now sits at 9-3, putting them squarely in the conversation for the NFC's top seed. Handing the Cowboys a loss in convincing fashion would not only boost Philly's confidence down the stretch, but also hurt Dallas' playoff aspirations in the process.
Philadelphia has been punched in the face, and now it's time to punch back against a team they already took down once this season.
