Cowboys and Eagles fight for the top of the NFC East division as they meet this Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field, in what should be a shootout in the NFL week 7.
Both franchises are 3-3 and have looked a lot better than expected over the last two weeks. The NFL odds have the Eagles as 3 point favorites, and the game total is 55 points.
Philadelphia will go with Nick Foles as their starting QB for the second game in a row. He has thrown 542 yards, 6 TDs and 0 interceptions over the last game and a half (played half a game against the Giants two weeks ago).
“I feel really comfortable here. I feel comfortable with our personnel, our plays, everything,” Foles said. “It helps when you have a great relationship with the players, the coaches, and when you go into the game you’re all on the same page. … Everybody stuck together, and it was another team win.”
The Cowboys beat the Redskins 31-16 last week and will have to overcome some injuries to face the Eagles. RB DeMarco Murray is questionable, and LB DeMarcus Ware is a game time decision.
“We have to be able to run the football well when DeMarco Murray is not our runner,” Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said.
Philadelphia is 3-6 SU in its last 9 games when playing Dallas, but the Cowboys are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games when playing the Eagles.
Both teams have top 5 scoring offenses entering this week, but I’d stick with the under.
