It’s Dallas week.
Head coach Nick Sirianni’s first taste of the Eagles-Cowboys rivalry will come under the bright lights of Monday Night Football in Dallas’ home opener.
Both teams enter the matchup at 1-1, currently tied atop the NFC East division with the Washington Football Team. Washington faces the Buffalo Bills on Sunday afternoon.
The Cowboys are coming off their first win of the season, beating the Los Angeles Chargers 20-17 on a 56-yard field goal from Greg Zuerlein as time expired.
Eagles vs. Cowboys Moneyline, Spread and Total
Line: Cowboys -4
Eagles team total O/U: 23.5
Cowboys team total O/U: 27.5
Moneyline: Eagles +170, Cowboys -200
The Eagles, who have lost in their last three trips to Dallas, opened as a four-point underdog for this NFC East showdown. Philadelphia was also an underdog in each of its first two games this season.
Each team will be down a star defensive end in this matchup. DeMarcus Lawrence fractured his foot in practice last week and is expected to be sidelined for several weeks. Meanwhile, Brandon Graham suffered a season-ending torn Achilles against San Francisco.
The Birds and Cowboys split their two meetings last year. Carson Wentz and the Eagles won 23-9 in Week 8 at the Linc with Ben DiNucci playing quarterback for the Cowboys. Then in Week 16, Andy Dalton led Dallas past Jalen Hurts and Co., 37-17. So this will be the first head-to-head meeting between Hurts and Dak Prescott.
Prescott missed the final 11 games of 2020 due to a gruesome ankle injury. After putting up big numbers in his Week 1 return, Prescott went 23 of 27 for 237 yards, no touchdowns and one interception against L.A. The sixth-year pro is 5-3 in his career against the Eagles.
