The Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys meet Sunday in NFL action at AT&T Stadium.
The Philadelphia Eagles look for a big road victory to get a game above a .500 record. The Philadelphia Eagles have split their last eight road games. Carson Wentz is completing 61.2 percent of his passes for 1,458 yards, 12 touchdowns and three interceptions. Wentz has two or more touchdown passes in 12 of his last 16 games. Zach Ertz and Nelson Agholor have combined for 596 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Miles Sanders has 13 receptions. The Philadelphia Eagles ground game is averaging 111.2 yards per contest, and Josh Howard leads the way with 297 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Philadelphia is allowing 24.8 points and 353 yards per game. Rodney McLeod leads the Philadelphia Eagles with 35 tackles, Brandon Graham has four sacks and Nathan Gerry has two interceptions.
The Dallas Cowboys need a victory here to snap a three-game losing streak. The Dallas Cowboys have won six of their last seven home games. Dak Prescott is completing 69.7 percent of his passes for 1,883 yards, 11 touchdowns and six interceptions. Prescott has three or more touchdown passes in four of his last 10 games. Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup have combined for 902 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Jason Witten has 22 receptions. The Dallas Cowboys ground game is averaging 138.8 yards per contest, and Ezekiel Elliott leads the way with 491 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively, Dallas is allowing 19 points and 331.8 yards per game. Leighton Vander Esch leads the Dallas Cowboys with 51 tackles, Robert Quinn has five sacks and Chidobe Awuzie has one interception.
The Eagles are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games in October, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. NFC. The Cowboys are 10-1 ATS in their last 11 vs. NFC East and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games in Week 7. The road team is 11-4 ATS in their last 15 meetings and the favorite is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 meetings. The over is 7-2 in Cowboys last 9 games overall. The over is 24-10 in Eagles last 34 road games.
The Philadelphia Eagles have covered six of their last nine games as a road underdog. The Dallas Cowboys are 5-5-1 ATS in their last 11 games as a home favorite. The Eagles didn't look good last week against Minnesota, and they're a team I continue to have questions about, as I don't think the defense is as good as people think and I still don't trust Wentz on the road. The Dallas Cowboys haven't won a game since Prescott told his teammates he was going to get spicy nuggets after the game, and while that's concerning, this team usually is good at home and could possibly return some key pieces along their offensive line. The Cowboys have won nine of the last 14 meetings against the Eagles. I'll lay the small chalk with the Cowboys at home.
