This should be a very good game between two NFC East rivals. Dallas is most likely going to start Cooper Rush at quarterback, but Dak Prescott has not been ruled out yet. Philadelphia remains undefeated this season and will be at home. Dallas has been playing very well with Rush at quarterback and has scored at least 20 points in four straight games. I am taking Dallas with the points here.
