Featured Game | Philadelphia Eagles vs. Dallas Cowboys
Why the Eagles can cover
Quarterback Jalen Hurts is a dual-threat. He has completed 108 of 159 passes (67.9%) for 1,359 yards and four touchdowns with two interceptions and a rating of 97.4. He is also Philadelphia’s second-leading rusher. He has carried 68 times for 266 yards (3.9 average) and six touchdowns. He has also rushed for 57 or more yards in three games.
Running back Miles Sanders is the pace-setter in the Eagles’ ground attack. Sanders has 85 or more yards from scrimmage in four of his past five games at home. He had 156 scrimmage yards (79 rushing, 77 receiving) and a rushing touchdown in his only career home game against the Cowboys. Sanders will be looking for his fourth game in a row versus Dallas with 50 or more yards from scrimmage. For the season, he has carried 87 times for 414 yards (4.8 average) and three touchdowns.
Why the Cowboys can cover
Despite that, the Eagles are not a lock to cover the Cowboys vs. Eagles spread. That’s because Dallas backup quarterback Cooper Rush has proven to be capable. He became just the fifth undrafted QB to win each of his first five career starts in the Super Bowl era. He has six touchdowns with just one interception for a 95.8 rating in those starts.
Running back Ezekiel Elliott will try for his fourth game in a row with 75 or more yards from scrimmage. He has dominated the Eagles and has 1,317 scrimmage yards (131.7 per game) and five touchdowns, including four rushing, in 10 career games versus Philadelphia. Since 2016, he leads the NFL in rushing yards (7,691) and is tied for second in rushing TDs (57). In five games this season, Elliott has carried 81 times for 305 yards (3.8 average) and one touchdown.
