3. Dallas Cowboys vs. Philadelphia Eagles (Monday Night Football)

Dallas’ first division primetime game is next on this list. Although the Eagles are considered the worst team in the division, this matchup will probably still be a good one.

Last season, the Cowboys split the season series with them. However, Prescott didn’t play in either one of those games. Playing a division rival is never an easy win, no matter what teams are involved.

This will also be the first matchup between Dak Prescott and quarterback Jalen Hurts. Dating back to 2016 (Prescott’s first year), Prescott is 5-2 against Philadelphia.

Additionally, Dallas saw Hurts once last season. The former Oklahoma star totaled 342 passing yards, 69 rushing yards, one passing touchdown, and two interceptions against the Cowboys in week 16. With the Cowboys going head to head with the Eagles on primetime, this game is probably bound to be a good one.
