1. Cowboys vs Eagles, Week 16
The biggest game left for the Cowboys will be the rematch against the Eagles in Week 16. Will Philadelphia still be undefeated? Will Dallas still be within striking distance of the NFC East?
Either way, this divisional matchup will be a big one for Dallas to win. With Prescott back for this matchup, the Cowboys will hopefully be at full strength. They lost to the Eagles earlier this season 26-17 when Rush was under center.
The Eagles dominated at the start after jumping out to an early 20-0 lead late in the second quarter. But, the Cowboys soon scored 17 unanswered points before Philadelphia secured a game-sealing touchdown in the fourth.
This game in Week 16 will be substantial for Dallas right before the playoffs. It can surely give them a major confidence boost heading into the postseason. It can also, depending on the standings seven weeks from now, be a game that determines the NFC East.
But can the Cowboys hang with and beat the top team in the NFC? A big test and a big game for Dallas towards the end of the season to answer that question. The Cowboys also haven’t been swept by the Eagles in a single season since 2011.
