A pivotal NFC East showdown is set to take place on Sunday Night Football. With a win, the Dallas Cowboys can sport the same record as the Philadelphia Eagles atop the division.
Not only do I think the Cowboys are going to win this game, but in this article I'm going to attempt to do the improbable and predict the correct exact final score for the game.
Let's take a look at the odds for the marquee matchup and then I'll break down my prediction.
Eagles vs. Cowboys odds, spread, and total
Cowboys final score prediction
The Eagles have a ton of issues, especially on defense. The Cowboys offense should be able to do what it wants from start to finish.
Let's also remember that despite losing to the Cowboys earlier this season, they out-gained them in that meeting 5.8 yards per play to 4.9 yards per play. Now, with the game being played on the Cowboys' home field, they should be in a great position to even things up.
Based on the Eagles' defensive woes, I think the Cowboys are going to win and it'll be a high-scoring affair. The Eagles' offense also has a path to moving the ball at times to. If they keep the ball on the ground, they could exploit the weakness of the Dallas defense, which is its ability to stop the run.
Cowboys win this one in a shootout.
Final score prediction: Eagles 24, Cowboys 31
