In Week 6, the Dallas Cowboys wound up pulling off a much-needed win over the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday Night Football. Even with several miscues that could have cost them, they found a way to improve to 4-2 thanks to a late field goal from Brandon Aubrey and an interception by Stephon Gilmore.
They headed to the bye week after that win as they look to regroup and fine tune their offense before hosting the L.A. Rams in Week 8. Here, we look ahead to that game as well as the rest remaining on their schedule with a post-bye game-by-game prediction.
Week 8 Dallas Cowboys vs. Los Angeles Rams
They were in Los Angeles before the bye and after, they will host the other franchise from the City of Angels. The Rams were Super Bowl winners following the 2021 season but haven't been the same since. Dallas beat them with Cooper Rush last year and while the Rams are improved from the team we saw then, they're still not going to be able to handle the Cowboys defense — especially if Micah Parsons continues to play with the fire he's shown so far this year.
Prediction: Cowboys 24, Rams 17
Week 9 Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles
At 5-2, the Cowboys face the Philadelphia Eagles for the first time as they head to the City of Brotherly Love. Dallas often struggles with the Eagles and this prediction has them dropping a game by more than one score. They have the talent to beat Philly but their offense is still a work in progress and traveling to a hostile crowd impacts them.
Prediction: Eagles 28, Cowboys 16
