Dallas Cowboys vs Philadelphia Eagles Preview
NFL week 17, the Dallas Cowboys will play host to another NFC East division rival, the Philadelphia Eagles. Both the Cowboys & Eagles are playing their best football of the season right now. The Philadelphia Eagles have won 6 straight and clinched a playoff berth. The Dallas Cowboys have won 2 straight and clinched their playoff berth, first the boys beat the Saints when no one gave ‘em a chance and last week they shut out the Redskins. The winner of this weeks game will clinch the NFC East Division. Let’s compare the teams and see how they matchup on paper.
Week 9 – Cowboys 20 @ Eagles 16
Week 2 – Cowboys 41 vs Eagles 37
Week 17 – Cowboys 6 @ Philadelphia 44
Advantage: Cowboys, the boys are 2 and 1 in the last 3 meetings and are playing at Cowboys Stadium.
Cowboys: 14th – 22.5 points per game
Eagles: 3rd – 28.6 points per game
The Eagles score on average 6-7 points more per game, but the do not have a strong rushing attack. However they use lots of screen passes and other short passing plays to make up for this.
Cowboys: 3rd – 16.7 points per game
Eagles: 16th – 20.9 points per game
Advantage: The Cowboys hold the defensive advantage statistically, and the Dallas defense has played its best the last two games, and I expect this to continue against the Eagles.
Prediction: Cowboys 24 Eagles 17
The Cowboys Defense is playing as good as I have seen in the past 10 years and they are at home. Plus they now have a kicker in Suisham that makes more than he misses.
