Head-to-Head: Philadelphia Eagles vs Dallas Cowboys
The Eagles and Cowboys have faced off twice per season for years, as division rivals do, providing us with a large sample size of meetings to analyze. Two of the last three meetings have gone in the Eagles’ favor, but none were decided by more than 9 points. Preceding that, the Cowboys ripped off three straight wins over the Eagles by no fewer than 20 points. Altogether, the Cowboys are 6-4 in the last ten meetings, all of in which the winner covered the spread. The closest of these meetings was in October this season, when the Eagles won 28-23.
While they stand alone at the top of the NFL standings at 10-2, the Eagles are coming off a blowout 19-42 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. They’ve looked less than dominant to this point, with only two multiple-score victories on their record and two instances where they’ve needed an OT field goal to put away an opponent at home. Whether the recent signing of linebacker Shaquille Leonard can boost the team’s ailing defense – if Leonard is ready to play – will be a major story heading into this game.
Dallas has a blowout loss to the 49ers of their own on their record, but they’re 4-0 since they last played Philadelphia. They’ve scored 40-plus points in three of those wins while only allowing over 17 points in one of them, adding up to a total score of 168-72 – put another way, they won each game by an average of 24 points. Overall, the Cowboys lead the league in scoring offense with 32.3 points per game, have pulled out seven of their nine wins by multiple-score margins, and have yet to lose a game at home.
Including his earlier meeting with the Eagles, Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has thrown 1,597 yards, 16 touchdowns, and one interception in his last five games.

Philadelphia Eagles vs Dallas Cowboys Predictions
For a team that’s less than two months removed from their last win against the Cowboys, it’s hard to confidently envision this Eagles squad beating the Cowboys. Their defense looms as an eminently movable object in the path of Dallas’ surging offense, and the Cowboys' defense ranks near the top of the league in yards and points allowed as well. Dallas is coming off a 41-35 back-and-forth home win against the Seattle Seahawks, so it’s plenty conceivable that this one follows a similar script, but their second-closest home win was decided by 20 points.
Anything is possible in the NFL and no bets are truly safe, but a lot is pointing to the Cowboys and the points in this one.
Prediction: Dallas Cowboys -3.5
