This game has to be a close one, surely?

The Cowboys D is playing great, but I'm waiting for game that humbles them a little. Humbles is a bad description, highlights the fine line between a good/v good D and an OK D is probably better. A long drive here, a 3rd down conversion there, and suddenly you're on the back foot. Tbh, my concern probably has more to do with not trusting our offence.

No doubt Eagles fans have their own concerns too.

Seeing as this is the NFC East.......

Cowboys 17 23 Eagles

This will be pretty close. I'll take my lot in a close one, though I wouldn't be surprised if the Eagles took this one.

If our offense can get Tate and other non-Ertz targets involved the way they did last week, we have a chance. Both lines need to have a monster game as well.

Think it will be Dallas by 10 points, they're a lot better at home than away. But we're coming off our best game of the season so let's hope we can keep that going.

Wonder if the Cowboys use Jeff Heath and LVE to neutralise Ertz, or at least try to? LVE should match up quite well with Ertz as far as LB's are concerned.

Virtually a Playoff game for the Eagles, who would need a major capitulation from Dallas if they lose this. The trade for Amari Cooper may have been a pricey one for the Cowboys, but he’s made a huge difference to their Offense. Their Defense has also gone from strength to strength, and the Eagles will likely have a hard time moving the ball on them tonight.

The Eagles have done well to claw their way back into contention after being routed by the Saints, but I think they will fall just short here.

The change in OL coach might have had an impact too. Marc Colombo (and Hudson Houck) might not have a flawless coaching system, but I think the change might have brought about a psychological 'reset' for the line. Plus they brought in Xavier Su'a-Filo when Connor Williams got injured, he might be having a Ron Leary type effect for the run game too.

All in all the offence has become more settled...... but I still don't trust Dak/Linehan Tbh.

they will and should still win but its nice to get an excuse in early just in case, otherwise maybe people would start talk up of a tickle in the Cowboys throat


cos even if they lose they will still be favourites to win the East.

'they will and should still win'......

What would it take to give the defending SB champs a chance in this one? I mean we've got the refs in our pocket too I guess, so no matter what we' ve already won.

Seriously though, if they are under the weather then the 2nd half won't be pretty.
