The reeling Dallas Cowboys try to save their season when they visit the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football.

 

Dallas Cowboys
The Tennessee Titans spoiled Amari Cooper's debut with a 28-14 win against the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night. Dallas looked headed for a blowout win but led just 7-0 after Marcus Mariota's early miscues because Brett Maher missed a 38-yard field goal on the opening possession and Dak Prescott's ill-advised throw into double coverage. The Cowboys had just 108 total yards in the second half, most of those on a desperation drive down two scores late in the fourth quarter. Dak Prescott completed 21 of 31 passes for 243 yards, two touchdowns, one interception and a lost fumble, Ezekiel Elliott ran for 61 yards on 17 carries and Amari Cooper caught five passes for 58 receiving yards and one touchdown.

The Cowboys are averaging 188.4 passing yards (29th in the NFL) and 128.8 rushing yards (6th). Dallas ranks 26th with 19.3 points per game and 3rd with 18.9 points against. Dak Prescott has passed for 1,660 yards, 10 touchdowns and five interceptions, Ezekiel Elliott has 680 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 149 carries and Cole Beasley has 36 receptions for 366 yards and two touchdowns. Jaylon Smith has 66 tackles and DeMarcus Lawrence has 6.5 sacks.

 

Philadelphia Eagles
The Philadelphia Eagles held onto a 24-18 win at Wembley Stadium on October 28 after the Jacksonville Jaguars were held to a field goal twice in the fourth quarter and failed to convert on fourth down with 3:41 to play. The Eagles finished with 395 total yards, their third-highest total of the season and they converted 7 of 12 third down opportunities. Carson Wentz completed 21 of 30 passes for 286 yards, three touchdowns and one interception, Josh Adams ran for 61 yards on nine carries and Jordan Matthews made four receptions for 93 yards.

The Eagles are averaging 260.3 passing yards (14th in the NFL) and 106.6 rushing yards (18th). Philadelphia ranks 21st with 22.3 points per game and 5th with 19.5 points against. Carson Wentz has passed for 1,788 yards, 13 touchdowns and two interceptions, Wendell Smallwood has 257 rushing yards and one touchdown on 60 carries and Zach Ertz has 61 receptions for 644 yards and three touchdowns. Jordan Hicks has 71 tackles and Fletcher Cox has four sacks.

 

NFL Trends:

The Dallas Cowboys are:

1-4 ATS in their last five games against NFC opponents

0-4 ATS in their last four games when playing on Sunday following a Monday night game

The Philadelphia Eagles are:

8-3 ATS in their last 11 games after accumulating more than 350 total yards in their previous game

10-4 ATS in their last 14 games following an ATS win

The Eagles had an extra week to prepare for this game and they're allowing just 17.3 points in their last three games. The Cowboys have some weapons on offense but their entire coaching staff is awful. Philadelphia will be rested, they're coming into their own offensively and they're simply the better team. Adding Golden Tate was a brilliant move by the Eagles and he can make an impact right away, he caught eight passes for 132 receiving yards and two touchdowns against the Cowboys when he was with the Lions in Week 4 and he can have another big game here.
