Week 8 Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles

The biggest question mark is what Dallas is going to get when they play the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. Philadelphia has gotten off to a bad start losing to Washington and the LA Rams. A tie last week against Cincinnati has sent the city to chaos.

Carson Wentz appears to be off his game throwing six interceptions in three games. Wentz appears to be missing passes and playing too much hero ball that has put the Eagles’ defense in bad positions. Not to mention injuries have plagued their offensive line and wide receivers.

More from Dallas Cowboys

Their secondary appears to continue to struggle with big plays allowed. Philadelphia’s lack of depth at linebacker has left them with not enough talent to compete with other offenses. Many still believe that Philadelphia can ride the ship and turn their season around, but have one of the toughest schedules in the NFL. Dallas has one of the easiest schedules which will help them gain momentum going into this critical NFC East game.

Prescott has had Wentz’ number in head-to-head matches and big-play players like Cooper and Lamb could have an easy time against their secondary. Dallas should be able to score at least 20 points on the Eagles.

Dallas’s defense should get pressure on Wentz who has been sacked six times. Turnovers should be the name of the game for the Cowboys as they need to rattle Wentz into making mistakes. Eliminating running back Miles Sanders from the game will force Wentz to continue playing hero ball.

This should be another win for Dallas with Philadelphia facing drama, but the Eagles have had slow starts in the past and still made the playoffs three straight seasons. A win in Philadelphia could put Dallas in the driver’s seat to winning the division.
