WHY THE EAGLES WILL BEAT THE COWBOYS AND COVER 2 1/2

Short road dogs have been covering machines this season, and the Eagles (2 1/2-point dogs) will continue that trend in Dallas Sunday night.

A lot of this will depend on injuries: if the Cowboys are without Tyron Smith AND Amari Cooper, life could be rough for Dak Prescott.

The Eagles secondary might be a problem, but being forced to lean solely on Michael Gallup isn’t ideal. Neither is getting consistently pressured by someone like Derek Barnett or Fletcher Cox, which will happen if Smith can’t suit up Sunday night. (Worth noting he was back at practice on a limited basis Thursday.)

More concerning for the Cowboys than those injuries though, is the defense. Dallas rates 25th overall in defensive DVOA and can be run on. Jordan Howard is actually playing pretty well and Miles Sanders is becoming lethal in the passing game out of the backfield.
