Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia will host a very interesting rivalry game this week at 4:25 PM ET. There, the Eagles will play host to the Dallas Cowboys. These two NFC East rivals have met several times in some very good matchups. This game should be a good one, but not because both teams have been having stellar years. It will honestly be more interesting as both teams have coaches that are a bit on the hot seat. Both teams have identical 3-5 records and are performing under their expectations. It will truly be anyone’s game.
The Cowboys come into the game after a hard-fought 19-13 loss to the Falcons last Sunday night. The team showed some poise and has really been a tough match all year. In the end they have just made a mistake here or there, which has cost them many games. Their defense has been one of the better ones in the league, but the offense has been anything but consistent. They do have the edge on both sides of the ball as they are ranked better in most statistical categories other than rush yards per game.
The Eagles come into the game after a terrible offensive day in New Orleans against the Saints. They lost the game 28-13 on Monday night and looked awful in the process. There have been rumors that the team may go another route instead of continuing with Andy Reid. Losing this divisional game would certainly not help his cause especially at home. Dallas will plan to play spoiler and try to stay afloat for possible wild card aspirations.
