Cowboys vs. Eagles Breakdown and Betting Odds

The 5-0 Philadelphia Eagles host the 4-1 Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football on October 16 at 8:20 PM EST.

The Eagles come into this game a 6-point favorite, and the over/under has been set at 43.

Dallas Cowboys Overview

Will he or won’t he, that is the question that was finally resolved on Thursday. Quarterback Dak Prescott has been out with a thumb injury, and he will not return to face the Eagles in Week 6. Backup Cooper Rush has been outstanding in relief of Prescott and has led the Cowboys on a 4-0 run.

Another lingering concern for the Cowboys is how healthy linebacker Micah Parsons is. The team says he will play, but he had visible discomfort in the Week 5 win over the Rams after suffering from a groin injury.

Philadelphia Eagles Overview

The Eagles are the only remaining undefeated team in the NFL. Quarterback Jalen Hurts is playing at his absolute best through the first five games.

He has four touchdown passes and six rushing touchdowns. Hurts threw for over 1,300 yards and only has two interceptions.

The Cowboys are the toughest team thus far on the Eagles 2022 schedule. Three of the Eagles’ wins are against Detroit, Washington, and Jacksonville. Those three teams collectively have four wins this year. Pick: Philadelphia (-6)

It is difficult to pick against the Eagles the way they are playing. With home field advantage and the prime-time audience watching to see how good this team is, the Eagles will cover the spread and show everyone why they are Pro Football Focus’s highest ranked team week-over-week in its power rankings.
