Featured Game | Philadelphia Eagles vs. Dallas Cowboys
Why the Eagles can cover
Wide receiver A.J. Brown has five or more catches and 65 or more receiving yards in four of his first five games this season and is looking for his third home game in a row with at least five receptions. He ranks fifth with 436 receiving yards in 2022 and is tied for the team lead with DeVonta Smith with 28 receptions. He has scored one touchdown and has registered five explosive plays, including a 45-yarder. His best game this season was in the season-opener at Detroit, when he caught 10 passes for 155 yards, converting seven first downs.
Also helping power the Eagles offense is tight end Dallas Goedert. Goedert had eight catches for a team-high 95 yards last week against Arizona. He has five or more catches in four of his past five games at home. He also leads NFC tight ends with 335 receiving yards in 2022. In a Week 3 win at Washington, he caught three passes for 26 yards and a score.
Why the Cowboys can cover
Despite that, the Eagles are not a lock to cover the Cowboys vs. Eagles spread. That’s because Dallas backup quarterback Cooper Rush has proven to be capable. He became just the fifth undrafted QB to win each of his first five career starts in the Super Bowl era. He has six touchdowns with just one interception for a 95.8 rating in those starts.
Running back Ezekiel Elliott will try for his fourth game in a row with 75 or more yards from scrimmage. He has dominated the Eagles and has 1,317 scrimmage yards (131.7 per game) and five touchdowns, including four rushing, in 10 career games versus Philadelphia. Since 2016, he leads the NFL in rushing yards (7,691) and is tied for second in rushing TDs (57). In five games this season, Elliott has carried 81 times for 305 yards (3.8 average) and one touchdown.
