Why the Eagles can cover
Quarterback Jalen Hurts had 300 yards, including 239 passing, with two rushing TDs in the Week 5 win at Arizona. Hurts has seven career games with two or more rushing touchdowns, tied for the second-most by a quarterback all-time. He has 19 rushing TDs in 24 starts, also the most by a quarterback in his first 25 career starts. Hurts has also been dangerous when playing at home. He has 12 touchdowns, including eight rushing, in his past five home starts.
Philadelphia’s defense is stout. Among its leaders is defensive end Brandon Graham. Graham had one sack, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery in the last home meeting with the Cowboys and looks for his third game in a row against Dallas with a sack. For the season, he has 14 tackles, including seven solo, with three sacks, three tackles for loss, one pass breakup and one forced fumble.
Why the Cowboys can cover
Wide receiver CeeDee Lamb leads the team with 28 receptions for 341 yards (12.2 average) and two touchdowns. He has four explosive plays of 20 yards or more and 130 yards after the catch. Lamb will look for his fifth game in a row with five or more catches and 50 or more receiving yards. His best game so far this year was an eight-catch, 87-yard and one TD performance against the New York Giants in Week 3.
Defensively, linebacker Micah Parsons has been a disruptive playmaker. Parsons had two sacks and a forced fumble in a Week 5 win over the Los Angeles Rams, and is one of three players (Nick Bosa and T.J. Watt) with six games of two or more sacks since 2021. Parsons has three sacks and seven tackles for loss in three career Sunday Night Football games. He will be looking for his third game in a row on SNF with a sack and his fourth game in a row with a tackle for loss.
