This is a highly anticipated matchup.
Not only do we get division rivals but Dallas has a chance to really put themselves ahead with a win. That would put them two games clear of the Eagles, the next best team in the NFC East.
Kick off is set for 8:30 PM ET with two rookie quarterbacks, Dak Prescott and Carson Wentz, looking to show a national audience just how good they are.
A lot of prime time games have been duds this year. This one should live up to its billing.
The Eagles lost some lustre with back to back road losses but they made a nice rebound last week handing Minnesota their first loss of the season at home.
The defense was the story, holding the Vikings to just 10 points and forcing a number of turnovers.
At the same time Carson Wentz had the worst game of what has been a good rookie season. He has to be steadier for them to win on the road.
When he is off it really challenges an offense that lacks a lot of gamebreakers. They run the ball OK but this offense is predicated on Wentz making the right calls.
The defense has been good all season long.
They are 5th in yards allowed and third in points and tied for second in sacks. Fletcher Cox is a monster in the middle with four sacks. He is so disruptive that he creates opportunities for other players on the defense.
Case in point Brandon Graham who should set a career high in sacks this season.
The defense is definitely going to have to lead the way if the Eagles are going to be in this one on Sunday.
Dallas was rolling with five straight wins heading into their bye week last week. Hopefully they can keep it going.
One benefit of the extra time is that it looks like Dez Bryant will now be healthy to go, making their offense even scarier.
Ezekiel Elliot has gotten off to a great start.
He leads the league in rushing, which is all more impressive given that he did not have much after the first two games. Over the last four he has exceeded 130 yards on the ground each time.
You have to give the rookie credit but some should go to the offensive line as well.
Credit also has to go to a defense that 6th in scoring, yielding just 17ppg.
They have a number of impact players out but this group is resilient in that bend but don’t break style – even though they are not giving up that many points they are in the middle in yards allowed.
The question is whether they can keep that up over a whole season.
Everything is clicking for Dallas right now, putting the Romo questions on a low simmer.
If they are able to keep winning it will stay that way, but a loss or two, especially at home, could quickly turn things into a circus.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Cowboys -4.5
The Cowboys should be able to get the win here. They are off the bye and healthier than they have been all season long. Bryant is a difference maker.
NFL Free Score Prediction: Dallas 31 – Philadelphia 21
This should be a close game throughout but a late TD by Dallas salts away the win and provides another cover for all of us.
