The Philadelphia Eagles will face the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football this week. Which Eagles are key to a victory?
Every Philadelphia Eagles fan’s favorite week is finally here! The week where the Eagles play their most despised opponent of every single season. While the Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys play each other twice a year, the first meeting is always so intense.
This year, a lot is riding on this first matchup. For starters, both the Eagles and the Cowboys are tied for first place in the NFC East, with 3-3 records. And both teams are trending downwards, as they both took tough losses last week on the road.
Not only do both of these teams need this win on Sunday Night Football, but the Eagles especially need to back up what Doug Pederson was saying earlier in the week. While Pederson denies guaranteeing a win against Dallas last Monday, the Cowboys don’t see it that way.
All week long, Dallas has been aware of Pederson’s comments, and now they are looking to try and shut him up. Therefore, the Eagles need to use their coach’s fire as motivation and go out on prime time and get a win versus Dallas. So with that, which five players are key to making it happen on Sunday night?
