1. Philadelphia gets to host Dallas Week 16

To say that Philadelphia was embarrassed by their rivals during the first meeting between these two teams back in October would be a huge understatement since Dallas was able to get by with ease during their 37-10 win.

But since plenty has changed for both teams over the last two months, no one should expect these same results since the circumstances are going to be much different during the second meeting.

For starters, the Cowboys will most likely be facing an enormous amount of pressure once Week 16 arrives when it comes to fighting for Jason Garrett‘s job beyond the 2019 season.

Jerry Jones can say whatever he wants about Garrett being safe for now, but unless Dallas makes some sort of serious run at the Super Bowl, it seems like only a matter of time before he’s on his way out.

With this in mind, if the Cowboys have been struggling to handle the pressure as of late with four losses in five games, the chances of them being able to earn a win on the road in a hostile environment against the Eagles seems unlikely once Week 16 rolls around.

Philadelphia will certainly need to play better on their end as well by then since the team hasn’t exactly been the most convincing group in recent weeks, but hopefully by then, the Eagles will be ready for what could be their most important game of 2019.
