2. Cowboys will see both Ravens, 49ers in December
First off, yes the argument can be made that Philadelphia will face both the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers within the span of a month just like Dallas, meaning there is no reason to claim one team has an advantage over the other.

But if anything, the Eagles could end up with a slight advantage over getting these two meetings out of the way earlier in the year during the month of October while the Cowboys will deal with the Ravens and 49ers in December.
As every football fan knows, the final month of regular season action can sometimes be brutal as teams are not only worn down from the previous months along with feeling the pressure of competing down the stretch for a playoff spot.
With both the Ravens and 49ers considered to be two of the top Super Bowl contender entering the 2020 season, no one needs to explain to the Cowboys how tough these two battles could be in December, especially if all three teams happen to be in the running for the postseason.
Once again, this doesn’t mean that Philadelphia’s two meetings will be any easier to deal with, but at least getting these battles out of the way earlier in the season could add extra pressure to Dallas.
