5 Cowboys the Philadelphia Eagles must limit on offense

Dak Prescott, quarterback

Dak Prescott finally got his money, and while that’s a cause for concern for some Eagles fans, there are others that really don’t fear the guy. Dallas is 5-3 versus Philadelphia with Dak under center, and they will be favored in this one.

Tony Pollard, running back

The Birds have had their issues with Ezekiel Elliott in the past. The Cowboys are actually 6-2 versus Philly in games that he’s been a part of, but it’s actually Tony Pollard that leads Dallas in rushing this season. He’s racked up 123 yards and a 7.7 yards-per-carry average on only 16 carries.

Amari Cooper, wide receiver

Amari Cooper and Darius Slay’s paths have crossed a time or two, and Big Play has often shown Coop who’s boss. Another chapter in their rivalry within the rivalry comes on Monday Night Football.

CeeDee Lamb, wide receiver

Does anyone else sit back and think about how life might have turned out had CeeDee Lamb fallen to the Philadelphia Eagles during the 2020 NFL Draft? Well, Dallas made sure that didn’t happen, and so far, that appears to be a decision that has worked out for them.

Tyron Smith, left tackle

For the Birds to be successful, they’ll need to get to Dak and get on his nerves some. They’ve sacked him 19 times in eight career games. If they want to add to that total, they’ll need to get around his blindside blocker, Tyron Smith.
