The Eagles draw the Dallas Cowboys in primetime for Week 6 and in a road game on Christmas eve.
There are theories that CeeDee Lamb‘s job description with the Dallas Cowboys will involve a lot of slot duty, and it may. He’s pretty versatile and can be moved all over the field by their offensive coordinator, Kellen Moore.
Another theory is the following. With Dallas making the decision to move on from Amari Cooper, Malik Turner, AND Cedrick Wilson Jr., CeeDee, a former first-round selection, has to step up and fill some pretty big cleats left behind by Amari.
Sure, Big Play could draw Lamb duty, leaving Bradberry to keep tabs on Michael Gallup on the other side of the formation; however, we’d be willing to bet that Philly’s talented cornerback duo splits time covering both guys. That seems to be a pretty safe bet to wager.
The Birds have been mentioned as a team that could wear the NFC East’s crown at season’s end. They figure to have to go through Dallas to get that done. As always, these long-time foes have two games scheduled. Both could come down to a single play.
Someone as talented as Lamb can keep Slay and Bradberry busy all afternoon, and it would be extremely disappointing to see them keep him in check all afternoon (or evening) only to see him spoil things by making one huge play late.
Fingers are crossed that things won’t play out that way. These are the Eagles and the Cowboys though. You never know how these things will play out.
