It doesn’t take much effort to create a buzz when we’re discussing the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys. We don’t need a hype video (though we do enjoy them), nor do we need to see highlight reels and commercials. Any meeting between these age-old rivals is always circled on the calendar. When we’re discussing an early-season battle for first place in the NFC East, even the most casual fan feels a need to tune into this one.

Sunday Night Football is officially must-see television. The 5-0 Birds have a date with the so-called America’s Team.

Eagles versus Cowboys Odds Week 6

According to FanDuel, the home team (Philadelphia) is favored by 5.5 points with odds of -106 compared to -114 for the Cowboys. Philadelphia’s moneyline is set at -220 compared to +184 for Dallas. The over/under is set at 43.5 points.

All of that seems fair. This figures to be a close tussle. 44 total points seem about right. Even if the game has been lopsided, five of the previous eight meetings have produced 44 points or more.

You’ve heard this so often that you’ve probably said it in your sleep a few times. The NFC East hasn’t had a repeat champion since Andy Reid paced the Eagles’ sideline and the Birds won four straight divisional crowns from 2001 to 2004.

Sure, everyone is impressed with what the Cowboys have done without Dak Prescott. Yes, their defense is amazing, but the eyeball test tells us the Eagles are a more complete team with a better offensive unit. The time is now. Philly is focused. Week 6’s game is the first step towards establishing some order.

The home crowd at Lincoln Financial Field will help spearhead a victory, and the Birds, who are clearly the more talented team, will win this one by ten points thanks to an insurance touchdown that’s tacked on late. Final score: Philadelphia 31, Dallas 21.
