They say the NFL game is one of inches. It’s also one that, at times, provides little margin for error. The Philadelphia Eagles are 5-0 and set to welcome the hated 4-1 Dallas Cowboys to Lincoln Financial Field for Sunday Night Football, and in this one, both teams walk a thin line.

A win by Philly means the Birds hang on to sole possession of first place and enjoy an early tie-breaking advantage. A loss means Dallas moves into first place, and they own the tie-breaker.

That’s how close the early race for divisional superiority is. That’s what we mean when we say ‘little margin for error’. A loss, by no means, ends Philly’s season, but that would halt the talk of the Eagles being the NFL’s best team, at least for right now.

The football world will be watching as the NFC East’s best teams take center stage in primetime. As expected, the game has been a huge topic of discussion. Here’s what the experts are saying.

Everyone from Rich Eisen to the cast of FS1’s speak is weighing in on the Eagles/Cowboys game.

Rich Eisen was the first on-air personality that NFL Network ever introduced us to and the first host of the network’s flagship show Total Access. He currently hosts NFL GameDay Morning and his own broadcast, The Rich Eisen Show, but having to get up early on Sunday and Monday doesn’t mean that he won’t be up until 11:30 p.m. EST on Sunday night. As a matter of fact, the opposite is true.

He’s “pumped” for the Eagles/Cowboys game. Check this one out, courtesy of his official YouTube channel.

Eagles alum LeSean McCoy is holding things down for the Birds daily on FS1’s Speak. Don’t compare Cooper Rush to Jalen Hurts if he’s anywhere close by. Make sure you check this one out as well as Speak‘s YouTube channel.

Jalen Hurts’ leap has been massive, but he has yet to topple the Cowboys as a starter. This could be the week that he gets it done. Michael Smith and Charles Robinson recently discussed QB1’s development. Check out their Brother From Another channel on YouTube.

Week 6 of the regular season is often too early to begin throwing games in the ‘must-win’ category unless, of course, you’re a Washington Commanders fan, your team is 1-4 after five weeks, and your head coach has seemingly turned on his quarterback.

This isn’t a must-win game, but it is one of immense importance if, for no other reason, to silence the world’s most annoying group of people, Dallas Cowboys fans. A loss isn’t the end of the world, but this is one of those games we want more than others.

We won’t have to wait much longer for kickoff. We’ll either see the Eagles establish themselves convincingly as the kings of the NFC East or the Dallas Cowboys make their statement, that they aren’t quite ready to relinquish their position as the top dogs in the NFL’s Money Division.
