Week 15 of the NFL season was one to remember. There were fantastic games, come-from-behind victories, and heart-stopping finishes. If the season ended today, all four members of the NFC East would earn playoff berths. All four teams saw action on Sunday including the Philadelphia Eagles.

Last Sunday, we watched the New York Giants versus Washington Commanders tilt end in controversy. Philadelphia and Dallas Cowboys were both on the road.

The Eagles took care of business versus the Chicago Bears. Dallas lost in heartbreaking fashion by way of an overtime loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

You won’t hear any complaints from Eagles Nation when the Cowboys lose, especially seeing as how another loss by the so-called America’s Team during their final three games would ensure Philly claims the top postseason seed in the NFC come playoff time. One more win for Philly versus Dallas, the New Orleans Saints, or New York Giants would create the same scenario.

With that being said, Saturday’s clash isn’t as important as we thought it would be seven days ago, but come on. It’s the Eagles versus the Cowboys. The world will be watching. The angst hasn’t lessened, but without Jalen Hurts, many are saying this is Dallas’s game to win.

Come on! Even if we thought Philly would lose to Dallas, we’d never say that. Old habits die hard seemingly. Still, we believe enough in Gardner Minshew to state with confidence that he’s more than capable of walking into AT&T Stadium and lifting the Birds to victory.

That’s how we see this one playing out. Philly wins this one by the same six-point margin that Las Vegas has given to the Cowboys. Prediction: Eagles 30, Cowboys 24
