The Eagles and Cowboys meet for an important NFC East clash in prime time on Sunday Night Football.
The Philadelphia Eagles returned to the practice field on Wednesday for the first time since what was both a humbling and deflating defeat at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers. 42-19 was the final score in Week 13 this past Sunday. Eight weeks earlier, the Dallas Cowboys were ripped to shreds to the tune of a 42-10 final score.
Here's the thing. Many view these three teams as the NFC's best. No disrespect is intended toward the Detroit Lions. The theory is they're a year or so away.
Still, based on what we saw in the Birds and Cowboys' attempts to knock the Niners from their throne, the consensus is neither team is ready to do so. That's okay. There's plenty of time remaining in the regular season to improve. For Dallas and Philly, their next steps lead them to each other.
Here are ten Cowboys who are not named Dak Prescott that we're certain the Eagles are discussing in great detail.
The Eagles and Cowboys know each other very well. They meet in Week 14 on Sunday Night Football. We expect an Eagles bounce back win, but here are ten stars who play for the bad guys that are hoping to ruin the party
1. Tony Pollard, running back
If the Eagles limit Tony Pollard's production, which is very possible, they'll make the Cowboys' offense one-dimensional. Then, the task becomes limiting what Dak Prescott can do as a scrambler and a passer. He's been on fire, but the Birds have the horses to contain him... we hope.
Write Pollard's name down. Let's continue.
