The Eagles defense registers three sacks and two turnovers.

The Eagles didn't look too hot versus the San Francisco 49ers. Look at the bright side though. This is another week, and we were watching a one-score game in Week 13 with a little over five minutes remaining. Hey, we'll take our victories any way that we can get them.

The Birds almost suffered a mini-implosion in Week 9 versus these same Cowboys. Still, in the end, Dallas would only score six second-half points.

Expect a solid and complete four quarters of football from Sean Desai's guys. They have taken a lot of criticism. There's too much talent on this roster for this defense not to respond. We're calling for three sacks. We're expecting two turnovers by the Dallas offense. They're about due.

This one ends with Philly's defense stopping a last-minute Cowboys comeback attempt... again.

We have played this one out in our minds over and over. The Eagles win each time. Here's how we'll paint the picture and close this.

The Eagles jump out ahead early. The Cowboys rally to make this one tighter, but in the end, with pressure mounting, Dak Prescott will choke. Philly's defense thwarts a late-game rally again. It would be nice if Dak threw a pick to seal it.

Final score: Eagles 31, Cowboys 27
