We're planting our flag. We expect an Eagles win over the Cowboys. Here's how we see the game playing out.

The Cowboys won't eclipse 300 yards of offense, and the Eagles' secondary will force a turnover.

Here's something else to think about. Philly's defensive coordinator has had to juggle bodies all season, and in Week 9, he'll have the benefit of having the most healthy unit he has had in a while. His news star, Kevin Byard, should be more comfortable with what's going on, and he or one of his teammates in the secondary will produce a turnover of some sort in this one.

A forced fumble... An interception... We couldn't care less how they do it.

The Eagles defense sacks Dak Prescott four times.

We complicate football sometimes, but it's truly a simple game. How many times have you heard the following? Keep your quarterback upright, and make sure he's comfortable. Make life a nightmare for the guy on the other sideline.

You know the names. Jordan Davis... Jalen Carter... Fletcher Cox... Milton Williams... Josh Sweat.. Brandon Graham... Haason Reddick... We expect to see Dak Prescott on the turf early and often.
