The Eagles vs. AT&T Stadium

The Cowboys have been good at home this year. Heck, they were good at home last year. They're currently enjoying a 14-game home winning streak while playing at Jerry World.

Recently, they’ve been good at home against the Birds too. Dak Prescott is 5-1 against the Eagles in Arlington. He’s thrown for over 1,700 yards and 12 touchdowns. It’s gross.

The Eagles' last win in Arlington was in 2017. They won by a 39-7 margin en route to Super Bowl LII. So, if the Eagles win this game, they’ll go to the Super Bowl. That’s what this means. You have your theories. Those are ours.

Dak Prescott vs. His Own Brain

Listen, Dak has been playing really well this season. He’s not going to be the NFL MVP, but he’s rightfully in the conversation. That’s a huge bummer.

THAT BEING SAID, he’s going to make mistakes. The Eagles need to force more mistakes and capitalize on them when they happen. 

Dak is going to hold onto the ball. If the Eagles’ defensive backs can be competitive with CeeDee Lamb and the edge rushers can win their matchup with Terence Steele, Philly will be able to affect Prescott. If they can do that, they can get Dak to take those brutal sacks that we know and love him for which leads us to our final theory.

Dak flounders in big games. He’ll do it on his own, but life is going to be exponentially easier for the Eagles, and all of us, if they can push him into making bad decisions.
