Philadelphia Eagles @ Dallas Cowboys: NFC East lead on the line as fierce rivals meet

We are heading to Dallas, and our men are gonna be prepared to perform. And were gont win this football game, and once we do, we are in first place in the NFC East.
These were the words of Eagles head coach Doug Pederson on Monday to 94WIP radio, as a local Philadelphia channel, since he looked to his groups critical NFL clash on Sunday Night Football.
Pederson called it confidence, rather than awarranty of a triumph, but it stems in a trainer who wants a victory – by a group that has to get their season on track Sunday.
The Eagles have been difficult to figure out in 2019. Their 3-3 report tells us theyre amiddle-of-the road team, but a 34-27 win against the Packers in Green Bay in Week Four (Green Bays only loss this year ) showed us what they are able to as quarterback Carson Wentz had a supreme performance and the group as a whole stepped up.
Theyve scored the ninth-most points (26.8 per game) and 20 every single game, but their defense was a clear issue. The passing D is the leagues fourth-worst (letting 280 yards per game) and they have given up at least 24 points to every opponent away from the lowly Jets.
After falling out on acquiring Jalen Ramsey from the Jaguars – with overall manager Howie Roseman – that the Eagles secondary is the part of the team that could specify the year.
Though Ramsey wasnt secured by them, they really do back corners Jalen Mills and Ronald Darby. However, are they good enough to make a genuine difference?
During the 2017 Super Bowl-winning run of Philadelphia they exuded confidence and swagger to a document about the way and also a shock win with backup Nick Foles at the helm.
Last season, Pederson declared his team had got away from their ways early in the year, but they rallied to make the playoffs and win a road playoff game before missing out to the Saints in the divisional round.
Perhaps Pedersonswe will win statement is a telephone for his group to regain that identical confidence that they showed in 2017 and in the end of last year. However, his team has to come through.
Saying you will do something and executing it are two entirely separate entities, when a fake field goal effort against the Vikings fell flat from the teams comeback attempt as Pederson was reminded a week.
They have to secure a win If the Eagles head to Dallas. With a four-game stretch of games from Buffalo (4-1), Chicago (3-2), New England (6-0) and Seattle (5-1) around the horizon and a slew of NFC teams standing out already, Sunday night can decide if Philly are on the way down or up.
Similarly, what can we create of Dallas and also their indistinguishable 3-3 record?
They followed a 3-0 beginning – if they were considered ancient Super Bowl contenders – with three losses. Granted, the first two were to red-hot teams from Green Bay and New Orleans, as Dallas couldnt secure a road comeback, losing 37, but they talented the Jets their first win.
The team stats suggest they are competent – that they rank in the top 10 in points, points for , yards against and total yards for against – but whats missing. Is it training?
Now every time that the Cowboys slump is come under fire by Jason Garrett. Last year was only the third time Dallas have left the playoffs under Garrett (with only two postseason wins in the years ), also if they dont make this year, it may be his last.
What in their quarterback, Dak Prescott? In matches one-three, he completed 74.47 percent of his passes, threw nine touchdowns into two selections and had a 128.0 passer rating. In the three since? 65.81 completion percent, two TDs, four interceptions and also a 82.7 passer rating. Is he to blame?
Running back Ezekiel Elliott has been the player this offense has run through, but he is on a career-low pace of 81.8 rushing yards per game this year. There is definitely reason.
The Cowboys are 4-0 against the Eagles when Elliott plays, and 0-2 if he does not. The 2016 draftee has averaged 115.8 rushing yards per game in his profession versus the Eagles, the most by any participant in the Super Bowl era.
Dallas will feel positive heading in regardless of what has occurred this year. They won the matchups between the two teams a year (27-20 at Philadelphia and 29-23 later overtime in Dallas) in their way to the division title.
They possess the explosive offense along with defensive playmakers which should make them NFC East favourites, but can they bring it?
Three extremely significant offensive players are suspicious for Dallas: tackles Tyron Smith and Wide receiver Amari Cooper along with Lael Collins.
Cooper managed just 1 reception for three yards and suffered a thigh bruise last weekend. He is doubtful for Sunday, and his absence would be huge – year at his home he had 217 yards 10 catches and a hat-trick of touchdowns such as the game-winner.
However, after missing a weeks loss, Collins and Smith both returned to practice in a limited capacity on Thursday. Their returns will be huge for shielding Prescott and obtaining the run game.
Philadelphia will be given a increase if DeSean Jackson will go back after a gut injury that has kept him out since Week 2, but its not looking as of Thursdays injury report.
The Eagles will probably be missing left tackle linebacker and Jason Peters Nigel Bradham, two starters. Although Jalen Mills and Ronald Darby practiced they are still long shots to play with be at 100 percent.
