NFL Week 7 starts this Thursday. One of the top games will be Eaglest at Cowboys. The Dallas Cowboys will be trying to snap a three-game losing streak when they face the Philadelphia Eagles for sole possession of first place in the NFC East standings on Sunday Night Football. The game will be played at AT&T Stadium and is scheduled to begin at 8:20 PM. ET.
Philadelphia Eagles Analysis:
The Eagles had their two-game winning streak snapped by the Minnesota Vikings. This was in their last game. Also, will try to bounce back from the loss with a win over the Cowboys on Sunday night. Prior to their game against the Vikings, the Eagles had averaged 32.5 points per game in their last three games. However, they only managed 20 points against the Vikings after falling behind by 14 points at the half. They will try to avoid another slow start when they face the Cowboys on Sunday night. Do the Eagles have any chance?
One of the biggest offensive problems the Eagles have had this season is their inability to run the ball consistently. They signed Jordan Howard in the offseason to help improve their ground game. However, he hasn’t had the impact they were hoping for. He has 297 rushing yards and four touchdowns so far. Was Howard a bust?
If the Eagles can run the ball successfully against the Cowboys, it will open up their passing game. Also, keep Minnesota’s defense off balance, giving them a better chance to win this game.
Betting Picks for NFL Week 7
Dallas Cowboys Analysis:
The Cowboys got off to a 3-0 start, which led to speculation that they would be the team to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. Since then, they have lost their last three games and will try to bounce back from the losses with a win on Sunday.
The Cowboys have struggled in their last three games because the team has moved away from what was successful for them earlier in the season and have put the ball in Dak Prescott’s hands more than they have given it to Ezekiel Elliott, who has 491 yards and five touchdowns through the first six games. What can we expect in NFL Week 7?
Dak Prescott has also struggled during the team’s losing streak, and has thrown four of his six interceptions in their last three games. He managed to avoid throwing an interception in their last game and will need another clean game to beat the Eagles on Sunday night.
NFL Week 7 Pick and Prediction:
The Cowboys are favored to win this game by three points. The over/under on total points scored is 48.5.
The Eagles and Cowboys are evenly matched offensively, with the Eagles averaging 26.8 points per game, while the Cowboys average 25.5 points per game. However, the Cowboys are the better defensive unit, holding opponents to 19 points per game, while the Eagles are giving up 24.8 points per game. For NFL Week 7 take the Cowboys.
