The Eagles are fighting to remain undefeated to hold onto the top spot in the NFC East, and to get a little revenge from their two meetings in 2021. Head coach Nick Sirianni doesn’t think about it that way, saying that their only motivation this week is playing their best for each other. Truth is, though, there’s no shortage of motivation for Philly heading into this game, and with what will assuredly be a home-field advantage, they’ll have the perfect setting for success.
It won’t, however, be a cake-walk for the home team. The Cowboys defense will present it’s share of challenges despite the versatility of the Eagles offense we’ve seen through five weeks. We’ve seen A.J. Brown dominate, DeVonta Smith dominate, Miles Sanders set career-highs, Jalen Hurts spread the ball around evenly, and we’ve seen the QB sneak the ball what seemed like 100 times against the Cardinals. Still, the Dallas defense will be one of the toughest they’ve faced at all levels — Demarcus Lawrence up front, Micah Parsons damn near everywhere, and Trevon Diggs and Malik Hooker on the back end.
Hopefully the Eagles defense will have another chance to apply consistent pressure on Cooper Rush, and make the QB feel uncomfortable. Despite Rush’s inexperience, he’s lead the team to four straight wins without Dak Prescott. The team’s Week 1 performance felt flat, with players looking absolutely helpless on the sideline. Since then, they’ve found ways to win and to not look like a complete mess.
Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the game.

It sounds worse than it was considering the Eagles sat most of their starters having locked in their spot in the postseason.
