NFL Week Two: Philadelphia Eagles vs Dallas Cowboys NFC East Rivalry Clash
Dallas Cowboys: Begin life without Pro Bowl WR Dez Bryant
While a win over division rival is always a good thing, the Cowboys 27-26 Week One victory over the New York Giants came at a high cost. Although reports vary, Dallas All-Pro WR Dez Bryant is expected to miss anywhere from 6-12 weeks as he recovers a broken foot. That said, Dallas still has plenty of weapons on offense and we expect wide receivers Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley will both step up in this contest. Dallas will also lean a little more heavier on their running game in this contest as they attempt to control the clock on the road against the Eagles hurry-up offense.
Philadelphia Eagles: Impressive NFL Week One comeback slipped away in Atlanta
Strange. That’s the best way to describe the Philadelphia Eagles 26-24 loss on the road to the Atlanta Falcons during the first half of the NFL Monday Night Football doubleheader last week. The Eagles fell behind 20-3 at halftime prior to taking a 24-23 lead in the fourth quarter. Philadelphia missed a long field goal (54 yards) and then QB Sam Bradford tossed an interception during two drives with four minutes left on the clock. After he posted 2461 total yards and 13 touchdowns for Dallas last season, RB Demarco Murray will battle his former team in this contest today.
Dallas vs Philadelphia NFL Week Two Call: Playing the 113th contest in this bitter NFC East rivalry series, an Eagles vs Cowboys clash is always entertaining. Dallas won’t be fazed by a trip into the Linc as they have posted a win during four of their last five trips to the City of Brotherly Love. While no Dez Bryant is a concern here, we still see this being a close contest. As such, we will take the generous 11 points and bet 500 units on the alternate spread price posted at the William Hill sportsbook.
