Cowboys Stadium, Arlington, TX
Philadelphia Eagles is coming to Arlington all guns out and blazing. They need to win this one to clinch the division and get the home field advantage. Both teams have played amazing these last weeks and their stats are almost identical so it all comes to the individuals and the playmakers each team has, in this case QB Donovan McNaab has a lot more experience than Romo and has thrown for more TDS than him so that could be a good stat to keep in mind. Other players involved in offense are RB LeSean McCoy, FB Leonard Weaver, WR DeSean Jackson and TE Brent Celek and it’s obvious that Philly strategy will be to let the pigskin fly and keep Dallas on defense guessing what will be next on the list, they need to score and fast to make the defense chase the ball.
Dallas Cowboys and QB Tony Romo could make this game a long night for the Eagles if they get McNaab on the blitz. It is all about the defense the Cowboys present. The offense usually takes care of themselves and usually are good enough to win but they are facing a team very much like them in every aspect of the game so defense will be the key note. Other players involved in offense are RB Marion Barber, RB Felix Jones, WR Miles Austin and TE Jason Witten. As we mentioned before the stats are almost identical but I am appealing to the Cowboys defense who haven’t allowed more than 20 points since week 9 so this could be the real deal for the if they beat the Eagles fot the second time this season.
PHILADELPHIA EAGLES 47
DALLAS COWBOYS -3 -115
THIS IS A GAME THAT EVERYONE WILL BE WATCHING. THE EAGLES STILL FEEL THE NEED TO BEAT THE COWBOYS SINCE THEY HAVE THE DIVISION ON THE LINE BUT ALSO THEY HAVEN’T FORGOT THE DEFEAT EARLY THIS SEASON SO THIS GAME COULD BE REDEMPTION TIME FOR THEM. DALLAS DEFENSE SAYS BRING THEM ON, THEY CAN TAKE CARE OF THEM SO IT SOUNDS LIKE THE VERY OFFENSIVE EAGLES MEET THE VERY DEFENSIVE COWBOYS. MY PICK WILL BE DALLAS COWBOYS -3 -115.
