The Eagles are 3-point dogs Sunday night in Dallas, as here’s why they’ll win the game and cover the bet.

The Cowboys ran on 70% of their first-down plays in the first three quarters last week vs. the Jets, averaging just 3.07 YPC on 14 attempts.

There’s no mystery in figuring out how to attack the Eagles’ defense. Passing/play-action on early downs, attack their corners deep, mix in some screens and misdirection runs and get the ball out of the quarterback’s hands quickly.

Given that the Cowboys could be without both starting offensive tackles, Amari Cooper and Randall Cobb, they won’t be aggressive offensively.

These are two evenly matched teams, and I don’t expect the NFC East to be decided until the final two weeks of the season.

But the Eagles win a close one here.

The pick: Eagles (+3)
