The Cowboys have been on quite the rollercoaster to start the season, as they lost Dak Prescott to a thumb injury in an ugly loss to the Bucs back in Week 1, which in turn, left quarterback duties to Cooper Rush for the foreseeable future. However, Dallas has still played solid football with Rush in the drivers’ seat, as the Cowboys followed up their Week 1 loss with consecutive wins over the Bengals, Giants, Commanders, and Rams, while scoring 20+ PTS in all four of those affairs.

The Eagles’ defense currently leads the league with 11 takeaways and ranks seventh in scoring at 17.6 PPG, so they’re certainly no joke. However, it’s been a bit of a pendulum swing, as they surrendered 24.3 PPG in matchups against the Lions, Jaguars, and Cardinals, and allowed just 7.5 PPG to the Vikings and Commanders. So, I’ll back Dallas to find mid-level success after averaging 22.5 PPG across four contests with Rush under center.

After missing the first three weeks of the season due to an injury that carried over from last year, Cowboys’ WR Michael Gallup was surprisingly quiet in his first two contests back in action, as Gallup hauled in two-of-three targets for 24 YDS against the Commanders, and four-of-five targets for 44 yards against the Rams.

However, Gallup posted performances of 35+ receiving yards in eight of the nine matchups he participated in last season (49.4 YPG), and with CeeDee Lamb likely drawing a tough shadow matchup from All-Pro CB Darius Slay, I think we’ll see Rush utilize his secondary weapons quite a bit on Sunday night, and Gallup should benefit significantly from that.

Miles Sanders has experienced his fair share of ups and downs during his young four-year career in Philly, however, he’s been a surprisingly consistent contributor for the Eagles’ rushing attack early this season, as Sanders carried the ball 15+ times for 58+ yards in four-of-five contests to open the year, with his only performance falling short of that number coming in a blowout win over Washington (15 CAR, 46 YDS).

The Cowboys bottled up Jalen Hurts for 35 rushing yards on nine carries in his lone performance against Dallas last year. However, the Cowboys’ defense has proven susceptible to the run early this season, as they currently rank 21st in yards allowed per rush (4.7 YPA) and fourth in yards allowed per pass (5.2 YPA). So, I’ll back Philly to lean on Sanders here.
