The Dallas Cowboys (10-4) play the Philadelphia Eagles (13-1) at AT&T Stadium on 24th December at 16:25. The two sides face off this week in a divisional matchup that could decide the NFC East race. The Dallas Cowboys are in second place in the division, with a 10-4 record from 14 regular season matches. In first lies the Philadelphia Eagles, who are 13-1 from 14 contests. Prices with the oddsmakers lean towards a home win for the Dallas Cowboys at the AT&T Stadium on Saturday. However, on the back of some strong wins, the Philadelphia Eagles are a solid unit to handle currently, and the home side is undoubtedly warned.
Form Dallas Cowboys
The Jacksonville Jaguars proved too much to handle last time out in a 40-34 defeat for the Dallas Cowboys. That said, the hosts are on a bit of a hot streak in the NFC East. They’ve won nine of their past ten divisional matchups, leaving them hopeful for a swift return to winning ways in Week 16.
Playing at the AT&T Stadium brings out the best in the Dallas Cowboys. They have the third-best home offensive record, averaging 28.8 points per game with home-field advantage and 28.1 points for all 14 of their regular season games. Defensively, the hosts have the seventh-best unit of all 32 teams, allowing just 19.2 points on average and 17.9 points on their own ground.
The NFC East title may be a long shot with a record of 10-4, but the fifth-seeded Dallas Cowboys have still clinched a spot in the upcoming NFC playoffs going into the final weeks of the regular season.
Form Philadelphia Eagles
Form is strong for the Philadelphia Eagles, who beat Chicago Bears by a 20-25 scoreline last time out, thereby extending their winning streak to five matches. Their overall regular season record is now 13-1 and 7-0 on the road.
The Philadelphia Eagles rank up in second-place in the NFL’s offensive rankings, with 29.4 points per game this season and 28.7 points on the road. On the other side, the defense is longer the same unit that gave up 23.1 points on average last year, ranking sixth in the league today after keeping opposing offenses down to just 19.1 points per match.
Despite making the playoffs, the Philadelphia Eagles can’t rest on their laurels just yet. The next step for the NFC East leaders is to clinch the division title and hold on to first seed in the NFC Conference. This will hand them a bye week for the wild-card round of the playoffs.
The previous matchup between these two franchises ended in a 26-17 win for the Philadelphia Eagles at the Lincoln Financial Field in October 2022. The Dallas Cowboys came away with three wins from their past five matchups against the Philadelphia Eagles, leaving them with an overall record of 3-2.
