What to expect from Cowboys vs. Eagles
Welcome to the NFL, Ben DiNucci. The seventh-round draft pick out of James Madison has been thrust into the national spotlight after injuries to Dak Prescott and Andy Dalton. He looked okay in his limited playing time against the Washington Football Team in Week 7, completing 2/3 passes for 39 yards. That said, he was sacked three times on only six dropbacks.
DiNucci is going up against a strong defensive front in Philly. If he isn’t ready for the spotlight, he’s going to struggle with the pressure of the Eagles defensive line. Philadelphia is tied for the third-most sacks in the league. They’re led by Brandon Graham, who’s third in the league in sacks with six. The Eagles front seven is going to be vital in this game. They need to get push and pressure DiNucci, but stopping the Cowboys run game should be their top priority.
With a rookie quarterback in the game, Mike McCarthy and Kellen Moore are likely to lean on Ezekiel Elliott. If Elliott is shut down, the Cowboys will likely be stagnant on offense all night.
On the other side of the ball, look for Carson Wentz and the Eagles offense to find a way to score against the putrid Cowboys defense. Boston Scott put up 92 all-purpose yards last week. Look for him to play a major role in tonight’s game. Travis Fulgham against Chidobe Awuzie will be a matchup to watch all night long.
Sunday Night Football Tonight Score Prediction: Eagles win 21-6
