Philadelphia is a lot better than their record states, as they've played a couple of games without key players such as Brian Dawkins, Lito Sheppard and Brian Westbrook. In most categories these teams are pretty evenly matched. The biggest disadvantage to Dallas is their penalties. Dallas is averaging 58.9 penalty YPG and 7.6 Penalties per game. Philly is averaging 53.4 and 6.4, respectively. Philly's one key disadvantage is their lack of forced turnovers. They have 5 to Dallas' 13. They may not turn the ball over as much, but they don't get it. Reggie Brown, however will be able to exploit the iffy secondary of Dallas for deep scores. I'm biting my tongue as i do this, but I'm calling in Philly's favor based on location over anything.
Final Score: Philadelphia 17, Dallas 14
Offensive MVP: Reggie Brown
Defensive MVP: Trent Cole
You must obviously be an Eagles fan. Dallas is a lot better than the Eagles this year.
No joke. It's not impossible that Philly wins this game. I mean, it is a divisional rivalry game and anything can happen, but your logic is extremely flawed. Their offense is nowhere near the Cowboys production. 24, 25, and 27, are the three lowest point totals for the Cowboys this season. One was against New England, which if not the best defense, is top two for sure. No WAY that the Eagles hold them to 14. Add to that the fact that Dallas has the fifth best run defense in the league, and I don't see Philly being able to win this game by any normal circumstances.
