For the 14th straight season, the rivalry matchup between the Cowboys and Eagles will be a primetime game.
Heading into the game, both NFC East foes find themselves 1-1, and both having found success in different ways. The Cowboys have found success passing with the return of Dak Prescott, with the team having recorded the sixth-most passing yards at 640, while the tandem of Tony Pollard and Ezekiel Elliott have helped the team rush for a total of 258 yards, the seventh-most in the league.
The Eagles have leaned on their rushing attack to carry the offense so far this season. Jalen Hurts has recorded the sixth-most rushing yards in the first two weeks of a season all-time by a QB with 144 yards with Miles Sanders giving the team a strong running back.
Through the early part of the season, both defenses play against their opponents’ strengths. Philadelphia has held opponents to 325 passing yards, the third-fewest this season, while the Cowboys have allowed only 147 rushing yards so far, the eighth-fewest in the league.
