Crossing Broad Week 14 Eagles Predictions

Photo credit: Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

The Eagles look to win their third straight game, all against NFC East opponents, as they travel to Dallas to take on the Cowboys in a must-in game to stay alive in the NFC East and overall playoff hunt.

The Cowboys are favored at -3.5, according to Fanduel Sportsbook.

Our predictions are after the jump:

Chris: The Eagles are riding so much momentum, and so are the Cowboys. They’re at home and they’re feeling the same way the Birds were a few weeks ago on Sunday Night Football. Revenge occurs and the Eagles take the division lead and Dallas starts to skid in yet another memorable Eagles win in Texas. Eagles 24, Cowboys 20 (Eagles +3.5).

Jeff: Cowboys 23, Eagles 21 (Eagles +3.5).

Mike: Cowboys 21, Eagles 17 (Cowboys -3.5).

Tim: 

Coggin: If I was a betting man I wouldn’t touch this game with a 10-foot pole. My heart says Eagles, but my brain says Dallas and the Eagles season comes to an end. Dallas wins with a last second FG after a Josh Adams fumble. Cowboys 23, Eagles 20 (Eagles +3.5).

Phil: But for Colt McCoy’s broken fibula — and really, Monday Night Football producers, did you need to follow him down the tunnel as he hobbled off knowing that his season and maybe his career are over? — this season would already be all but done. Ezekiel Elliott owns the Eagles, the secondary won’t be able to contain Amari Cooper, and as usual that pest Cole Beasley will make a catch to convert a 3rd and 12 and hop around like he won something. Short week, the Cowboys are better, the Eagles don’t even have one quality win this season…don’t let your heart get in the way of your wallet. Cowboys 31, Eagles 24 (Cowboys -3.5).

Anthony: There’s nothing I have seen this season that makes me think the Eagles are a better team than the Cowboys heading into this game. Dallas is favored by 3.5 and for good reason. But there’s just something about a championship teams, when they seem to be completely pushed to the ledge they find a way to push back before finally falling off of it.

I saw just enough in the Eagles offense last week to think they’ve realized that they can survive by running the ball and controlling the clock. Both teams will try to do that today. It’s why I think the best play is under 45 – because neither team will feel comfortable putting this division on the line in a track meet. And I think the Eagles have just enough to survive for one more week – because the next two weeks won’t be pretty. Eagles 23, Cowboys 19 (Eagles +3.5).

Bob: Eagles 31, Cowboys 17 (Eagles +3.5).

Russ: Full disclosure: I want the Eagles to win and I need big days from Zeke and Amari to move forward in my fantasy football playoffs. The Eagles will win this game. They’ve played well in Dallas. Since 2010, the Eagles are 6-2 in Dallas, with the only loss coming in 2012. The Birds are 4-1 since the Cowboys moved into AT&T Stadium, having outscored Dallas 127-68 in their four victories (150-97 overall). This game is going to be a high-scoring affair and the Eagles will come out with confidence, while the Cowboys will be left wondering how they let this one get away. Eagles 45, Cowboys 38 (Eagles +3.5).

Kevin: Cowboys 24, Eagles 23 (Eagles +3.5).

Kyle: It’s hard to feel confident in any Eagles prediction, they continually underperform in most every scenario. However! Called me old fashioned (one cube, light stir), but I believe there is just enough fight left in this dog to, at the very least, provide one more thrill in 2018. In fact, that’s my score. Eagles 20, Cowboys 18 (Eagles +3.5).

        How in hell does Ray Diddy get in NFL HOF, let alone rich pencil necked geeks like the Maras and the Rooneys?
        Did these clowns sweat and bleed on the gridiron?

          Ray D did win the writers award, but that does not make him a member.

    what a complete kiss-ass show that Eagles postgame live has turned into. Right now they’re crying about the referees and saying they cost them the game. What fucking game were they watching???

    Great to see game updates on CB. 1030pm and no updates. Guess the copy and paste functions are working on theses “Writers” computers.
    I guess we can all read more about the sports books.
    At least we won’t need to see playoff tee shirts this year

      Scouring twitter for hot takes to reheat is hard work. We’re tired.
