NFL Week 16: Dallas Cowboys Favored Over Philadelphia Eagles

According to, the Dallas Cowboys are favored to beat the Philadelphia Eagles by 3.5 points when the two teams face in Cowboys Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The Cowboys are currently 8-6 and are holding on to the NFC's fourth seed as the top team in the NFC East. If they win out they're guaranteed a playoff spot and if they beat the Eagles and the Giants lose to the Jets they get a playoff spot regardless of what they do in Week 17.

After a terrible start, the Eagles now have a 6-8 record and are, surprisingly, in the hunt for a wildcard spot. They need some help but if they can tie the Giants and Cowboys at 8-8 for the division lead, they would have the tie breaker.

The Eagles are coming off a 45-19 win over the New York Jets and the Cowboys are coming off a 31-15 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This is a huge game for both teams.
