Dallas Cowboys vs Philadelphia Eagles will take place on Sunday in Week 7 of the NFL 2013 regular season, in a clash that will decide who takes control of the NFC East. The game is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The Cowboys and Eagles are the top two teams in a surprisingly lackluster NFC East division this season. Even though both teams are just 3-3 they are doing much better than the 1-4 Washington Redskins, and infinitely better than the 0-6 New York Giants.
This clash means that finally one team from the division will be able to go above .500 – however, for the losers today they again will slip back under.
The Cowboys will be looking to build some momentum now following their solid 31-16 win over the Redskins last week. Despite Dallas lacking against teams from other divisions, they have been very successful in the NFC East – defeating both the Giants and the Redskins so far, and they will want to complete a sweep of the division today.
The Dallas offense has been firing on all cylinders over the past few weeks, scoring 48 against the Denver Broncos – even though they still lose 48-51 – and posting 31 points in last week's game. That means they are averaging 39.5 points per game over the past two weeks, and through the season they are averaging 30.5 points per game. That's enough to rank them number 2 in the league, behind only Peyton Manning and his Broncos.
Of course Tony Romo has had a central role in their offensive success. He is 153 of 218 for 1,693 yards and 14 touchdowns. Dez Bryant has been the top receiver, receiving 34 times for 459 yards and six touchdowns.
The Cowboys' game today is being touted by some to be one of the games of the day in the NFL, as the Eagles have also had one of the top offenses in the league this season. The Eagles are averaging 27.7 points per game – ranking them 4th in the NFL, and 449.8 yards in total per game – ranking them 3rd in total yards per game.
The Eagles have used both the pass and rush to knock back opposition defenses, and they are currently the number 1 ranked rush team in the league, averaging 178.5 yards per game. LeSean McCoy has carried 123 for 630 yards and three touchdowns to lead the rush for the Eagles.
However, the Eagles are not only relying on the rush, and on the pass they are also ranked a high 9th in the NFL, posting 271.3 yards per game on pass. Michael Vick was 71 of 132 for 1,185 yards and 5 touchdowns, but he is now out injured, and his injury is more serious than initially anticipated. That leaves Nick Foles to lead the way, and the Cowboys will be looking to press him and try and stop him from striking deep.
This could be the highest scoring game of the day in the NFL, and features two teams who have not been afraid to let loose when going on the attack.
