Dallas Cowboys eager to down divisional nemesis on home turf

The return of franchise quarterback Dak Prescott has sparked a revolution for the Dallas Cowboys. The NFC East old boys look like a whole other team with Dak as their starting QB. The likes of Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb have also rediscovered their rhythm.

Although, more is expected from running back Ezekiel Elliott who is again under immense criticism this year. But a strong defensive display will guarantee the Cowboys a smooth win over their eternal rivals.

Philadelphia Eagles looking for statement win against rivals

Nike Sirianni’s Philadelphia Eagles suffered a loss in Week 2 against Kyle Shanahan’s San Francisco 49ers. Rookie wide receiver DeVonta Smith had a game to forget. However, second-year quarterback Jalen Hurts has shown signs of promise as was evident in the opening day win over the Atlanta Falcons.

The Eagles need to put in a perfect defensive display to outsmart their divisional opponents. The likes of Alex Singleton, Darius Slay, and Marcus Epps, need to have a perfect day at the office. Especially, in front of rival fans.
