After winning the NFC East for the second time in three seasons last year, the Philadelphia Eagles expected a lot from themselves in 2020. The season haven’t gone as planned thus far, but they still occupy first place in the division despite a 2-4-1 record. The Eagles will attempt to remain there when they host a bitter enemy in the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. Kickoff from Lincoln Financial Field is set for 8:20 p.m. ET.
The Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles have a lot in common. They both play in the NFC East. Neither of them is very good. Both teams are riddled with injuries. And now, they both could have FCS quarterbacks leading their offenses. Oh yeah — and they both have only two wins apiece halfway through the season but can still win their division with a win on Sunday night. Isn’t the NFC East just so fun!?
Sunday Night Football: Dallas at Philadelphia
Kickoff: Sunday, Nov. 1, 8:20 p.m. ET
Spread: Eagles -11

1. Wentz on the rebound?
This year has been unkind to pretty much everyone, Carson Wentz included. The former North Dakota State Bison is in the midst of the worst statistical season of his career. He’s 30th in completion rate (58 percent), 28th in passer rating (74.3), and last in both interceptions (10) and sacks taken (28). For a little bit more clarity, 21 percent of Wentz’s throws have been rated as bad passes by Pro Football Reference. The only other quarterbacks to have a higher percentage of poor throws are Dwayne Haskins Jr., who isn’t even dressing for games right now, and Drew Lock. Not quite the bronze medal you want to be wearing if you’re a franchise quarterback.
2. Ben DiNucci?
No, I’m asking you. Who is Ben DiNucci? Because before last week, I’m not sure if anyone else on the Cowboys roster knew who he was either.
DiNucci is likely going to make his first start in a game since he led the Dukes of James Madison to the FCS National Championship Game in 2019. The rookie seventh-round pick was thrown to the wolves — well, the Washington Football Team — last week when Andy Dalton suffered a concussion after taking a dirty hit to the head from Washington linebacker Jon Bostic with six minutes left in the third quarter. DiNucci completed two of his three passing attempts but was sacked three times and fumbled twice in his debut. Welcome to the League, rook.

3. Despite all the options, streaming football games can be a hassle if you previously relied on Reddit
The 2020 NFL season is really beginning to take shape. There’s been a number of surprising performances, but when the Jets are winless through 7 games, it all feels so familiar.
After the Seahawks and Titans lost last week, the Pittsburgh Steelers are the only undefeated team remaining. They’ll travel to Baltimore this week in a rivalry game against Lamar Jackson and the Ravens.
He also has been uncanny with his picks involving the Cowboys. In fact, he is 7-2 in his last nine against-the-spread picks involving Dallas. Roberts nailed Arizona over the Cowboys in Week 6 and the Giants covering against Dallas in Week 5. Anyone who has followed him is way up.
Now, he has locked in on and released a confident against-the-spread pick that is only available at SportsLine.. Here are the and trends for Eagles vs. Cowboys:
- Eagles vs. Cowboys spread: Philadelphia -10.5
- Eagles vs. Cowboys over-under: 42.5 points
- Eagles vs. Cowboys money line: Philadelphia -410, Dallas +330
- PHI: Eagles are 0-5 against the spread in their last five games as home favorites
- DAL: Cowboys have yet to cover the spread this season
Why the Eagles can cover
Quarterback had his most productive game of the year last week, throwing for a season-high 359 yards and a pair of touchdowns, both in the final 4:38 of the fourth quarter. The 27-year-old from North Dakota State, who has a pair of TD tosses in his last three games, also opened the scoring with his team-leading fifth rushing touchdown of 2020. It was the third career game with at least 350 passing yards for Wentz, who has run for a score in four consecutive home games.
