While Philadelphia fell against the Arizona Cardinals 33-26 in Sunday’s NFL matchup, rookie quarterback Jalen Hurts played fantastic football for the second straight week since taking over as the starting signal-caller. The former Alabama and Oklahoma star passed for a stellar 338 yards with three TD passes and a rushing score for good measure.
“He led the team. He played mentally and physically tough,” Eagles coach Doug Pederson said. “He’s an extremely hard worker. He’s diligent. He wants to improve. Hurts took the loss (Sunday) very personally. He wants to get back out there and keep going.”

Dallas has won two straight and three of five including a 41-33 home win over San Francisco on Sunday. Veteran quarterback Andy Dalton passed for 209 yards with two TD passes and no interceptions while Tony Pollard rushed for 69 yards and two scores in the win. Over the last five games, Dalton has completed 66.1% of his passes for 1,097 yards with 10 touchdowns and three interceptions.
“He’s doing a great job, and certainly we’d love to have him back,” Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones said following Sunday’s win.
Here is a look at the latest NFL division title odds.
While Dallas has won two straight, I’m not impressed with their wins coming against the injury-riddled Bengals and 49ers the last two weeks. For me, Philadelphia looks a lot better and far more dangerous with Hurts under center than they ever have under Carson Wentz.
The Cowboys have gone 2-4 SU in its last six home games and 3-6 SU in its last nine games overall. While Philadelphia is 1-5 SU over its last six and 2-4 SU in its last six meetings against Dallas, I like the Birds to get the regular season sweep simply because they have the better defense – and quarterback.
Pick: Eagles to Win

Eagles (5-9) | Cowboys (4-10)
Philly is 0-5 ATS in their last five road games. But, the Eagles are also 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS loss. While Dallas has gone 6-0 ATS in its last six games as a home underdog, the Cowboys are also 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games against their NFC East division rivals.
With the favorite in this longtime rivalry going 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings and the spread set at a manageable 2½ points, I think Philly is offering some great value!

Over/Under 49½ Points
Eagles (6-8) | Cowboys (8-6)
The Eagles have played Over the total in both games with Hurts under center while putting at least 24 points on the board in each game. The Over is 4-1 in Philadelphia’s last 5 games as a road favorite and a consistent 31-15 in their last 46 road games overall.
The Over is 4-1 in Dallas’ last five games and 7-2 in the Cowboys’ last nine home games. Dallas’ pitiful defense has allowed 33 points or more in five of its last 10 games. I like the Bird to put at least 30 points on the board in this one while Dallas contributes to the likely Over outcome.
Prediction: Eagles 31, Cowboys 21
