Eagles Injury Report: WR Alshon Jeffery Is Questionable For Sunday Night Vs

20 November, 2017, 02:46 | Author: Joan Malone
  • The Eagles Wire staff predictions Week 11- Eagles vs. Cowboys

The bottom line is that the Cowboys need to do a better job of protecting Prescott against the Eagles.

Philadelphia has scored at least 26 points in eight of its nine games this season, the lone exception being a 27-20 loss to the Chiefs back in Week 2.

The Eagles should be able to score on this Dallas defence minus Lee.

Friday marked the final full practice for the Eagles before they square off with the Cowboys (5-4) on Sunday night, a game which presents an opportunity to deliver a significant blow to a rival's playoff chances. They've got to be able to hold Philadelphia to a manageable amount of points if the Cowboys are going to be able to win this game.

Head coach Jason Garrett of the Dallas Cowboys, left, shakes hands with head coach Doug Pederson of the Philadelphia Eagles after a game at Lincoln Financial Field on January 1, 2017 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. If Smith can't play, Dallas likely turns to Byron Bell after he replaced Chaz Green at left tackle versus Atlanta. Quarterback Dak Prescott had little time to get the ball away against the Falcons, and the Eagles front seven is arguably more unsafe.

Better preparation should help the Cowboys to begin with, but that Eagles front seven is very strong and they can take advantage of the weaknesses now springing up in the Cowboys offensive line. But if he breaks off a couple big runs on broken plays or even designed runs - don't be surprised to see that happen - and finishes with 40-plus yards again, it's going to be almost impossible for them to hit the under. However, Dallas fell behind by double-digits in the third quarter and Morris was limited to 11 touches.

As we've seen with Wentz - and other young quarterbacks over the years - managing pass attempts is crucial. Carson Wentz looks like a veteran in only his second season, Alshon Jeffrey has given their receiving game greater depth, LeGarette Blount has made their running game tougher, and their defence is shutting down opponents. According to Pro Football Focus, his 135.5 passer rating on intermediate throws is the best in the NFL. Smith has 15 catches for 221 yards and one touchdown this season. The Eagles have a good pass rush and I think that will be a problem here. Ajayi had eight carries for 77 yards and a touchdown in his debut for Philadelphia a couple of weeks ago. As a matter of fact, in Cowboys history, only twice have they won a game when they've scored no more than 7 points.

If the Eagles win this game, they are basically division champs. As such, I like Over 26.5 points on the Away Team Total Points market on the Sportsbook at 5/6.

Sunday night's total is set at 48 points.
