The Eagles (2-4-1) travel to Dallas (2-5) with a half-game lead in the division while the Washington Football Team (2-5) is on a Week 8 bye. That means whoever wins Sunday night’s game will hold the division edge about halfway through the year. The Cowboys will have to do it with either a recovered-from-concussion Andy Dalton or a rookie Ben DiNucci at quarterback, which gives the Eagles and edge thanks to the solid recent play of Carson Wentz.
Dallas just lost to the WFT in Week 7, 25-3, a result that forced both Jerry and Stephen Jones to publicly back head coach Mike McCarthy during his first-season struggles. The Eagles just edged out the New York Giants on Thursday Night Football in Week 7, 22-21, thanks to two late touchdown passes from Wentz.
Ezekiel Elliott’s play will surely be one of the storylines in Sunday’s game since the Cowboys will need to take the load off their lesser QB play, but if ‘Zeke’s fumbling woes pop up again, it could be a long night for Dallas.
Below is everything to know about this week’s “Sunday Night Football” game between the Cowboys and Eagles in Week 8.

What to Know
This Sunday, the Dallas Cowboys are hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 34.71 points per game. They will hit the road for the second straight week as they head to Lincoln Financial Field at 8:20 p.m. ET Sunday. Their scoring has been on the decline the past three games, which is obviously a trend the Philadelphia Eagles hope will continue.
Dallas has to be hurting after a devastating 25-3 loss at the hands of the Washington Football Team last week. QB Andy Dalton had a memorable game, but not in the way you want to be remembered: besides failing to produce a single touchdown, he threw one interception with only 3.95 yards per passing attempt.
Meanwhile, the Eagles slipped by the New York Giants 22-21 last Thursday. Philadelphia QB Carson Wentz was slinging it as he passed for two TDs and 359 yards on 43 attempts in addition to punching in one rushing touchdown. That was the first 300+ yard effort for Wentz this season.
The Cowboys are the clear underdogs, so they’re hoping it’s the size of the fight that determines this one. They have failed bettors playing the spread in all their past seven games, so buyers beware.
Dallas and the Eagles split their matches last season, with Dallas claiming a 37-10 win and Philadelphia retaliating with a 17-9 victory of their own. Check back on CBSSports.com for updates on how things play out this time around.
