An NFC East showdown will commence between the Eagles and Cowboys at Jerry’s World, with both entering the game holding 1-1 records.
The two key matchups to watch will be the Cowboys' linebackers versus quarterback Jalen Hurts, and the Eagles’ secondary versus the Cowboys’ talented wide receiver duo of Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb.
Hurts has been spectacular in many ways through two weeks. The second-year quarterback’s 87.5 PFF grade ranks second at the position, and he’s top 10 in both big-time throw percentage and turnover-worthy play percentage. The Eagles’ offensive line has been a major reason why, as Hurts leads the NFL with a 3.11-second average time to throw.
Meanwhile, the Cowboys have struggled to limit two of the better quarterbacks in the NFL this season, allowing Tom Brady and Justin Herbert to throw for a combined 718 passing yards. On top of their poor 25th-ranked opponent-adjusted defensive Massey rating, the Cowboys' linebackers — a unit that was a weakness even before Micah Parsons moved to defensive end — will need to play much better than its current 53.0 run-defense grade to stop limit Hurts' dual-threat ability.
