The Eagles bye week went relatively well for them: The Redskins and Cowboys both lost, Tim Jernigan returned to practice and looks like he will be playing his first game of the season soon, and the Redskins lost three key players for the rest of the season. In addition, players like Lane Johnson got a full week of rest to let their injuries heal naturally.
The Eagles will be going into their first game after the bye with a new weapon for Carson Wentz to use in Golden Tate. The addition of Tate combined with the Cowboys’ embarrassing loss to the Titans at home last night has led to casinos opening the Sunday Night Football betting line heavily in the Eagles favor.

A well rested Eagles team playing at home with an extra week to prepare going up against a struggling divisional rival Cowboys team. I’m not a betting man, but if I was, I’d put a lot of money on the Eagles covering the spread.
