It’s time to find your dog masks, Eagles fans. The Birds will fly down to Dallas this weekend for a chance at first place in the NFC East when they take on the Cowboys. It’s basically win and continue your chances for a playoff spot, or lose and your season is over for this Eagles team, as a loss will put them two games back of the Cowboys with three games remaining.
When the Eagles take the field at AT&T Stadium, they will be the underdogs, with the Cowboys favored to win.
There's already a spread at most sportsbooks for Eagles at Cowboys next Sunday. Most common line is Cowboys by 4.

The line has slightly moved since Monday, but the Cowboys are still a -3.5 line.
This isn’t unfamiliar territory for the Eagles, as they rode their underdog mantra last season all the way to a Super Bowl win over the New England Patriots. This year when they ended up being favored in most of their games, the Eagles ended up playing terribly and lost those games. Now with the odds against them, we will see if they can revert back to the way they were last year, and win when everyone is doubting them.
