In a crucial division match-up the 2-4 Philadelphia Eagles will host the Dallas Cowboys (3-3) on Sunday Night Football on NBC. The Eagles are coming off of a bye week; they have never lost a game following a bye during Andy Reid's tenure as head coach (12-0). The Cowboys are coming off a blowout victory against the winless St. Louis Rams in which rookie DeMarco Murray rushed for 253 yards in his first career NFL start.
The Eagles opened as three point favorites on OddsShark.com and remain three point favorites on most sites. Home field advantage is typically worth three points in odds-making, so this line basically entails the Cowboys and Eagles are dead even.
Starting running back Felix Jones remains for the Cowboys with a high ankle sprain. Rookie DeMarco Murray will likely receive the start, but share carries with Tashard Choice and Phillip Tanner.
Tony Romo has a career record of 5-3 against the Eagles, including 2-1 in Philadelphia.
