The Philadelphia Eagles are gearing up for a dog fight in Week 14 on Sunday Night Football against the NFC East division rival Dallas Cowboys. Both teams are legitimate Super Bowl contenders this season and their first matchup ended in a hard-fought 28-23 win by Philadelphia.
After falling to the San Francisco 49ers last week by a final score of 42-19, this game may be even more significant for the Eagles. Getting their mojo back down the stretch is a must. Heading into the playoffs on an inconsistent basis is never a recipe for success.
One Eagles’ legend, running back LeSean McCoy, knows how important this game is for the Eagles.

While the Eagles are not facing a “must-win” scenario from the general idea of the term, they do need this win. A loss in blowout fashion like the one they had last week can be a massive setback for a team. Being able to head into Dallas and beat the Cowboys would give the Eagles a spark for the stretch run.
Not only would it give them a spark, Philadelphia is also fighting for the No. 1 seed in the playoffs. They’re also fighting for the NFC East division title.
Dallas has been playing extremely well of late as well. The Eagles have their work cut out for them. Beating a team twice in one season is never an easy task.
In order to come away with this win, the Eagles will need their offense to figure out their struggles. Hurts simply has not been on the same page with AJ Brown and DeVonta Smith consistently. That needs to be ironed out as soon as possible and the defense will need to put pressure on Dak Prescott.
Make sure to tune in on Sunday Night Football to see Philadelphia and Dallas go at it. This has the makings of a classic rivalry game that no football fan will want to miss.
