The NFC East could start to be decided on NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” in Week 8 when the Dallas Cowboys host the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Eagles (2-4-1) travel to Dallas (2-5) with a half-game lead in the division while the Washington Football Team (2-5) is on a Week 8 bye. That means whoever wins Sunday night’s game will hold the division edge about halfway through the year. The Cowboys will have to do it with either a recovered-from-concussion Andy Dalton or a rookie Ben DiNucci at quarterback, which gives the Eagles and edge thanks to the solid recent play of Carson Wentz.
Dallas just lost to the WFT in Week 7, 25-3, a result that forced both Jerry and Stephen Jones to publicly back head coach Mike McCarthy during his first-season struggles. The Eagles just edged out the New York Giants on Thursday Night Football in Week 7, 22-21, thanks to two late touchdown passes from Wentz.
Ezekiel Elliott’s play will surely be one of the storylines in Sunday’s game since the Cowboys will need to take the load off their lesser QB play, but if ‘Zeke’s fumbling woes pop up again, it could be a long night for Dallas.
Below is everything to know about this week’s “Sunday Night Football” game between the Cowboys and Eagles in Week 8.
