Cowboys vs Eagles — Over/Under Reactions

It’s been a gloomy week in , but the match-up we have all been waiting for is finally here. The (10-4) are set to take on the (13-1) tomorrow on Christmas Eve.

Let’s dive into the over/under reactions headed into this showdown.

OVERREACTION

The Cowboys’ will be a nightmare before Christmas.

The argument has been the focal point of the media all week long, whether QB or WR was the reason for the Cowboys’ late interception that cost them the game against the . What not many people are talking about is the Cowboys’ defense surrendering more than 500 yards and allowing the Jaguars to claw back and take the lead late in the game.

This Cowboys’ defense is not the defense we have seen the majority of the season, and it’s a fair assessment to say that have played a part in their lack of success. However, this defense still employs LB and CB who have been awfully quiet over the last few games. With the Eagles missing their -frontrunner, QB for this game, there should be plenty of opportunities for Micah Parsons and this defense to re-discover their game-wrecking tendencies.

Cowboys WR will make an impact for this .

The Cowboys absolutely needed newly signed WR T.Y. Hilton to be available last Sunday against the Jaguars. This week, he should be ready to go and make an immediate impact on this offense. Hilton, known for his speed, has the capability to be a deep ball threat and help spread out this offense to give the other receivers more opportunities to make plays.

WR has yet to flourish this season as the clear WR2 since returning from his sustained earlier this year. While the Cowboys do need to get Gallup more involved, it seems as if he is struggling to get open and become a reliable target for Dak Prescott. With the Eagles not having much film to rely on as to how to cover T.Y. Hilton in this Cowboys offense, I expect Hilton to make a few explosive plays down the field that will help this offense get rolling.

Hilton just might be an early Christmas present delivered to the Cowboys right in time for the .

On paper, with NFL high seven “pro bowlers”, playing at home, the other team missing their QB1, and adding another WR for DP, shouldn’t be a whole lot of resistance, right?
