The Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys couldn’t be more similar.
Both teams are 3-3 and tied for first place in the NFC East entering Sunday’s game at the Linc. Both teams are 2-0 in the division. Both teams are 0-3 against the AFC West, losing to Denver, Kansas City and San Diego.
Their passing offenses are ranked sixth and seventh, respectively. Their scoring averages are in the top five. Their defenses are 30th and 32nd overall. They each have 45 penalties and are their turnover margins are plus-4 and plus-2.
Something has to give this weekend.
It really is interesting how similar the teams are this year. Of course, the odd part is that the Eagles are coming off a 4-12 season and made lots of changes. Dallas was hoping to be a playoff team this year.
