Dal­las (3-5) at Philadel­phia (4-4)

The Saratogian (Saratoga, NY) - - SPORTS -

For the Cow­boys to stay real in the NFC East, they need a quick re­ver­sal of for­tune. With four of those five losses coming on the road, a visit to the Linc isn’t all that en­tic­ing.

These teams meet on “Sun­day Night Foot­ball” for the 10th con­sec­u­tive sea­son and 12th time over­all. Dal­las must find a pass­ing game some­where, and spring Ezekiel El­liott for some big plays, but the block­ing unit has de­clined sig­nif­i­cantly.

The de­fend­ing Su­per Bowl cham­pion Ea­gles are 17-5 at home un­der coach Doug Ped­er­son. Car­son Wentz has thrown at least one TD with no more than one in­ter­cep­tion in 21 straight games, tied with Matt Ryan for the long­est streak in NFL his­tory. He has a new tar­get in Golden Tate. The wide­out was ob­tained from Detroit, for which he had eight catches for 132 yards and two TDs vs. the Cow­boys on Sept. 30.
