Well it’s that time of year again, Eagles vs. Cowboys. This week marks that point in the season when trash talking is normally at its highest point but for some reason the Cowboy fans have been a little quite this year. I wonder if it’s because they realize that the season is over. That the injuries have finally caught up, that the suspension of Zeke is just too much, and that they have the inferior quarterback. Asking Prescott to carry the team is too much to ask of the young man. Plus having no talent at the left tackle will enable the Eagles to get to the young QB all day.
I almost feel bad for what is about to happen. Many believe that this is the game that the Cowboys get back on track. The story sounds good, a banged up team who is desperate for a win. The Narrative of writing how the Cowboys overcame so much to get the big win basically writes itself. But in the end it’s just a fictional story, something that you hope to tell your kids at night so that they sleep well.
I am sorry to break the news but this is going to be a nightmare for the Cowboys. Like Freddy Krueger huanting them in their dreams. The Eagles are coming off a bye week and only got healthier. Ronald Darby is back and Jay Ajayi has had more time to get into the play book. The Eagles are going to go down to Dallas and tear them apart. The Eagles will pressure Prescott all day, destroy what running game they have left, and shred the defense with an amazingly balanced offensive attack. The Eagles are built for a run in the post season and the Cowboys are built to watch it from their Lazy Boy chairs.
The Eagles will dominate the clock today with a heavy dose of Ajayi and Blount. This will break the will and spirit of the Cowboys. Carson will throw at least two more TD’s today brining him to 25 TD’s on the season. Ajayi gets in the end zone again and has over 100 yards on the ground. Blount also gets in today with a goal line score. The Cowboys are done for this year and after Sunday night the whole nation will get to see it.
Final Score 33-10. Eagles
