8* Under Cowboys/Eagles (1:00 ET): Dallas turned in a remarkably efficient offensive performance last week, scoring 42 points on one of the top defenses in the league (Detroit). But we know that we won't be seeing their full compliment of skill position players on the field for Week 17 as America's Team has nothing to play for here w/ the #1 seed in the NFC all wrapped up. Most notably, there will be a change at the QB position w/ Dak Prescott giving way to Mark Sanchez and, yes, Tony Romo. While there is no official word on how long some of the key players will play, if they play at all, I expect the most vanilla of gameplans for the Cowboys in the regular season finale. There is just no incentive for them to try. Take the Under.
The Eagles might be out of contention, but I actually view them as one of the top non-playoff teams. They were my top play for Week 16 when they hosted the Giants last Thursday and delivered in kind w/ a 24-19 "upset." (Though they actually closed as the favorite). The key to that correct call and this one as well is that Philly has a very good defense. At home, they're giving up an average of only 15.9 points per game. However, the offense has its issues. QB Carson Wentz may have hit the proverbial "rookie wall" some time ago as he has an ugly 5-11 TD-INT ratio the L8 games. The team's top two running backs (Ryan Matthews, Darren Sproles) are both out here. Remember that LW, the team needed a defensive score just to get to 24 points as the offense gained less than 300 total yards. In terms of yards per play, this offense ranks fifth worst in the league.
The Eagles' 29-23 loss at Dallas in Week 8 is what started their swoon. While that game was high scoring, note it went to overtime after Philly blew a 10-point fourth quarter lead. That being said, it was another game that they gained fewer than 300 total yards. The Cowboys had nearly 500, but sources are now saying Ezekiel Elliot will be limited to only a handful of snaps here and that's key because he accounted for almost 150 of those yards in that first meeting. Also, the Dallas' D is quietly allowing only 18.6 PPG this year and 81.5 rush yds per game, which is tops in the league! The Under is 5-2 for them this season in road games. 10* Under Cowboys/Eagles
