Monday Night Football, Week 3. Tonight the Philadelphia Eagles travel to Arlington, Texas to take on the Dallas Cowboys.

The Eagles come into this game with a 1-1 record, coming off a tough 17 - 11 loss against the San Francisco 49ers last week. The Eagles young quarterback Jalen Hurts has gotten off to a good start, sporting a 108 passer rating, but it’s the defense that has really shone. The Eagles have allowed just 23 points in two games for a sparkling 11.5 average. They have achieved this by shutting down the pass, as the Eagles have allowed just 325 passing yards in two games. Tonight’s contest against the pass happy Dallas Cowboys will test the Eagles pass defense in ways they haven’t seen to date.

The Dallas Cowboys come into this game with a 1-1 record, fresh off a gritty 20 - 17 win over the Los Angeles Chargers. The Cowboys have playmakers all over the field and enough offensive firepower to stay with anyone. The Cowboys rank 2nd in the NFL in offensive yards, 5th in passing yards, 5th in rushing yards, and 1st in first downs. The defense, on the other hand, has been a liability thus far. The Cowboys’ defense ranks dead last in the NFL in passing yards and 29th in total yards allowed. This game shapes up as a classic match between a prolific offense and a tough defense.

It’s the Cowboys and the Eagles in a NFC East division rivalry game on Monday Night Football.

Enjoy the game everybody.
