Eagles vs. Cowboys Point Spread: NFL Week 11 Prediction, Pick

Aubrey Yates
November 14, 2017

The Eagles defense has already been one of the top units in the National Football League through nine games this season.

But Ertz might be limited on Sunday, if he even plays at all.

Schwartz has also leaned heavily on his corners playing off coverage, capitalizing on a dominant pass rush that's forced quarterbacks to get rid of the ball quickly or pay the price.

Wentz, meanwhile, has a 60.5 percent completion rate and 2,262 yards passing, with 23 touchdowns and five picks.

"Eagles had the best bye week of any team this year". No playlist about the football team Eagles would be complete without a song by the band of the same name, and the Eagles' long winning streak is nearly as popular with fans as "The Long Run" is with middle-aged white guys. Although, they did lose their best defensive player Richard Sherman to a torn Achilles in the game. He has way more yards rushing than Goff, but hasn't scored with his legs yet - odd with how good he's been on the ground - losing two fumbles.

For all the pressure the Eagles have generated, they rank just 18th in sacks per pass attempt and 13th in yards per pass against them.

The Seahawks feature higher than their division leading counterpart on this list because they've beaten the Rams head to head this season and they're playoff veterans with a well-known (though lately questioned) home-field advantage. That said, there's something different about this team.

Coming off their bye week, the Eagles remained the across-the-board top-ranked team in the NFL, according to power rankings from national outlets. Between an ever-improving offense and an elite defense led by Fletcher Cox and Malcolm Jenkins, the streets of Philly are abuzz every Sunday. It might be with good reason, too.

What makes the Saints so hot? The average score during their win streak? New Orleans lost to the Vikings in Week 1 then the Patriots a week later, but since then they've looked awesome, giving up 12 or fewer points each of the last three weeks and allowing 17 or less in six of their last seven games.

As a newcomer who's been out of the game, Ellerbe understands he's in no position to dictate where he plays or whether he will be required to contribute on special teams for the first time since 2012, when he was on his way to a Super Bowl championship with the Baltimore Ravens.

The Eagles were chugging along without Darby but they're about to begin a pretty tough part of their schedule as they make a push to become the NFC's top seed. The Eagles have a great opportunity to all but wrap up the division title, which is already a near certainty.

Likewise, Darby says that despite the gruesome nature of his injury and extended rehab - with the target date being eight weeks post-injury to return - he doesn't think about his ankle or feel much of a difference when he's been out on the field.

Of course, the Eagles are thinking only about Dallas, and rightfully so.

A poor offensive performance Sunday night will nearly guarantee Dallas a loss at home. That was the last game before Philadelphia's bye week, giving Ertz a chance to recover.
