The Cowboys are in first place in the NFC East and that they’ve already beaten the Eagles once, but the Birds have the mojo to win the division.
Not only do the Eagles play four of their next five games at home, but they also still have three games left against the two bottom teams in the NFC East (They play the Giants twice and the Redskins once). Oh, and they also play the Dolphins, which is the closest thing you can get to a free win in the NFL.
The Cowboys, they have a brutal final stretch. Of the Cowboys final nine games, six of them will come against teams that are currently .500 or above (the Eagles have three). Although both teams have to play the Patriots and Bears, the Cowboys also have four tough games that the Eagles don’t have to worry about (Vikings, Rams, Bills and Lions). Basically, it feels like the Eagles are set up to steal the division title over the second half of the season.
