EAGLES SOFT SCHEDULE AFTER COWBOYS, 82% NFC EAST TITLE CHANCE!

By Max Harper

Here’s how ESPN’s computers and humans assess the Eagles and Cowboys before Sunday night’s showdown in Dallas:

Eagles

Chance to win division: 82.0%
Remaining strength of schedule: 28th toughest

Why they can win the division:

The Eagles have the best record in football despite Sunday’s setback against the San Francisco 49ers.

They control their destiny, and their schedule begins to ease up after back-to-back road games at the Cowboys and the Seattle Seahawks, as they close the regular season with games against the Giants and the Cardinals. — Tim McManus

 

Cowboys

Chance to win division: 18.0%
Remaining strength of schedule: Third toughest

Why they can win the division:

Well, they’re hot. They’ve won four straight games. The offense is piling up points.

History is on their side:

No team has won the NFC East in consecutive years since the Eagles from 2001-04.

But even a win this week helps only temporarily. The Eagles have such a soft close to the season that the Cowboys will need help in winning the division. — Todd Archer
