Date: Sunday, Oct. 16, 2022
Time: 8:20 p.m. ET
Venue: Lincoln Financial Field — Philadelphia, PA
Week 6 of the 2022 NFL season includes an NFC East-centric Sunday Night Football showdown between the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles. The Cowboys are one of the hottest teams in the league, winning four straight games after picking up a 22-10 victory against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 5.
Meanwhile, the Eagles remain the NFL's sole undefeated team following their 20-17 win against the Arizona Cardinals. Quarterback Jalen Hurts recorded both of his team's rushing touchdowns on the day, while tight end Dallas Goedert paced Philly with 95 receiving yards on 8 catches.

Cowboys vs Eagles Prediction & Pick
Although the Cowboys have won three straight games against the Eagles, this isn't the Philadelphia team of old. The Eagles have improved significantly on both sides of the ball since the most recent meeting with their NFC East rival last year, sitting inside the top seven when it comes to both points scored (fifth) and fewest points allowed (seventh).
The Cowboys' defense has been solid as well, but their offense is another story. Despite Cooper Rush's perfect start, Dallas ranks 24th in the NFL with only 18.6 points per game.
There's no guarantee that Dak Prescott will be back by the weekend and if Rush is forced to draw the next start, I don't think he has it in him to keep up with Jalen Hurts and the Eagles' high-flying offense.
As decent as Dallas has looked, expect Philadelphia to improve to 6-0 here.
Final Score Prediction: Eagles: 23 | Cowboys: 17

Cowboys vs Eagles Best Bet
While I expect the Eagles to be victorious, there are a few ways that things could unfold. Dallas' defense is more than good enough to keep things close, but its offense is also inconsistent enough that things could get out of hand in Philadelphia's favor if Rush doesn't have the game of his life.
I feel good about the Eagles covering the spread, but I also like the idea of taking a potential Philly win margin of 1-13 points at +140 odds.
Bet: Eagles Win Margin - 1 to 13 Points (+140)
