The Cowboys will face the Eagles in Game 2 of ESPN’s “Monday Night Football: Doubleheader Saturday” in Week 18.
Both teams have already clinched playoff spots. Cowboys take fourth NFC seed and Eagles take seventh NFC seed before the game. If the Cowboys win on Saturday night and the Buccaneers, Cardinals and Rams lose on Sunday, that will push the Cowboys into the second seed. Either way, they won’t fall below the fourth seed since they won the NFC East.
The Eagles sit at the seventh seed although the sixth seed has yet to be decided for the NFC side of the playoffs. The Eagles could move up to sixth if the 49ers lose to the Rams and the Saints beat the Falcons, meaning the Saints would jump into the playoffs in seventh seed.
Jalen Hurts will be out for the game, including various other Eagles starters, to rest for the playoffs.
The Cowboys beat the Eagles 41-21 in their previous meeting this season. The Cowboys opened as a seven-point favorites, according to DraftKings Sportsbook.
