An exciting NFC East matchup awaits us in week 16 of the NFL Regular Season when the 6-8 Philadelphia Eagles take of the 8-6 Dallas Cowboys on December24th, 2011.
The Cowboys are -1.5 point favorites with a total of 50.5 for this game, available at Bodog Sportsbook.
The NFC East is still up for grabs and all of sudden the Philadelphia Eagles step into the playoff scenario. If results got their way in the final two weeks of regular season we could be looking at the Eagles as Division Champions, on their way to the post season. It all starts with a familiar foe this Christmas Eve when they visit the Dallas Cowboys.
Vick has now carved up the Ryan brothers (Rob and Rex) twice this season, scoring seemingly at will. Can he do it a third time? Not much Rob can learn from Rex after last week. Felix Jones in the screen game against Philly’s lesser linebackers will be key. Plenty of ballhawks in Philly’s beleaguered secondary to make Tony Romo nervous. Both coaches have been under fire for late-game decisions and clock management. The Eagles have been a better team on the road than at home; the Cowboys have had some epic collapses already in the brief history of their new stadium.
Philadelphia is 6-3 SU in its last 9 games on the road
The total has gone OVER in 9 of Philadelphia’s last 13 games on the road
Philadelphia is 2-4 SU in its last 6 games when playing Dallas
Philadelphia is 2-4 ATS in its last 6 games when playing Dallas

Both teams have very capable offenses that will be clicking on all cylinders for this game. At the end we believe that Philly extends their hopes for at least one more week by beating the Cowboys on the Road. Bet the Eagles plus the points.
