Looks like the Cowboys fanatic Skip Bayless still doesn’t believe in the Jalen Hurts-led Philadelphia Eagles, despite their ten wins this season. As his team, the Dallas Cowboys, set to face the Eagles next month in week 14, he has already started picking his bias.
When it comes to favoring Dallas, the sports analyst never holds his mind from speaking out. And now, he has chosen to take a dig at the division-leading Philadelphia. In the latest episode of Undisputed, he claimed the Cowboys are far more superior than the Eagles and the latter’s victories are nothing but luck.
I'm gonna unleash about the Eagles, who just played the luckiest four games in NFL history--Four Straight they have trailed to halftime..and four straight times they won by getting badly outgained. In these last four, the Eagles have been outgained by an average of 430 yards to just 321 for Jalen Hurts offense.
Bayless believes the Eagles have been living on the edge without failing, resulting in more wins, though he believes “their luck will run out.” Whether Bayless is right with his words or not will be decided in week 14 when these two will face off against each other.
For now, it’s safe to say that the Philadelphia Eagles have come out more strongly this season, after facing defeat at last season’s Super Bowl. With an outstanding 10-1, the team is leading the NFC, while the Cowboys are at 8-3.
How the Cowboys and Eagles stack up against each other in the NFC East
When a matchup includes as big teams as the Cowboys and Eagles, the comparison is definitely not a surprise. As both are ranked in the top two slots of the NFC East division, their week 14 matchup is going to be grand.
However, for this season, Dallas may not have a near comparison with Philly, who have recorded back-to-back wins. Although most of the team’s wins are blowout records, several have been narrow ones.
The unbeatable Eagles have recorded 4007 total yards at an average of 364.3 yards per game along with 36 touchdowns in 11 games. However, the Cowboys have an upper hand here with 4,154 total yards at 377.6 yards per game average and 40 touchdowns.
If the statistics are taken in mind, then the points Bayless highlighted may be taken into consideration. As the Cowboys are leading, however, as the analyst said about ‘luck’, it sure is important.
