The Cowboys will face the Eagles in Game 2 of ESPN’s “Monday Night Football: Doubleheader Saturday” in Week 18.
Both teams have already secured playoff spots. The Cowboys take the fourth seed in the NFC and the Eagles take the seventh seed in the NFC heading into the matchup. If the Cowboys win on Saturday night, and the Buccaneers, Cardinals and Rams lose on Sunday, it would push the Cowboys to the second seed. Still, they won’t fall below the fourth seed since winning the NFC East.
The Eagles sit at the seventh seed even though the sixth seed has yet to be decided for the NFC side of the playoff seeds. The Eagles could move to sixth place if the 49ers lose to the Rams and the Saints beat the Falcons, meaning the Saints would jump onto the playoff scene at the seventh seed.
Jalen Hurts will sit down for the game, including several 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 favorites by seven points, according to DraftKings Sportsbook.
