5 Bold Predictions for Philadelphia Eagles' Week 17 Matchup

The stage is set for an epic Week 17 battle between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys, with the winner taking home the NFC East crown and hosting a January playoff game.

Chip Kelly’s Eagles are fresh off a 54-11 demolition of the Chicago Bears, one in which the offense ran all over the Bears’ bottom-ranked defense. Meanwhile, the Cowboys barely edged the Washington Redskins, doing so on a last-second game-winning touchdown pass by quarterback Tony Romo.

Romo’s status for this game is very much in doubt, as ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported earlier this week that he was out for the matchup against Philadelphia. Jason Garrett says otherwise, but it’s unlikely that he'll suit up considering the severity of his injury.

The Eagles should win this game, and they will win this game. The offense is playing too well for the Cowboys’ 32nd-ranked defense to stop, and Kelly is simply a better coach than Garrett. He’ll have his team prepared, and the result will be another high-powered offensive output from Philly.
