The Eagles are on a 2-4-1 record and sit atop the NFC East Division table ahead of the Washington football team with the Dallas Cowboys in third place. The odds are against the Cowboys. But can quarterback Carson Wentz do enough to secure a victory for the Eagles?

Stephen A. Smith embarks on all-out rant about the Dallas Cowboys
On the last installment of First take of ESPN, popular sports analysts Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman were there again. The subject of the debate was Sunday’s game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles.
Here’s what Smith said about Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy.
“The Dallas Cowboys have the worst defense in football. Worst running defense in football, one of the five worst defenses in yards allowed, worst in runs allowed, worst in rushing yards allowed… then we go to the offensive side of the ball. Dak Prescott is gone, Ezekiel Elliott nosedive mainly because you have a completely wiped out offensive line in terms of injuries and as a result you have subs that just aren’t up for the challenge.
“With a new coach that the players don’t initially feel, with an owner / general manager insulting the radio hosts… let me clear it up, is it Mike McCarthy who’s under pressure?” Smith said at the start of the show.
Of course, McCarthy will be under pressure to get the desired results from his star team. However, Carson Wentz could play with his job on the line.
A home win this weekend will help the Eagles gain momentum as they aim to advance to the playoffs for the second straight season.
