Even after Sunday’s tough road loss to the Arizona Cardinals, the Eagles remain squarely in contention for the NFC East after Washington and New York both suffered defeats on Sunday as well.

Hurts ability to impact both the running and passing game has given the Eagles an eraser for their mistakes upfront and on Sunday, he’ll travel home to the state of Texas, in hopes of giving the Eagles a clean sweep over the Cowboys this season.

If the Eagles can again protect the football and play stout on defense, they should win the game and focus on Washington for all the marbles in Week 17.

The Hurts affect is real and Per BetMGM, the Eagles are opening up as 1.5-point road favorites.

Philadelphia sits 1½ games back of the first-place Washington Football Team with two to play, and they’ll need Washington to lose to Carolina, while also needing the Giants to lose one of the final two games.

With the mobile Hurts in the lineup, the Eagles are averaging 25.0 PPG in his two games, almost four points better than when Carson Wentz is in the lineup.

During their week 8 matchup, the Eagles battered rookie quarterback Ben DiNucci, as Philadelphia secured a 23-9 win while covering the 10.5-point spread.
