With Ezekiel Elliott out, Eagles turn attention to Dak Prescott

  • Eagles OC Frank Reich reflects on pre-draft evaluation of Cowboys QB Dak Prescott

On Sunday night the Cowboys and Eagles will face off for the first time this season.

The suspension of Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has obviously shaken the team's world.

For all the pressure the Eagles have generated, they rank just 18th in sacks per pass attempt and 13th in yards per pass against them. They also play the resurgent Los Angeles Rams and the Seattle Seahawks, which are winnable games but tougher matchups.

Sean Lee shouldered more responsibility at linebacker in the first four games this season while Anthony Hitchens recovered from a knee injury.

Without these players on the field, the team struggled and struggled mightily. "(We) know what we're getting into, and they know what they're getting into. When he is in the game, the Cowboys don't over-pursue as much.

And if the Cowboys send extra blockers to that side of the line to help their left tackle, they could leave the Eagles' top two pass rushers - Fletcher Cox and Brandon Graham - with one-on-one opportunities elsewhere.

Coming off their bye week, the Eagles remained the across-the-board top-ranked team in the NFL, according to power rankings from national outlets. On the surface, the running game was inefficient, with the running backs tallying a total of 65 yards on 15 carries. Cowboys fans better hope they can fix that problem, because it looks like they'll be without him for the next few games. He has yet to record a 100-yard game and he has only had one game with more than 75 receiving yards this season. The passing game still features tight end Jason Witten and a strong group of receivers that includes Dez Bryant and slot receiver Cole Beasley. He is now on track for his lowest catch percentage over a full season in his career.

Smith, who has been dealing with back issues most of the season sat out because of a groin injury he suffered against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Completion after completion, run after run, right to where Sean Lee would have been showed just how far Jaylon Smith has to come.

After a drubbing by the hands of the Atlanta Falcons, the road ahead gets even bumpier for the Dallas Cowboys... Smith has now found his role in the middle of the defense at middle linebacker. With a short week ahead of them before hosting the Chargers on Thanksgiving, the Cowboys can not afford to drop to 5-5 with time starting to dwindle in the NFC playoff picture. How the Eagles come back after a week off will be key. It's a rivalry, and they are leading our division right now.
