Both written off at different points the season, the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles have since shown that their demise was greatly exaggerated.

One of the two will have officially turned their season around and stand in control of the NFC East with three games remaining after they meet at 1:25 p.m. this afternoon in Arlington, Texas.

Fans and bettors alike were calling for Dallas coach Jason Garrett’s job and a complete dismantling a month ago when the Cowboys fell to 3-5 on the season with back-to-back upset losses to the Redskins and Titans. The Cowboys haven’t lost or failed to cover since, and now lead the NFC East with a 7-5 straight-up record.

The start of their streak came in Philadelphia, where Dallas prevailed 27-20 as 7.5-point underdogs. That loss combined with a 48-7 obliteration at New Orleans the next week put Philadelphia’s stock at a season-low in the betting market.

The defending Super Bowl champions have recovered to beat their other two divisional rivals and will try to make a three-week sweep against the Cowboys.

It’s the game of the week in the Sun’s handicapping contest, meaning each of the three competing sports writers must use one of six weekly wagers off of the South Point betting board on the matchup.
