Philadelphia Eagles: The Eagles (3-8 straight-up, 1-9-1 against the spread) are in an absolute freefall having lost seven straight. The latest debacle was a 30-22 loss to Carolina on Monday night as 3-point home ‘dogs. They’re now 0-6 ATS in their last six. Coach Andy Reid is likely gone at the end of the season, and he seems to have done a desperation move in cutting veteran defensive end Jason Babin on Tuesday. The injury news isn’t any better for Philly with DeSean Jackson (ribs) out for the season, and quarterback Mike Vick and running back LeSean McCoy are both doubtful with concussions (click for latest NFL injury report). Rookie QB Nick Foles isn’t left with many weapons or a capable offensive line. He has one touchdown versus three picks in three games to go along with a 65.3 passer rating.
Dallas Cowboys: Dallas (5-6 SU, 4-7 ATS) is well-rested in last playing on Thanksgiving, a disappointing 38-31 home loss to Washington as 3½-point favorites. The Cowboys are still alive in the NFC playoff chase despite their record, but this is certainly a must-win game. They really need to get their running game going, with explosive back DeMarco Murray (foot) upgraded to probable after missing the last six games. Quarterback Tony Romo was forced to throw the ball 62 times last game against Washington with just 35 team rushing yards. There is also injury news on defense with linebacker Bruce Carter (elbow) gone for the year. Inside backer Sean Lee was already lost earlier this season. The Eagles and Cowboys met a few weeks ago on Nov. 11 with Dallas getting a 38-23 road win. Vick was hurt in that game with Foles making his NFL debut.
