The Cowboys vs Eagles live stream is almost here and it has Philadelphia going for a little revenge from their first meeting in Dallas. The Eagles suffered their worst loss of the season in that week three, 41-21 defeat. A lot has changed for Philly since then and if the majority of their starters play in this NFL live stream they'll look to prove a much.

The Cowboys (11-5) may have the NFL East wrapped up, but they are still hoping to get the tase of last week’s 25-22 loss to the Cardinals out of their mouth. Dallas went into the fourth quarter of that game trailing 22-7, before putting up 15 points in the final period.

To this point, quarterback Dak Prescott has put together his best season since his rookie campaign. The six-year vet has posted a 100.9 passer rating this year with a career-high 32 touchdown passes. If the Cowboys decide to rest him in his regular season finale, that will stand as his best rating since the 104.9 rating he posted his first year in the league.

The Eagles (9-7) are headed to the playoffs after a four-win season last year and a 2-5 start to this season. First-year head coach Nick Sirianni helped the quick turnaround by changing his offensive philosophy midway through the season. Doubling as the team’s offensive play-caller, Sirianni started to lean on running backs Miles Sanders, Boston Scott and Jordan Howard as well as the athleticism of quarterback Jalen Hurts to turn this Eagles offense into the NFL’s number one rushing attack.

As a passer, Hurts has also shown growth. In four starts as a rookie, he completed just 52% of his passes, but this season, his first as a full-time starter the 23-year-old has upped that number to 61.3%. 

With the playoff picture pretty much set for Philly, Hurts will have the night off as they go with the backup, Gardner Minshew. Minshew made one start this season throwing for 242 yards and two touchdowns on 20-of-25 passing against the Jets in week 13.

The Cowboys are 3.5-point favorites against the Eagles. The over/under is 45.
