Tonight's Cowboys vs Eagles live stream sets up a huge test for Jalen Hurts and company as they play host to their division rival Cowboys. Mike McCarthy’s team has won their last three meetings with Philly, but this NFL live stream catches the Eagles at a time where they're been flying pretty high!

The Cowboys (4-1) continue to turn heads this season as they are coming off their fourth straight win without Dak Prescott. Dallas beat the defending Super Bowl Champion Rams last week, 22-10. After being listed as questionable, Prescott is not expected to play today, as he's still recovering from surgery repairing his broken thumb. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told 105.3 the Fan in Dallas that Prescott is still having issues "putting spin on the football." In his absence, backup Cooper Rush and a stingy Dallas defense have taken over. 

Rush has yet to throw an interception this season while linebacker Micah Parsons has led a defensive unit that is second in the league in sacks (20) and third in fewest points allowed (14.4). Parsons himself, is locked in a four-way tie for the most sacks in the NFL with six.  

The Eagles (5-0) are the NFL’s only undefeated team. Last week in Arizona, they kept that perfect record intact by engineering a 17-play, 70-yard drive late in the fourth quarter and capped it off with a 23-yard field goal that ended up being the game winner, giving Philly at 20-17 victory over the Cardinals.

The biggest reason for the Eagles’ success this season has been the play of their quarterback Jalen Hurts. The 24-year-old signal caller who is now in his second year of being the Eagles’ starter has thrown or rushed for nine of the team’s 16 offensive touchdowns this season. He has also posted a 97.4 passer rating which is the eighth highest rating in the league. There was a lot of talk going into the season about whether or not Hurts will be the “franchise quarterback” in Philadelphia going forward. So far, he has all but silenced anyone doubting his future as “the guy” in Philly.

The last time the Cowboys and Eagles faced each other was week 18 of last season. Dallas still had playoff seeding to play for while Philly’s postseason position had been set. The Eagles opted to rest Hurts and a few other of their key starters. The result was a 51-26 Cowboy victory. 

The Action Network (opens in new tab) has the Eagles as 6.5-point favorites to beat the Cowboys.
