It's time for the Eagles vs Cowboys live stream, and it features a Philly team looking to prove that its week one success was no fluke. Meanwhile, Dallas is trying for two-in-a-row in this NFL live stream.

Philly is also walking in after a good Sunday around the league for its own needs. The Giants, Washington Football Team, Dolphins and Colts all lost.

The Cowboys (1-1) are gearing up for their second prime time game already this year after helping open the 2021 NFL season with a 31-29 loss to the Buccaneers. Dallas followed that loss by bouncing back with a 20-17 win against the Chargers last week in Los Angeles. Now the Cowboys open AT&T Stadium under the lights of Monday Night Football. 

Dak Prescott has quickly put to rest any questions about his health this season. The 28-year-old is coming off a broken ankle that ended his 2020 season in week five as well as a shoulder injury suffered in training camp this year. Prescott has posted a 99.1 passer rating this season while completing 76.5% of his passes, third best in the NFL. 

The Eagles (1-1) put up some huge numbers in their week one win over the Falcons, but last week was a different story. They returned home to South Philadelphia to score just 11 points after their 32-point performance against the Falcons. Quarterback Jalen Hurts was unable to find a rhythm and unlike their opening week, the Eagles’ offense couldn’t come up with a big score to help put their opponent in a substantial hole. 

Philly did lead 3-0 in the first quarter when Hurts, while standing in his own end zone, hit Quez Watkins for a 91-yard reception. They would take that drive to a fourth-and-goal from the three when rookie head coach Nick Sirianni called for a variation of the Eagles’ famous Super Bowl play “the Philly Special.”

Unfortunately for Sirianni, this play didn’t work like it did for his predecessor Doug Pederson. This play ended when wide receiver Greg Ward was forced to throw the ball away when Jalen Hurts was well-covered in the corner of the end zone. Sirianni admitted postgame, that was a play he would like to have back, “I got to make a better play call,” he told the media after the loss. 

The inactives are as follows:

Eagles: OG Jack Anderson, OT Jordan Mailata, S Rodney McLeod, QB Gardner Minshew, LB Davion Taylor

Cowboys: DE Dorance Armstrong, QB Will Grier, OT Ty Nsekhe, DT Carlos Watkins, S Donovan Wilson

The Eagles lost more than just a game last week. Veteran pro-bowl defensive end Brandon Graham has an Achilles injury that the team announced ended his season and pro bowl right guard Brandon Brooks was placed on IR with a pec injury.  

The Cowboys are 3.5-point favorites against the Eagles. The over/under is 51.5 points.
