Dallas has won two straight versus Philadelphia, including a 27-20 victory in the City of Brotherly Love in Week 10. The Cowboys have lost four of the last five matchups in Dallas, including last season's 37-9 home loss. The 28-point margin tied the third largest of any game in Dallas in this series all-time.

The Eagles beat the Redskins on Monday night, 28-13, scoring 25-plus points for only the third time this season after doing so 12 times last season. All three games this season have come against the NFC East -- the Eagles average 26.8 points versus their division compared to 18.9 points otherwise.

The Cowboys are riding a four-game win streak, initiated by their win over the Eagles. Last week, Dallas became the first team to beat the Saints since Tampa Bay in Week 1 and the first to hold them to 10 points or fewer since Houston in Week 12 of 2015.

Zach Ertz reeled in nine of 10 targets against Washington, bringing his season total to 93 receptions and breaking Philadelphia's single-season franchise record (Brian Westbrook -- 90 in 2007). Ertz has gotten 10-plus targets eight times this season -- only Adam Thielen (9) has more such games.

Dak Prescott has completed 74.0 percent of his passes during Dallas' four-game win streak and has zero interceptions in that span. Since Prescott entered the league in 2016, he owns a 26-5 record (.839) when throwing zero interceptions, trailing only Tom Brady (21-4, .840) in that span.

Both teams are adept at preventing touchdowns in goal-to-go situations, with the Cowboys doing so a league-best 50.0 percent of the time and the Eagles ranking second at 52.4 percent. The Eagles scored a TD on 83.3 percent of those situations last season but have done so at a 68.2 percent clip this season.
