The Dallas Cowboys Host the Philadelphia Eagles Tonight on NBC’s ‘Sunday Night Football’

NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” marks the latest installment of a classic NFC East rivalry, as Carson Wentz and the first-place Philadelphia Eagles (8-1) travel to Arlington, Texas, to face Dak Prescott and the second-place Dallas Cowboys (5-4) in a battle of playoff contenders. Coverage begins with “Football Night in America” tonight, Nov. 19, at 7 p.m. ET, on NBC.

Philadelphia enters Sunday’s game on a seven-game winning streak and is 8-1 for the fifth time in franchise history. The Wentz-led Eagles rank fourth in total offense (377.0 yards per game). Wentz is the third quarterback since 1950 to amass more than 2,000 passing yards, 19 passing touchdowns and 200 rushing yards through the first eight games of a season, joining Hall of Fame quarterbacks Steve Young and Fran Tarkenton. Philadelphia ranks first in the NFL in rushing defense, allowing 66.4 yards per game.

The Cowboys look to rebound from a 27-7 loss against Atlanta on Sunday after three consecutive wins. Prescott has passed for 13 touchdowns and two interceptions in his last seven starts. The 2016 Offensive Rookie of the Year is one of four quarterbacks since 1970 to account for 50 touchdowns in his first 25 career games. Defensively, the Cowboys are led by DE Demarcus Lawrence, whose career-high 11.5 sacks rank first in the league.

Dallas holds the edge in the all-time series, 62-50, and are 12-10 against Philadelphia in regular-season primetime games, including 5-5 in NBC “Sunday Night Football” contests. Prescott and the Cowboys rallied from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter last season to beat the Eagles, 29-23, in overtime on SNF.

Calling Eagles-Cowboys are seven-time Emmy Award-winner Al Michaels (play-by-play), in his record 32nd season as the voice of the NFL’s premier primetime package; 16-time Emmy Award-winner Cris Collinsworth; and two-time Emmy Award-winning sideline reporter Michele Tafoya.
