Week 3 Monday Night Football Free Picks
PHILADELPHIA @ DALLAS | 8:15 PM EDT
At the beginning of the season, everyone and their brother had the Cowboys finishing 1st in the NFC East and the Eagles finishing most likely last. That narrative changed though. After we saw a solid outing by Philly Week 1 against the Falcons, these teams are a little closer than one would think in my eyes. The Eagles fast start was key, being able to bring in a healthy offensive and defensive front was critical, but they aren’t nearly as healthy anymore.
Fletcher Cox, a staple on the Eagles defense for years, has been dealing with an illness this week and the loss of Brandon Graham is not good at all. Not to mention, starting LT Brandon Brooks is out for the week. The Cowboys definitely are not contenders yet, but last week they captured a very resilient win. With this being said, take Dallas -3.5 or -3 if confident.
Final score prediction: Cowboys: 31 Eagles: 27 (58 points total)
Another MNF Free Pick: O 51.5
