Oddsmakers currently have the Eagles listed as 3-point favorites versus the Cowboys, while the game’s total is sitting at 54½.
Murray never had fewer than 19 carries in a game with Dallas last season, but he rushed only eight times for nine yards in the loss to the Falcons, although he scored a pair of touchdowns. Quarterback Sam Bradford overcame a shaky first half in his Philadelphia debut to finish 36 of 52 for 336 yards with one TD and two picks while second-year wide receiver Jordan Matthews was his top target with 10 receptions for 102 yards. Cornerback Byron Maxwell, who signed a six-year, $63 million free-agent deal, struggled badly while matched up against Julio Jones.
The Eagles were a 26-24 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Falcons. They failed to cover the -3.5-point spread as favorites, while the total score (50) made winners of UNDER bettors.

Dallas will be hard-pressed to replace the production of Bryant, who has at least 88 catches and 1,200 yards in each of the past three seasons and led the league with 41 touchdown receptions in that span. Romo threw for 356 yards with three TDs and two interceptions last week, connecting on eight passes apiece to veteran tight end Jason Witten and running back Lance Dunbar, part of a three-man committee in the backfield. Joseph Randle received the bulk of work in place of Murray, rushing for 65 yards on 16 carries while adding three catches for 42 yards.
Dallas was a 27-26 winner in its last match at home against the Giants. They failed to cover the -7-point spread as favorites, while the total score of 53 sent OVER bettors to the payout window.
