Dallas will try to claim first road victory of the season against NFC East rival Eagles.

The Cowboys, who are 0-4 on the road this season, travel to play NFC East rival Philadelphia on Sunday night. The Eagles are a touchdown favorite and ESPN’s Matchup Predictor gives Philadelphia a 73.6-percent chance to win.

TV: 7:20 p.m. CT, Sunday Night Football on NBC.

RECORDS: Cowboys 3-5, 0-4 on the road. Eagles 4-4, 2-2 at home.

SERIES HISTORY: 115th regular-season meeting. Dallas leads 63-51. The Cowboys and Eagles have split the NFC East regular-season home-and-home each of the last five seasons. In 2017, the Eagles won in Dallas, 37-9 and the Cowboys won a Week 17 matchup in Philadelphia, 6-0.

BY THE NUMBERS: 78.6 – The Titans’ success rate on third down in their 28-14 victory over Dallas on Monday Night Football. Tennessee totaled 340 yards of offense, 60 yards better than their average entering the game.

PLAYER SPOTLIGHT: WR Amari Cooper made an impact in his first game as a Cowboy. Although Tennessee shut out Dallas in the second half and claimed a 28-14 victory, Cooper caught 5 passes for 58 yards and a touchdown. The problem Dallas has to figure out is why Cooper’s receptions came at the expense of the team’s receiving leader Cole Beasley, who caught just 3 passes for 16 yards on Monday night.
