It's do-or-die time for the Eagles this weekend. With their season hanging in the balance, they will go down to Dallas to play the Cowboys with 1st-place in the NFC East on the line. In last week's bold prediction's article, our writer Campbell Duffy's prediction came true that the Eagles finally got Golden Tate in the endzone and he ended up becoming a focal point in the passing game. Here are Eagles Frenzy’s bold predictions for Week 14's game versus the Dallas Cowboys:
Tyler Wells (@TylerDylanWells):
Alshon Jeffery has been pretty quiet in 2018 so far, and after signing a big contract with Philadelphia last December, he needs to show he's worth it. He'll prove that against Dallas when he goes off with 10 catches for 160 yards and 2 touchdowns.
This game is going to induce a lot of stress for both fans. So obviously this seems like the perfect game to go into overtime just to make sure no one has any fingernails left. The Eagles will make a defensive stop in overtime and Jake Elliott will kick a 45+ yard field goal to slingshot the Eagles into 1st place in the NFC East.
In order for the Eagles to win Sunday they will need to stop the Cowboys biggest threat: Ezekiel Elliot. The Eagles will hold Elliot to under 100 yards and win 27-14 putting them in first place in the NFC East.

Battle for the NFC East. Game of the Week on Fox. This is a time for a veteran player to step up and make plays for this team. Darren Sproles is going to have 5+ catches for 100+ yards and a TD. Sproles adds another one on a punt return.
Jordan Matthews provides a repeat of his 2015 heroics against the Cowboys and makes the critical play that gets the Eagles over the top.
Nelson Agholor hasn't had a touchdown since Week 2 of this season. That score against Tampa Bay is in-fact his only of the year. After the Eagles attempt to establish their run game early, look out for a play-action bomb to Agholor over the top. As long as he's falling backwards into the endzone a la DeSean's 91 yarder vs. Cowboys in 2010, I'm happy.
Eagles run the Cowboys out of the building by 20+ points. Might be more "wishful thinking" than "bold prediction", but it's Dallas and there'd be nothing more sweet than to see Carson Wentz go 300+ yards and three touchdowns while Dak Prescott tries (and fails) to play catch-up. It's comical that these two QBs are even mentioned in the same breath. Go Birds.
Will any of these predictions come true? We will find out soon.
