Eagles Underdogs Again at the Linc

Vegas has yet to learn their lesson. According to Westgate Superbook, the Dallas Cowboys opened up as 2.5 point favorites against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The last time the Eagles were underdogs on their home field, in a win or go home situation, was the NFC Championship in 2017, against the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings walked into Lincoln Financial Field as 3.5 point favorites. They lost 38-7

The previous week was the Divisional Round, when the Atlanta Falcons traveled to Philadelphia. The Falcons came into the game as 3 point favorites. The Eagles won that game 15-10.

In 2017, with Carson Wentz out for the season with a torn ACL, and Nick Foles starting, Vegas had an excuse, but now, Wentz is healthy and starting. The Eagles have been able to embrace the underdog status, and you can guarantee that mentality will be bulletin board material this week inside the locker room for Doug Pederson and his team.
