- Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott suffered a sprained shoulder last week against the Rams.
- Learn how Prescott's injury is moving the spread and over/under for Sunday's NFC East showdown with the Eagles (4:25 p.m. ET, FOX).
The NFC East divisional crown and a berth in the postseason likely comes down to Sunday’s Cowboys vs. Eagles matchup.
Both teams take identical 7-7 records into Week 16, meaning the winner will enter the final week of the regular season at 8-7. And since Dallas already beat Philadelphia back in Week 7, a Cowboys win would lock up the NFC East.
Unfortunately for Jason Garrett’s team, quarterback Dak Prescott reportedly suffered a strain right shoulder during last week’s game against the Los Angeles Rams, an injury that has prevented him from throwing in practice so far this week.
