NFL picks and predictions, Eagles vs. Cowboys 2013: The battle for the NFC East title in Dallas

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

NFL experts are picking the winner of the very important matchup between the Eagles and Cowboys on Sunday.

The Cowboys will host the Eagles on Sunday for the NFC East title. The Eagles are coming off a huge blowout win over the Bears, while the Cowboys kept their playoff hopes alive with a comeback victory over the Redskins in Week 16. The Eagles are currently 9-6 and have won six of their last seven games. The Cowboys are 8-7 and are dealing with a very banged-up roster, with quarterback Tony Romo likely to miss Sunday's game.

With everything going against Dallas on paper, the Eagles are favored by 7.5 points, according to CBS Sports. For the eight-man panel, only CBS Sports writer Dave Richard thinks the spread is too large in favor of the Eagles. The panel all went with Philadelphia when picking straight up.

Showtime's Inside the NFL panel of three voted 2-0 in favor of the Eagles. Sunday Night Football analyst Cris Collinsworth abstained from voting due to his involvement in the game. Phil Simms and Franco Harris both like Philadelphia in the matchup.

The SB Nation panel voted 3-2 in favor of the Eagles. Stephen White and David Fucillo picked the Cowboys.
