Welcome to the Daily Blitz by DSP Media in partnership with CowboysSI.com.

It’s a contest between 1-1 teams according to the standings, and with both the New York Giants and Washington Football Team losing Sunday, it’s an early matchup for sole possession of first place in the NFC East. The Cowboys are coming off a last-minute win over the Los Angeles Chargers, while the Eagles suffered an embarrassing loss to the San Francisco 49ers last weekend.

Both teams have significant pieces missing for the marquee matchup. The Eagles are going to be without a starting offensive tackle (Jordan Mailata) and starting safety (Rodney McLeod), but might get an important piece of the offense back in backup running back Boston Scott.
