The perception is that the Cowboys are going to roll all over the Eagles this weekend, in a game they have to win to keep their season on life support. It’s hard to argue with that sentiment, seeing as the rest of the league been rolling all over the Eagles in recent weeks. Vegas has the spread at Cowboys -10.

Here is what Dallas’ starters were supposed to be on defense up the middle, and what it has become, if in fact Ratliff is not a go this weekend:
