Eagles QB Carson Wentz believes upcoming matchup with Cowboys is biggest game of his career

Carson Wentz, Eagles

The NFC East is, in short, an awful division. The Dallas Cowboys currently top the division, sporting a 7-7 record. The Philadelphia Eagles are also 7-7, but with the head-to-head disadvantage.

Luckily for the Eagles, these two squads will face each other again in Week 16 action. It’s an absolute must-win game for both teams, as it’ll determine who gets the fourth seed in the NFC. Philly quarterback Carson Wentz knows that this drama-packed game is the most important one that he’s ever played, according to Jeff Skversky of ABC Sports.

This game is a huge test for Wentz. Despite technically being on the Eagles’ Super Bowl team, everyone knows without Nick Foles Philly is still hunting for their first title. Even last season required some late-season heroics from Foles to get the Eagles into the playoffs. Foles is down in Florida now, so the burden is all on Wentz. In a year that Philly has been massively disappointing, this stands out as a chance to right the ship at least a little bit.

Whenever the word “disappointing” is used, NFL fans have to think of the Cowboys. They have Super Bowl talent but are still questionable to make the playoffs. Their odds don’t look too bad though. They’re playing the same Philadelphia team that they dismantled earlier in the year. The only major difference is that this game is in Philadelphia. Dallas should be able to fight through the home crowd and secure their second division crown in as many years.
