    For the second consecutive week, the Philadelphia Eagles find themselves in the role of underdog, this time on the road against their NFC East rival Dallas Cowboys. With only two teams on bye this week, we have a 15-game slate that began Thursday with the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers hitting the Over -- by halftime -- on a historically low total. There will be 12 games on Sunday highlighted by the aforementioned Eagles and Cowboys in Prime Time. The week concludes with an ABC/ESPN Monday NIght Football double-header when the Miami Dolphins host the Tennessee Titans while the Green Bay Packers pay a visit to the New York Giants. Both games start at 8:15 p.m. ET. We've got lines for all of this week's games, updated throughout the week.
