The Cowboys are coming off their best win of the season, defeating the Eagles in Philadelphia on NBC's Sunday Night Football, but another tough test is coming today, as Dallas is traveling to Atlanta to take on the Falcons.

Jason Garrett's team remains in the hunt for the NFC East, but a win today is pivotal, as the Cowboys really can't afford to fall more games behind in the race.

The Falcons, meanwhile, are in a similar position. Like Dallas, Atlanta is 4-5 and facing an uphill battle for a playoff spot.

Both teams are in desperate need of a victory today.

Who's going to get it?

ESPN has made its prediction.

ESPN's Football Power Index is giving the Atlanta Falcons a 59.4 percent chance of winning today's game, giving the Dallas Cowboys just a 40.3 percent chance of pulling off the upset.

The Cowboys and the Falcons are set to kick off at 1 p.m. E.T.

The game will be on FOX.
