On Monday night, division rivals Dallas and Philadelphia will square off for the NFC East division lead.

The Cowboys enter the contest as a slight favorite, even though the Eagles will be playing at home. Division rivalries usually bring out the best in both teams and this should be no exception.

Before the game kicks off, Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott made it clear the Eagles are the Cowboys biggest rival. He also said it's the team he likes the least.

"It means a lot. I mean definitely probably our biggest rival, especially since I’ve been here," Elliott said. "Probably the team I don’t like the most. But Philly week is always fun. I know AT&T is going to be electric Monday night."

The Eagles and Cowboys split the season series in 2020. However, a healthy Dak Prescott should give Dallas the edge in this year's contests.

Then again, second-year quarterback Jalen Hurts looks like a legitimate NFL starter through the first two games of the 2021 season. Hurts is completing just over 67-percent of his passes for 454 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions.

He also leads the Eagles in rushing with 144 yards and a touchdown.

On the other side, Prescott has rebounded from injury well and has already thrown for 630 yards and three touchdowns.

Dallas and Philadelphia kick off on Monday night at 8:15 p.m. ET on ESPN.
