The Philadelphia Eagles remain the NFL’s only undefeated team. They also hold a head to head victory over the Dallas Cowboys.
All of this being said, legendary coach Jimmy Johnson believes that the Cowboys have a better chance at winning the Super Bowl.
Johnson claims that this Cowboys team is the “best” he has ever seen.
“I think this is the best Cowboys team that I’ve seen,” he said during a recent appearance on 105.3 The Fan. “I’m still not 100% sold on Philadelphia. The NFC is down. I think the Cowboys have a better shot than most.”

Johnson explained why he wasn’t sold on the Eagles.
“If you look at Philadelphia, they run a different style of offense that gives people problems right off the bat. Most of their scoring comes early, especially in the second quarter. But once a team adjusts to that different style, the second half they’re playing them touch and go. And the other thing is, a team playing them for a second time will be that better prepared for them.”
The Cowboys are now 6-2 with only losses to Tampa Bay (Tampa Bay) and Philadelphia (Philadelphia). The Cowboys will have another chance to take on the Eagles in a Dallas home game during Week 16.
