Both the Eagles and Cowboys have struggled lately, and the two NFC East sides will be looking to turn their fortunes around when matched up against one another in Week 7.

The Eagles, coming off a loss against the Vikings, have now dropped to 3-3 on the year, but Doug Pederson is confident the team won't sink below .500. In fact, he's personally guaranteed a victory over the Cowboys next week.

Speaking with Philly Sportsradio 94 WIP, Pederson acknowledged the team's recent struggles, but also vouched for his guys and confidently assured fans of a victory next week.

The Cowboys have lost three in a row, including a surprising and rather embarrassing loss to the Jets on Sunday, tying them with the Birds at 3-3. A win next week would see the Eagles lay claim to the NFC East throne, at least for now.

It's certainly a bold claim from Pederson and one he won't be able to take back, so he better hope the team can live up to his expectations -- particularly the secondary which has struggled mightily in 2019.

The Cowboys will be looking to avoid a four-game skid, so they'll have a chip on their shoulder while hosting the Eagles at AT&T Stadium.
