I have a dilemma.

Monday night, my Philadelphia Eagles play the Dallas Cowboys. I hate the Cowboys. I’m not a fan of team owner Jerry Jones. I despise everything about the Cowboys.

But they have a better team than my Eagles. The Eagles failed to convert on first-half opportunities against the San Francisco 49ers last Sunday. Their 17-11 loss took the luster off of the Eagles’ 32-6 win over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 1.

The Cowboys could be 2-0. Their defense looks a bit better than last year. And I’m concerned about Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott shredding the Eagles’ secondary.

Do I pick the Eagles to win, or do I, yikes, pick the Cowboys? I guess you will have to scroll down to see my pick.

I recovered from my Week 1 7-9 record and went 11-5 last week. I am 18-14.
