After scoring 51 points en route to dismantling the Broncos in Week 9, Philly is flying high sporting the leagues best record while enjoying a Week 10 Bye. The Eagles control their own destiny and currently have the inside track to the NFC East title and potentially home field advantage.
There haven't been too many dull moments for the Cowboys this year between the Ezekiel Elliott domestic violence case saga and owner Jerry Jones making headlines regarding issues with player protests and a potential lawsuit against the NFL. Dallas is playing it's best football so far this year but will likely be without Elliott for the foreseeable future, which is the most crucial part of the season.
