It’s a spooky time in the NFC East as they continue to be a dominating team. All four NFC East teams are on a hot streak and look to continue staying in the playoff picture. The Philadelphia Eagles are now in a one-and-a-half-game lead in the division with the Dallas Cowboys in second, the Giants in third and the Commanders in fourth place and looking to turn their season around.
Dallas Cowboys: (Spooky) Season High
The Dallas Cowboys (6-2) beat the Chicago Bears, 49-29, marking a season-high in points scored for Dallas. Dak Prescott looked scary good throwing 21-of-27 for 250 yards, one passing and one rushing touchdown. The Cowboys enter the bye week looking great and giving Prescott more time to recover and keep strong before finishing off the season with a hopeful spot in the playoffs.
New York Giants: A Defensive Thriller
The New York Giants (6-2) lost to the Seattle Seahawks, their luck ran out today in a back-and-forth game. Daniel Jones threw 17-of-31 for 176 yards. Saquon Barkley helped the team where he could with 20 carries for 53 yards and one touchdown. The Giants also enter the bye week trying to get right back on track with how dominant they’ve played so far this season.
Washington Commanders: No Tricks, All Treats
It was a close game for the Washington Commanders (4-4) versus the Indianapolis Colts, but Washington is now sitting at a neutral record hoping to keep their luck alive in hopes of making it a winning record next week against the Minnesota Vikings. Backup Taylor Heinicke threw 23-of-31 for 279 yards, one passing touchdown and one rushing touchdown.
Philadelphia Eagles: A Monster Performance
The Philadelphia Eagles (7-0) picked up like they never left off as they won against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The offense was alive and the defense was doing all the right stuff to continue their undefeated season fresh off the bye week. Jalen Hurts threw 19-of-28 for 285 yards and four touchdowns. Now, the team will prepare for a short week to face the Houston Texans – while the Philadelphia Phillies will face the same city’s baseball team in the World Series.
