"Philadelphia had a bye week so it doesn't quite feel right toppling the NFL's best record from the No. 1 spot when the Eagles didn't do anything to ruin it". And by sat at home and rested, of course I mean sat in a tree and shot arrows at wild game. "We're 8-1 and we've got a target on our back". It's later in the season, guys are banged up and they are sitting at 8-1 while they watched every other team in the NFC East lose over the weekend.
Darby wasn't sure Monday how much he'll play against the Cowboys, but didn't rule out playing the whole game. However, some time to rest and heal up will be crucial for the Eagles if they are going to make a Super Bowl run.
The Eagles have the best offensive player in the National Football League in Carson Wentz.
But Ertz might be limited on Sunday, if he even plays at all. Third-stringer Case Keenum is performing at a Pro Bowl level this season, completing 21-of-29 for 304 yards and four touchdowns against Washington Sunday.
If the Vikings survive that stretch, they'll deserve a first-round bye in the playoffs. Elliott has been in a battle with the National Football League over the suspension all season, and successfully delayed it for weeks, but it appears now that he will finally serve it. The last time the franchise won more than seven games was 2006. That helps you bring your game up a little bit more.
In the last eight games, Douglas has started four. He has 666 yards passing and seven touchdowns in the two games since the Rams' bye. He also has one rushing score and one lost fumble.

On Black Friday itself, they will be joined by hundreds of head office workers helping out on the shop floor. And indeed, Best Buy began offering most of its Black Friday deals November 8th - more than two weeks early.
"Something to keep in mind: Carson Wentz has thrown a touchdown on 7.9 percent of his passes this season". This Rams team hasn't done anything like this in almost 15 years, so 7-2 could easily become 7-7 given their schedule.
Amazingly, the Eagles didn't skip a beat without him, even after losing Pro Bowl defensive tackle Fletcher Cox for two starts, safety Rodney McLeod for one and after losing middle linebacker Jordan Hicks for the rest of the season on October 23 against the Redskins with an Achilles tear. It might be with good reason, too.
Despite Atlanta's struggles this season, that was still a good offense, and they took advantage of a huge personnel weakness on Sunday afternoon.
What makes the Saints so hot?
After his Chiefs were crushed by Dallas, 51-23, on November 5, Pro Bowl linebacker Tamba Hali told the Dallas Morning News that the Cowboys, and not the Eagles, are "the best team in the league".
As a newcomer who's been out of the game, Ellerbe understands he's in no position to dictate where he plays or whether he will be required to contribute on special teams for the first time since 2012, when he was on his way to a Super Bowl championship with the Baltimore Ravens. The Rivalry is renewed with the Cowboys, which is flawless for an Eagles team that has won seven consecutive games and is coming off a bye week. The Eagles have only allowed 598 rushing yards on 3.6 yards an attempt. They said he'd be out 4-6 weeks, but he's missed more like nine weeks. We'll handle Sean's situation that way we always handle the injuries: if he's ready to play, he'll have a chance to play. The two franchises have seen their fair share of regular season matchups in recent seasons, and they'll share another December 3rd for Sunday Night Football.
