Dallas Cowboys LT Tyron Smith could return in Week 11

3 Things Watch Eagles 49ers

It's been more than a decade since Philly has been as excited by their Eagles as they are now. The majority of New Orleans remaining games are in their division, where they have four left to play, including two against the Falcons.

In my opinion, Philadelphia has the best "team" in the NFL.

In Darby's absence, the Eagles' secondary has thrived with cornerback Jalen Mills playing at a Pro Bowl level, rookie third-round pick Rasul Douglas contributing and Patrick Robinson exceeding expectations after moving into the team's nickel cornerback role. They sit alone atop the league's standings with an 8-1 record. He has 4.3 speed and is risky when he gets his hands on the ball, which is why the Eagles paid a decent price - a third-round pick and productive receiver Jordan Matthews - when they dealt for him in the middle of training camp. It was the conclusion of a three-week homestand in which Philadelphia beat their opponents by a combined 61 points.

The Cowboys have three games in 12 days, starting Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles with a quick Thanksgiving turnaround against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Now, the Eagles go on the road for the first time in over a month, facing a Cowboys' team that isn't close to being at full strength. The offensive line was an absolute mess with Smith on Sunday in a loss to the Atlanta Falcons.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones recognizes the delicate nature of linebacker Sean Lee's hamstring injury and understands why there are those within the organization who thinks he could miss the next two to three games.

Elliott isn't even in the country as he serves the remainder of his suspension. As for Smith? The team is hopeful. The game also features a burgeoning individual rivalry between second-year quarterbacks Carson Wentz of the Eagles and Dak Prescott of the Cowboys. He was brought down six times by Falcons defensive lineman Adrian Clayborn.

The Eagles didn't play and it seems they've been passed as the hot team in the league. They carried a three game win streak into their first weekend without Ezekiel Elliott, but it didn't go well. The game is set for a prime, Sunday night slot. Philadelphia's offense has been the most consistent in the league, scoring at least 20 points in every game. Sunday's over/under is 48.

But the Eagles also face Russell Wilson, Jared Goff and Derek Carr over the next six weeks as they come down the home stretch fighting to lock down the conference's top seed and home-field advantage up to the Super Bowl. Ajayi, a Frisco Liberty product, was a fifth round draft pick in 2015 and ran for 1,272 yards and eight touchdowns last season.

Wentz has thrown for 2,262 yards, 23 touchdowns and five interceptions, completing 60.5 percent of his passes.

That doesn't sound like a quarterback that Dallas' secondary will be able to stop. Lee is the captain on the Cowboys' defense. They play the Washington Redskin son November 30 at AT&T Stadium.

The league's best quarterbacks have put up big numbers against the Cowboys, even in Dallas. This time it will be tears of joy, though, because Carson Wentz and the Eagles will have made my dreams come true.
