The NFC East race is still wide open at this point, but the Eagles can get a leg up on the rest of the division with the Cowboys on a bye. They improved to 5-5 after routing the Green Bay Packers last week. The offense seems to have got its rhythm back with Nick Foles under center. The Redskins blew a chance to gain ground in the division when they lost to the Minnesota Vikings. They fell to 3-6 in the standings and are now fighting the Giants for third place.
Nearly everyone expects the Eagles to win this game. Of the eight ESPN experts who submitted their picks, six are taking Philadelphia. The Eagles are unanimous picks at both CBS Sports and Yahoo Sports!. Things are a bit more even at our own SB Nation panel, with four out of six analysts picking the Eagles.
