Not a bad little bye week for the Eagles.
The Redskins were blown out at home and are currently missing, quite literally, an offensive line. The Cowboys, meanwhile, not only lost by two touchdowns at home off a bye week to the Titans in front of a national audience, but likely lost linebacker Sean Lee for an extended period in the process.

And the Giants look like they might be relevant sometime in the roaring 20’s. A strong bye week, indeed, and the numbers back it up.
According to FiveThirtyEight, the Eagles’ odds to win the NFC East jumped from 39% to 57% over the weekend. The first-place Redskins check in next with a 35% chance, while the Cowboys are at 9% and fading fast. With that said, as the Eagles get set to open up the second half of the season on Sunday night at Lincoln Financial Field against the Cowboys, now seems like a good time to reset and take a look at the futures betting market.
Currently, you can grab the Eagles to win the Super Bowl at +2200 at DraftKings Sportsbook. You can also grab the Eagles to win the NFC at +1100, and the NFC East at +120.
Like the Redskins with a decimated offensive line, or the Cowboys with…Dak Prescott?
