A week of reflection might be exactly what the Philadelphia Eagles needed. Chip Kelly’s team hasn’t lived up to its preseason billing of Super Bowl contenders, but rather an average team in a poor division. Amazingly, at 3-4 the Eagles are just a game out of the division lead.

A huge game awaits in primetime against the Tony Romo-less Cowboys, who have lost five straight since Romo broke his collarbone, which happened to be in a win over the Eagles.

A loss hands the series sweep to Dallas just in time for Romo’s return, but a win evens it up and opens up a two-game lead over the Cowboys. This division could potentially be won on eight or nine wins. Philadelphia has a shot.

Next: No. 15
