After a Week 6 upset, the Cowboys are closing in on the Eagles.

Few anticipated the Cowboys to reduce the NFC East gap with the Eagles last week, but shocks are common in this league.

Dallas is now a game behind Philadelphia in the NFL's most-watched division race after Week 6.

This unexpected opportunity arose after the Eagles were defeated by the New York Jets on Sunday.

Philly made uncharacteristic mistakes while being held to 14 scores by the Jets' outstanding defense.

Jalen Hurts threw three interceptions and D'Andre Swift fumbled to give New York the victory.

The Cowboys then took care of business against the Chargers on Monday night.

CeeDee Lamb, Micah Parsons, and others made enough critical plays to get the road win and positive momentum going into their bye week.

Washington enjoyed a more impressive road win over the Falcons.

In a game between probable NFC wild card candidates, the Commanders tied Atlanta at 3-3 and earned a potential head-to-head tiebreaker.

Staying at.500 this early in the season helps Ron Rivera survive the organization's shaky morale.
