Sunday Night Football, week 8. Tonight we have an NFC East showdown in Arlington Texas. The surprising 4-2 Philadelphia Eagles travel to Arlington to take on the equally surprising 5-1 Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium. First place in the division is on the line. The Cowboys are led on offense by a pair of exciting rookies. Rookie quarterback Dak Prescott has surprised everyone with his outstanding play in Tony Romo's absence. Playing behind the best offensive line in the NFL, Prescott has been supported by fellow rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott, who has been tearing it up on the ground.

The Eagles come into the game led by their own rookie prodigy at quarterback, Carson Wentz, who has performed admirably after most thought he would need a year to develop before being thrust into a starting role. The Eagles also feature a dynamic defense, currently ranked first in sacks per game, third in points per game, fifth in yards per game, and third in turnovers. Eagles #1 pass rush and great defense against Cowboys best offensive line in football and two dynamic rookies. A grudge match for first place in the NFC East. This matchup is one of the best NFL prime time games this season. For football aficionados this is must see TV.
