Betting Line: -3

After back-to-back wins for Philadelphia and back-to-back losses for Dallas, the Eagles now sit atop the NFC East. This is a very different picture than what we were looking at after Week 3 when the Eagles were 1-2 and Dallas was 3-0.

This week, Philadelphia is headed to Minnesota where they'll challenge the Vikings, fresh off a road win over the Giants.

Kirk Cousins had his best game of the season against the G-men. He posted season highs in passing yards (306), completion percentage (81.5%), yards per pass (11.3), and touchdowns (2). Cousins did not commit a turnover. Minnesota won the game 28-10.

Dalvin Cook has been lighting defenses ablaze. He's the NFL's second-leading rusher. Cook's 410 rushing yards is just one shy of Christian McCaffrey's 411. Cook is averaging 5.8 yards per carry and 102.5 rushing yards per game.

To have success against Philadelphia, Cook will need help attacking the Eagles' rush defense. Philadelphia is ranked 4th in the NFL with just 62 rushing yards allowed per game. They've allowed just two rushing touchdowns through their first five games.

The Eagles put a hurting on an already ailing Jets team. Philly defeated the Jets 31-6. Brandon Graham posted a career-high three sacks and five quarterback hits against New York. The Eagles scored two defensive touchdowns: an INT from Nate Gerry and a strip-sack from Orlando Scandrick. Philadelphia sacked the Jets 10 times, forced two fumbles, and picked off two passes.

Carson Wentz passed for 189 yards and a touchdown. He was sacked just once and threw no interceptions. Jordan Howard rushed 13 times for 62 yards and a touchdown. Zach Ertz caught five passes for a game-high 57 yards and a touchdown.

Phildalphia will need to do a better job of protecting the football. They fumbled the ball three times against the Jets, losing one from Corey Clement. Nelson Agholor is becoming unreliable for Philadelphia. He caught one of three targets for 20 yards, but fumbled the ball.

The Eagles will step up to the occasion just as they did at Green Bay on prime time in Week 4. Carson Wentz and the Eagles offense. Philadelphia will win by at least a touchdown. Take Philly.
