16. Philadelphia Eagles (7-7)
Recap: The Eagles might have won by two scores over the Redskins, but the game was a hell of a lot closer than that. Philly was trailing 27-24 in the fourth quarter before orchestrating a 75-yard drive to take the lead. The Eagles closed the game out with a 47-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown by Nigel Bradham.
Outlook: With the win, the Eagles keep pace in the NFC Least with the Cowboys, who notched a blowout win over the Rams and still hold on to first place via head-to-head record. That could change next week, as both teams walk into a showdown for first place with one another at 7-7. If the Cowboys win, the Eagles will be eliminated from NFC East contention.
15. Dallas Cowboys (7-7)
Recap: Desperately needing a win in Week 15 to stay slightly ahead of the Eagles by tiebreaker and put an end to their horrid three-game losing streak, the Cowboys answered the bell and crushed the Rams 44-21 in what was a surprising result to say the least.
Outlook: The Cowboys remain in first place in the worst division in football thanks to the win, although a Week 16 showdown with the Eagles could change that if they lose. If the Cowboys do win, they’ll clinch the NFC East.
