Last Thursday, Dallas won their fourth consecutive game and improved to (7-5) with an impressive 13-10 victory over the New Orleans Saints.
New Orleans was held to a season-low and snapped their 10-game winning streak at the hands of a dominant Dallas defense that picked up two sacks and an interception.

Quarterback Dak Prescott was sharp, completing 24-of-28 passes for 248 passing yards and a touchdown.
Dallas is 5-1 at home this season and will have the home-field advantage in their upcoming matchup with Philadelphia.
Philadelphia (6-6) kept their playoff hopes alive after taking down the Washington Redskins 28-13.
Quarterback Carson Wentz and the Philadelphia offense finally looked back to normal, scoring their highest total since defeating the New York Giants 34-13 in Week 6.
Wentz completed 27-of-39 for 306 passing yards, two touchdowns and an interception.
Wide receiver Golden Tate had his best game as an Eagle leading the team with 85 yards on seven receptions, finding the endzone on a two-point conversion and touchdown.
Tight end Zach Ertz continued to be his quarterbacks' safety net, snagging a team-high nine passes for 83 yards.
