Following a pair of tough road losses against the Detroit Lions and Washington Redskins, the Philadelphia Eagles bounced back against the Minnesota Vikings with a 21-10 victory. Philadelphia's dominant defense helped hand Minnesota their first loss of the 2016 season.

Rookie quarterback Dak Prescott has been impressive in place of Tony Romo, and fellow rookie running back Ezekiel Elliot has broken out the way many predicted he would when he was drafted. This week is also the return of wide receiver Dez Bryant from his knee injury.

The Dallas Cowboys were considered by many to be preseason favorites in the NFC East and they are tied for the best record in the conference, but it's the Philadelphia Eagles that have emerged as arguably the best team in the National Football League after seven weeks according to Football Outsiders DVOA.

Tonight in Arlington, Texas, the Cowboys are 4.5-point favorites, but the Eagles are certainly capable of pulling off the road win.
