Thoughts From A Monday Morning Quarterback

Yesterday was an exciting day of Football across the NFL. Included in those games was the Dallas Cowboys traveling to Seattle and beating the defending Super Bowl champions to improve to 5-1 on the year! This is the first time since 1996 that the Cowboys have started 5-1 and they have high hopes of making a serious run this year. This is some tough competition in the NFC East despite Washington having a down year so far. The Philadelphia Eagles shutout the Giants last night to also improve to 5-1 this season. It’s going to be very interesting when the Eagles and Cowboys square off for the first time in Dallas on Thanksgiving, and it could go a long way to determine who wins the division! The only 5-1 team in the AFC is way out west in San Diego, where they beat a scrappy Raiders team 31-28.
