EARLY SUNDAY GAMES

Jacksonville Jaguars @ Indianapolis Colts The Colts finally showed us some of their offensive potential with a last second TD pass to beat the Jags. The Colts hold on to 11th and the Jags stay at 12th in the AFC PR’s.

Arizona Cardinals @ Seattle Seahawks The Seattle defense stepped up to the plate against a Cardinals offense loaded with talent. Arizona’s offense was TD-less as the Seahawks won 19-9. The Seahawks have now climbed to 8th in the PR’s.
Dallas Cowboys @ Philadelphia Eagles If a team in the NFL looks unbeatable, it is the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles victim Sunday night was the Cowboys, to the tune of 26-17. The Eagles finally take the top spot in the NFC PR’s.
