Philly even won without playing last Sunday. They were on their bye week and every other team in the NFC East bit the dust. The G-men started imploding a couple months ago. The Skins represent the walking wounded with at least a baker’s dozen questionable for the Vikings game.
The Cowboys lost Zeke Elliott for a few weeks and more importantly were without left tackle, Tyron Smith. The result, everything came up roses for the Eagles and they lengthened their divisional lead to three games without even playing a single down of football. The Steelers also have a three-game lead but mostly because they play in the weakest division in the NFL.
Pittsburgh played a rather sloppy game against the Colts and had to overcome a big deficit to beat the Colts to attain their three-game lead over the Ravens. Three teams that don’t hold three-game leads in their divisions, but still deserve high praise for leading their divisions with 7-2 records, are the Saints, Vikings and Rams.

Chiefs -11 at Giants: The no tackling performance by Janoris Jenkins and company against the Niners pretty much sums up the season for the G-men. Jenkins was either hurting (in which case he should have been removed from the game) or he should be the most embarrassed Giants player watching film this week. McAdoo may not have only lost the team, he might have lost his job. CHIEFS
