Three weeks later, Jones looks prescient as the Cowboys are in first place in the NFC East.
The Cowboys’ 27-24 overtime win Sunday at the Washington Redskins was their third straight and improved their record to 6-4.
The 17-10 loss suffered by the New York Giants to Philadelphia on Sunday night left them with a 6-4 record.
The Cowboys are in first place thanks to a 2-1 division record. The Giants are 1-2 in the division. The two teams meet twice in December.
And don’t bury the Eagles. While Philadelphia is just 4-6 overall, it is 3-1 in the division and its toughest non-conference games against the New England Patriots and the New York Jets come at home. They play at the Cowboys on Dec. 24.
