Tell us why you hate Dallas Cowboys fans - BGN
The big question for today: Why do you hate Dallas Cowboys fans? (Leave us your answers in the comments)

This Week in Fantasy - Week 11 Lineups -
James Seltzer and Sigmund Bloom break down every game on the Week 11 NFL slate. Plus, for the first time ever, we have dueling Inside the Minds of both Sigmund Bloom and James Seltzer.

Five over/unders for Eagles vs. Cowboys on Sunday Night Football - PhillyVoice
Dak Prescott was sacked eight times last week against the Falcons. EIGHT! The Cowboys will likely make some adjustments to give a bit of help to that left side of their line, but the Eagles have one of the best defensive fronts in the game. And without the threat of Elliott beating them on the ground, look for Jim Schwartz to unleash a healthy dose of pressure on Prescott Sunday night.

Whole Lotta Crazy - Iggles Blitz
Having a healthy team as you go hit the heart of the season is huge. This is when you want to start to peak. The Eagles are coming off a pair of blowout wins and do seem to be trending in the right direction. Winning is good, but playing at a high level is even better. The Giants went 11-5 last year, but had a lot of ugly, close wins in there. They got to the postseason and were blown out by the Packers. The postseason will tell you who is a good team and who isn’t. The Eagles are no fraud. This team is legit, in part because they are healthy. They have moved past the injuries and the replacements have settled into their roles, some even thriving.

A Roaring Welcome And Key Matchups -
DALLAS - An upbeat and energetic Eagles team landed in Dallas-Fort Worth on Saturday afternoon and reached its hotel, welcomed by fans eager to show their love. It is very simple what is ahead in Dallas: beat the Cowboys and take a four-game lead in the NFC East with six to play, and set sights on the bigger picture.

From weight loss to pass pro, Corey Clement earning Eagles' trust - The Athletic
Another opportunity presented itself to Clement early in the season when Sproles was lost for the year. Not only did that mean carries were up for grabs, but the Eagles needed to identify someone else in their running back stable who could pass protect on third down. While Smallwood got the first crack, Clement was making strides behind the scenes. Two weeks ago against Denver, with Jay Ajayi now in town, Clement seemed to grab the “third-down back” brass ring, playing a season-high 40.6-percent of the offensive snaps. He scored three touchdowns on the day, but the more meaningful breakdown in terms of his importance to the Eagles moving forward were the 12 snaps the Eagles asked a running back to pass protect. Clement was the one trusted with the responsibility 11 times.

Biggest Week 11 NFL questions, stats and predictions - ESPN
Can Dak slay the first-place Eagles without Zeke? From the moment Dak Prescott began tasting success in this league, he has had his share of doubters who ask: Is he really that good, or is he being lifted up by one of the best offensive lines and running backs in the game? Sunday night presents a perfect opportunity to silence the skeptics, as Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys host the 8-1 Philadelphia Eagles without the services of Ezekiel Elliott (suspension) and perhaps left tackle Tyron Smith (groin). Missing both players last week, Prescott was sacked eight times and Dallas was handled by the Atlanta Falcons 27-7. The loss dropped the Cowboys to 5-4 on the year.

The fantasy matchup stats you need to know for Week 11 - PFF
Fade Alfred Morris. With the Ezekiel Elliott suspension finally settled, Morris is locked in as the lead early-down back until Week 16. However, fantasy owners may want to look elsewhere this week. Morris gets a rough matchup against an Eagles defense that allows a league-low 2.8 yards per carry to opposing running backs.

Eagles’ view: “There’s not a whole lot about the Cowboys’ offense that scares me right now.” - Blogging The Boys
The Dallas Cowboys are preparing to host the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night, in a game that Dallas really needs to win. Can they pull off the upset? We talked to Bleeding Green Nation to get the lowdown on what the Eagles are up to, and how the game may play out.

Who Is Ben McAdoo, and Can He Reclaim the Giants? - Sports Illustrated
Those who’ve worked with McAdoo in previous spots say he’s driven, hard-working and personable. But as his tenure running the Giants reaches a critical point, the question is whether he has the right qualities to run an NFL team.

Jerry Jones threatened to go after Roger Goodell ‘with everything I have’ - SB Nation
This all comes back to Ezekiel Elliott, and Jones isn’t likely to let this go.
