The Pittsburgh Steelers and the Philadelphia Eagles both clinched NFL division titles on Sunday and moved a step closer to gaining homefield advantage in the playoffs. Philadelphia's star QB Wentz injured his left knee late in the third quarter of the Eagles' 43-35 win over the Los Angeles Rams amid fears he may have a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Wentz, who is among the leading NFL MVP candidates, will have an MRI on Monday.

You don’t have to be in Philadelphia long to understand how much the city loves Carson Wentz. Your Uber driver can’t wait to bring up Wentz and the Philadelphia Eagles’ great season. Wentz is only in his second season, but Philadelphia is all-in on Wentzmania.

The Philadelphia Eagles clinched the NFC East divisional crown with a roller coaster victory over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday but saw star quarterback Carson Wentz exit early with a serious knee injury. Wentz threw for 291 yards and four touchdowns before limping off in the third quarter as the Eagles held on to claim a pulsating 43-35 victory at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

While the Dallas Cowboys are starting to pick up a little momentum, the question is do they have enough time to make the playoffs? Dak Prescott threw three touchdowns and the Cowboys scored 20 fourth-quarter points in less than five minutes in beating the New York Giants 30-10 to stay in the playoff hunt with three weeks left in the regular season. The win was the second straight for the Cowboys (7-6) and it spoiled return of Eli Manning as the Giants' starting quarterback and Steve Spagnuolo's debut as interim head coach in the wake of the firing of Ben McAdoo earlier in the week.

The return of two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning to the New York Giants' starting lineup a week after being benched didn't have a storybook ending. It was like many of the Giants' games this season. Manning even threw a couple of late interceptions to contribute to New York's 11th loss in 13 games in this dreadful season.

DeMarcus Lawrence is going to be getting a bill from the league this week, but he’s just fine with that. Lawrence celebrated the Dallas Cowboys’ 30-10 dismantling of the woeful New York Giants by ripping the game’s officials a new one. Cowboys DE Demarcus Lawrence goes on an explosive rant about officiating, in particular, a lack of holding calls by linemen against him.

Dak Prescott threw three touchdown passes and the desperate Dallas Cowboys beat New York 30-10 Sunday to spoil Steve Spagnuolo's debut as interim coach and the return of quarterback Eli Manning to the Giants' starting lineup. Prescott threw a go-ahead 20-yard score to tight end Jason Witten with 7:38 to play to break a 10-all tie. Rod Smith scored on an 81-yard pass play with 4:08 to play and he added a 15-yard scoring run a little more than a minute later after an interception by linebacker Sean Lee. Prescott, who was 20 of 30 for 332 yards also threw a 50-yard scoring pass to Dez Bryant as the Cowboys (7-6) stayed in the playoff hunt with three games left in the regular season. Dan Bailey added

The circumstances that led to Eli Manning’s consecutive-game streak ending were unnecessary and unfortunate, but it led to a heck of a moment for the New York Giants quarterback. Manning started on Sunday after he was re-installed as quarterback once Ben McAdoo was fired as head coach. Not that Manning couldn’t have guessed what he has meant to Giants fans over his career, but that moment had to be special for him.
