Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson is scheduled to undergo surgery Tuesday to repair a core muscle injury, the team announced Monday. Jackson is expected to miss at least six weeks following the operation, which will be performed by Dr. William Meyers in Philadelphia, according to ESPN. The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that Jackson hopes to return to action this season, possibly if the team reaches the playoffs.

Despite injuries and inconsistency, the Philadelphia Eagles enter their bye week right in the thick of the playoff race. The Eagles (5-4) are soaring off to their mini-vacations following consecutive wins after back-to-back lopsided losses. The Cowboys (4-3) faced the New York Giants on Monday night.

Week 4 of the 2019 NFL season begins Thursday night with an excellent NFC matchup. The Philadelphia Eagles started the season as one of the Super Bowl favorites, but now they find themselves with a 1-2 record going into a hostile road environment against the Green Bay Packers. The Packers are one of four 3-0 teams in the NFC, and their improvement on defense has many Green Bay fans envisioning another Super Bowl appearance.

The Philadelphia Eagles signed former New York Giants quarterback Kyle Lauletta to their practice squad along with eight other players. Wide receivers Greg Ward and Marcus Green, tight ends Alex Ellis and Josh Perkins, defensive tackle Bruce Hector, guard Sua Opeta, running back Boston Scott, and linebacker Alex Singleton also were added to the 10-man squad Sunday, leaving one spot available. Lauletta was drafted in the fourth round out of Richmond in 2018.

If you were to take part in several mock drafts, you can get an idea of how happy you would be with your team if you draft one of these tight ends early. The next tier of TEs is where I'm much more interested in investing in. I'll take an O.J. Howard, Evan Engram, or Hunter Henry in rounds 5-7 in every draft.

While Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper wait to get paid, Ezekiel Elliott wants his money now. The Dallas Cowboys have another obstacle standing in their way as they try to become the first team to win consecutive NFC East titles since the Philadelphia Eagles did it four straight seasons from 2001-04. Contract issues could knock Dallas off track.

With an overall rating of 89, the Philadelphia Eagles are the highest rated team in the game. They edged out the Dallas Cowboys (88), New Orleans Saints (87), New England Patriots (87) and Green Bay Packers (87). The lowest ranked teams in the game are the Miami Dolphins (74), followed by the New York Giants (77).

The Giants made some big changes heading into the 2019 season -- the obvious being the departure of stars like Odell Beckham Jr., Landon Collins, and Olivier Vernon. Will it be enough to fight for an NFC East division title? Many know how tough the NFC East can be, with no team winning the division in back-to-back seasons since the Eagles won four straight from 2001-2004.
