The Dallas Cowboys will be playing a game against the New York Giants on Sunday, and if they win they will officially be the Kings of the NFC East in 2016.
Somewhere out in Philadelphia though, the Eagles already know that… and so much more. We know, for sure, that a member of the Philadelphia Eagles views Dak Prescott as the second best player in the NFL and Ezekiel Elliott as the third.
NFL Films, the best in the business when it comes to sports movies, are currently on tour across all NFL teams taking votes for the annual NFL Top 100 list that comes out in the middle of the offseason. They go do the polling at this time because players are all still in the facilities.
NFL Films posted on their Snapchat that Eagles players were filling out their ballots and even named Jon Dorenbos, Carson Wentz, Fletcher Cox, Darren Sproles, and Steve Means specifically. Maybe this list that we can see is one of theirs, maybe it’s someone else’s, the point is is that the Eagles obviously fear Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott a great deal.
The NFL Top 100 is typically a prisoner-of-the-moment sort of list to be totally fair, but it is pretty neat to see just how much the Eagles players themselves acknowledge the greatness of the Cowboys rookies. To put this properly in context… whichever Eagle filled this out literally believes that the only player in the whole NFL better than Dak or Zeke is Tom Brady. Incredible.
