NFC East Roundup: Latest news, notes & injuries

Week 12 is here, meaning we are closing in on the three-quarter pole of the 2019 regular season.

Each week, we take a look at the state of the NFC East and roundup the biggest storylines for each of the four teams.

Here is what's going on in the NFC East heading into Week 12:

Dallas Cowboys (6-4)

*The Cowboys went on the road and beat the Detroit Lions, 35-27, in Week 11.

*Dak Prescott completed 63.0% of his passes for 444 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions to finish with a 116.6 passer rating. Prescott added six rushes for 18 yards.

*Ezekiel Elliott was held in check, running for just 45 yards on 16 carries (2.8 yards per carry) with a touchdown. Elliott scored a second touchdown through the passing game, finishing with two receptions for 28 yards and the score.

*Michael Gallup put on a strong performance, catching a career-high nine passes for 148 yards, while veteran Randall Cobb had four receptions for 115 yards and a touchdown.

*Michael Bennett enjoyed his best outing as a Cowboy, racking up three tackles (two solo) and two sacks.

*Cornerback Anthony Brown (triceps) and right tackle La'el Collins (knee) suffered injuries during the fourth quarter. Jason Garrett announced Monday that Brown will miss the rest of the season, while Jerry Jones expressed optimism Tuesday that Collins could be on the field this week.

*The Cowboys travel to Foxboro for a Week 12 battle against the New England Patriots (9-1).

Philadelphia Eagles (5-5)

*The Eagles fell to the Patriots at home in Week 11 by a score of 17-10.

*Carson Wentz completed just 50.0% percent of his passes (20-for-40) for 214 yards, one touchdown and zero interceptions, resulting in a 74.4 passer rating. Wentz gained 17 yards on three carries, as well, but was sacked five times and lost a fumble.

*Most of Wentz's production came when targeting his tight ends. Zach Ertz finished with a game-high nine receptions for 94 yards, while Dallas Goedert reeled in three passes for 36 yards and the team's lone touchdown.

*Philadelphia was able to limit the Patriots offense to 298 total yards, only the third game this year in which New England was unable to top 300 total yards.

*All-Pro right tackle Lane Johnson suffered a concussion and his status for Week 12 is up in the air. Running back Jordan Howard was inactive, and it remains to be seen when he will return for the Eagles.

*The Eagles welcome the Seattle Seahawks (8-2) to Lincoln Financial Field in Week 12.

New York Giants (2-8)

*Offensive linemen Mike Remmers (back) and Jon Halapio (hamstring) returned to practice Monday, but their status for Week 12 remains unclear.

*Evan Engram (foot) did not practice Monday; however, he was able to shed his protective walking boot and told the media that "it's definitely possible" he suits up this Sunday.
