NFC East Roundup: Week 4 in the books

eagles10118 takes a look around the division following Week 4: 

Washington Redskins (2-1)

• Washington sits on top of the division following a Week 4 bye. 

• The break came at the perfect time for the Redskins, who were dealing with a number of injuries to key players. Left guard Shawn Lauvao missed the game against Green Bay with a calf injury and right tackle Morgan Moses left the game with a concussion. Running back Adrian Peterson was dealing with an ankle injury throughout the matchup. Left tackle Trent Williams underwent a minor surgery to clean up his knee, which he's been dealing with throughout the season. Left guard Brandon Scherff also has a knee injury. 

• "It's good for us now," Redskins coach Jay Gruden said heading into the break. "Brandon needs the bye week, obviously Trent needs the bye week, Morgan needs the bye week. We're a little bit beat up on the offensive line. Shawn Lauvao needs the bye week. Obviously, AP needs the bye week, so offensively it really came at a pretty good time. Defensively I think we probably could have used it a little bit later, but we're in good shape right now on defense, but offensively it came at a good time."

• The Redskins will take on the Saints in New Orleans on Monday night at 8:15 p.m.

Philadelphia Eagles (2-2)

• Philadelphia lost in the final seconds of overtime, 26-23, to Tennessee. 

• Quarterback Carson Wentz went 33 of 50 for 348 yards and two touchdowns while wide receiver Alshon Jeffery made a splash in his 2018 debut with eight catches for 105 yards and a touchdown. 

• The Eagles had eight penalties in the game, including two that extended Tennessee's final drive in overtime. 

• Inactives for the game included RB Corey Clement, RB Darren Sproles, OT Jordan Mailata, OT Matt Pryor, QB Nate Sudfeld, DE Josh Sweat, and OG Chance Warmack. 

• The Eagles return home to take on the Vikings Sunday at 4:25 p.m.

Dallas Cowboys (2-2)

• Dallas beat Detroit, 26-24, on a game-winning field goal as time expired.
