There's a long way to go in this and every other division, but the only thing we ever know about the NFC East is that we have no idea what will happen.

Ezekiel Elliott clears hurdle in Cowboys win

Ezekiel Elliot's development as a runner was on display as he gashed the Bears defense for 140 yards en route to his best game so far this season.

I love it when a star isn't "too cool" to still be a fan! Dabo Swinney told me a hilarious story about meeting Pitt/Dallas Cowboys legend Tony Dorsett: He was at the ACC awards dinner and sees Dorsett. Freaks. "That's TONY DORSETT. I ain't leavin' here til I meet him! "Here I'm about to accept ACC Coach of the Year and I'm all super fan over here." Suddenly, here comes Dorsett, says... "I HAVE to get a picture with you. My agent will die!" Dorsett's agent? A Clemson grad. And then this showed up in the mail.

The Cowboys used Ezekiel Elliott's legs and Dak Prescott's arm to get a 31-17 win against the Chicago Bears. For the first time since the 2015 opener the Cowboys won a game at AT&T Stadium. Next up are the San Francisco 49ers. Could the Cowboys get to 3-1?

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott played like a Top 5 pick tonight. Power, vision and speed through the hole. Elliott finished with 140 yards rushing on 30 carries and he also added 20 yards receiving. I thought Elliott hit the hole with much more acceleration than I saw on film in the first two weeks of the season. He showcased the ability to bounce the ball outside and find cutback lanes. He's a great fit for the Cowboys zone running schemes. Impressive night for the rookie in the Cowboys 31-17 win over the Bears.

The Dallas Cowboys have their first home win in more than a year. Thanks to three rushing touchdowns, a cool Dak Prescott and an impressive Ezekiel Elliott, the Cowboys beat the Chicago Bears, 31-17, to end an eight-losing streak at AT&T Stadium. Prescott has gone 99 passes without an interception and Elliott picked up the first 100-yard game of his career. The Cowboys are staring at 3-1 start with trip to San Francisco next week.
