The Philadelphia Eagles had several standout performances against the desperate Dallas Cowboys in their 37-9 Sunday Night Football win. Pro Football Focus has released their initial grades, here’s how the top five for the Eagles shook out:

CB Patrick Robinson (92.4)

Robinson is now tied for 1st with Los Angeles Rams CB Nickell Robey-Coleman in regard to lowest QB rating when thrown in slot coverage. On Sunday night, Robinson only allowed 3 receptions on 7 targets for 16 yards while notching 2 pass breakups, good for a 50.3 rating. Robinson has played like a top five nickel corner all season and his training camp struggles on the outside seem like a distant memory.

CB Ronald Darby (89.8)

Darby was targeted early an often, allowing 8 catches on 11 throws for 74 yards. His INT boosted his grade, along with his tackling prowess. Darby notched 8 tackles, leading the team, including a perfect 3 for 3 on WR Dez Bryant when they tried testing him on smoke routes. Darby showed no hesitation in his game and looks to be fully recovered from the ankle dislocation that kept him out of action since Week 1.

OG Brandon Brooks (86.6)

Brooks was a key factor in the Eagles achieving 215 rushing yards on the day and has played at a Pro Bowl caliber level all season. Brooks possesses surprising nimbleness for his size and at working combo blocks and climbing to the next level to seal off linebackers with timing and leverage.

LB Nigel Bradham (84.1)

Bradham finished with 5 tackles, 2 run stops and no missed tackles and has fully assumed the role of the signal caller for the defense since LB Jordan Hicks was placed on Injured Reserve. In pass coverage Bradham dropped back 31 times, only seeing 1 target, 1 catch, and 4 yards for a stingy 0.13 yards per coverage snap average.

WR Alshon Jeffery (84.0)

Hauling in 4 of 6 targets for 67 yards, a touchdown, and a two point conversion, Jeffery has had a solid last three weeks totaling a stat line of 12-213-4 in that span. Averaging 2.58 yards per route run, the chemistry between him and QB Carson Wentz seems to be coming together after a slow start to the season.
