PFF Grades: Philadelphia Eagles are the highest rated team in NFL

The Eagles maintained a stranglehold on the NFC East with a hard-fought 26-17 win over the Cowboys at Lincoln Financial Field in Week 6.

A.J. Brown led Philadelphia with five catches for 67 yards and one touchdown in a highly intense contest against Dallas cornerback Trevon Diggs.

With the team about 32 hours away from returning to the NovaCare Complex, here are the PFF grades for all 32 teams, with the Birds as the highest-graded squad.
