Playing under the franchise tag, the 28-year-old has a chance to double his previous career high in sacks with two of them in the final two weeks. He's also brought steady pressure in general and has been the best run defender on the team, and one of the best in the entire league.

"I hope so," Spencer said this week when asked that question, according to ESPNDallas.com's Todd Archer. "We'll see. I don't control that stuff, guys."

On to what else is being talked about in the league's most popular division...
From CSN Houston: Pretty soon, the Cowboys won't even have the largest video board in the state of Texas.
From Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News: defensive coordinator Perry Fewell is confident that the pass rush can still be revived.
Vacchiano also notes that Victor Cruz leads all NFC wide receivers in Pro Bowl voting.
Mike McCoy, Greg Roman and Chip Kelly are PhillyMag.com's Tim McManus's top three candidates to coach the Eagles in 2013.
From Mark Maske of the Washington Post: DeAngelo Hall says he never threatened to kill an official.
From Dan Daly of the Washington Times: If the Redskins can finish 2-0 to win the division, they'll have won seven straight games. The last four times they did that, they won the NFC championship.
