As Week 8 of the NFL season draws to a close on Halloween night, the league continues to build.

Some of those teams kept their playoff hopes alive with a win.

While others took the lead of their division.

There has been a lot of movement in the standings this week.

But, these three teams came out as big winners on Sunday.

1. Dallas Cowboys

Facing the Chicago Bears at home before their bye week could have been a trick game for Dallas.

But, they came out on fire and hammered the Bears.

Scoring touchdowns on each of their first four drives, the Cowboys quickly took a 28-7 lead.

Although they got the Bears back in the game in the second half, the Cowboys closed hard to win 49-29.

Running back Tony Pollard was the star of the game, scoring three touchdowns in a game where Ezekiel Elliott did not play.

It was a Dallas offensive clinic as Dak Prescott looked like himself in his second game.

The Cowboys now enter their bye week at 6-2 and look like one of the best teams in football.

2. San Francisco 49ers

The three certainties in life should be death, taxes and the 49ers beating the Rams in the regular season.

San Francisco extended its regular season winning streak against the Rams to eight games with the 31-14 victory.

This week was Christian McCaffrey’s show.

In his second game with the Niners, the star running back scored three touchdowns.

San Francisco is now one game in the NFC West standings, behind the Seattle Seahawks.

3. Atlanta Falcons

In one of Sunday’s best games, the Falcons and Panthers battled it out for the top spot in the NFC South.

The game was tied 34-34 going into overtime as the Panthers tied the game on a Hail Mary with 12 seconds left.

Atlanta ultimately prevailed in overtime after hitting a field goal to win the game, 37-34.

With the win, the Falcons improved to 4-4 on the year and took sole possession of first place in the South.

In one of the worst divisions in football, the Falcons could sneak into the playoffs.
