The Philadelphia Eagles are on a tear to begin the year. This team has been downright dominant on both sides of the ball, and their plethora of talent has been on full display during their 5-0 start.

Week 5 featured another standout performance from one of Philadelphia's studs, and that's resulted in an impressive streak continuing.

Cameron Dicker stepped up in a big way for the Eagles during their Week 5 win over the Arizona Cardinals, and he's earned Player of the Week honors as a result. That makes it five straight weeks with a Philadelphia player earning the POTW award, as Dicker has now joined Zach McPherson, Darius Slay, Brandon Graham and Haason Reddick in the club.

Dicker's Player of the Week win is even more impressive given the fact he was Philadelphia's replacement for starter Jake Elliott, who was sidelined due to an ankle injury. Dicker rose to the occasion, nailing both field goal and PAT attempts, which proved pivotal in a tight 20-17 win.

Though Elliott's return will likely squeeze Dicker out, the latter should be in-demand around the league after his performance.

The Eagles will look to keep their POTW streak alive in Week 6 against the Dallas Cowboys. FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds peg Philadelphia as 6-point favorites ahead of that Sunday Night Football clash.
