Most experts predicted that the Cowboys or the Giants would win the NFC East in 2017.
Those experts don't look so hot right now.
The Giants offense appears incapable of doing much and the Cowboys got exposed visiting Denver.
Meawhile, after a tough opening week loss to the Eagles, the Redskins are right back in the thick of the NFC East race following a big win in LA.
Here's the NFC East update:
RELATED: WEEK 2 NFL POWER RANKINGS
- Dallas Cowboys (1-1, 1-0 NFC East) - Things looked well and good in Dallas in their season opening win over the Giants, but when the Cowboys went to Denver, they got exposed. Dallas mustered just 268 yards of total yards and their run game got nothing done. Ezekiel Elliott ran for only eight yards on nine carries, and on a few plays, his effort was questioned. The Broncos showed that perhaps the best way to play the Cowboys is to load up against the run and force Dak Prescott to pass. Plus, don't forget the fluid legal situation with Elliott. It remains possible he could be forced to serve his pending six-game suspension at some point this season. Next: @ Arizona.
- Philadelphia Eagles (1-1, 1-0) - The Eagles logged an impressive road win to start the year in Washington, breaking a five-game losing streak to the Redskins. The road success did not continue Sunday in Kansas City, however, as former Philadelphia coach Andy Reid beat the Eagles 27-20. The Philly run game struggled, again, but second-year QB Carson Wentz built off his impressive performance against the Redskins with another 300-yard plus passing day against the Chiefs. Next: Home vs. NY Giants.
- Washington Redskins (1-1, 0-1) - Redskins QB Kirk Cousins has not been impressive yet this season, but Jay Gruden said that his team's passing game is close to breaking out. The difference for Washington in Week 2 came from a strong run game. The Redskins piled up 229 rush yards against the Rams en route to a solid 27-20 road win. The Redskins have plenty of concerns, including injuries to RB Rob Kelley and TE Jordan Reed, but a resurgent defense has kept them in winnable situations thus far in the year. Next: Home vs Raiders.
- New York Giants (0-2, 0-1) - By far the biggest surprise in the NFC East through two weeks would be the ineffective play from the New York offense. Poor offensive line blocking is rendering Eli Manning and the Big Blue ground game pretty useless. The Giants looked outmatched against the Cowboys in Week 1, and suffered an embarassing home loss on Monday Night Football to the Lions in Week 2. In that game, Manning threw for only 238 yards and was sacked five times. Odell Beckham missed Week 1 with an ankle injury. He returned in Week 2 but was held largely in check, making just four catches for 36 yards. Next: @ Philadelphia.
