NFC East Update: Cowboys move ahead but division anything from decided

The Cowboys won a decisive, important game against the Redskins last week. That put Dallas into a tie with Washington for first place.

And for three quarters in Philadelphia, it looked like the Eagles would be basically knocked out of the NFC East title chase. Carson Wentz rallied, and now it appears the Giants are officially done in the division. 

Don't count out the Eagles yet, or the Redskins. And while it might seem the Cowboys will run away with the division title, don't be so sure. 

  1. Dallas Cowboys (6-5, 3-1) - The Cowboys are surging, winners of three in a row, including the blowout win over Washington on Thanksgiving. Dallas is the only team in the NFC East with a positive point differential, and the trade to acquire Amari Cooper has revitalized the Cowboys offense. All that said, Dallas faces the Saints on Thursday. Win that, and the Cowboys belong in a group of real contenders. Lose it? Different conversation. Up next: Nov. 29th vs New Orleans, 8:20 p.m.
  2. Washington Redskins (6-5, 2-1) - Things aren't great for the Redskins right now. The team suffered its first losing streak of the year, with defeats from the Texans and the Cowboys in their last two games. The injuries have piled up, and while Colt McCoy moved the ball well in his first start since 2014, he also turned the ball over three times. The biggest issue in Washington is the defense's sudden inability to stop the run and make simple tackles. Still, the Redskins have winnable games on their schedule remaining, and McCoy can certainly play better with more practice with the first team. Up next: December 3rd @ Philadelphia, 8:15 p.m.
  3. Philadelphia Eagles (5-6, 2-1) - Winning the 2018 Super Bowl will never lose luster in Philadelphia, but it won't matter much this season. The Eagles were about 15 minutes from seeing their playoff hopes ruined for 2019 before coming back against the Giants on Sunday in a 25-22 win. it wasn't pretty, but Carson Wentz didn't turn the ball over and the Eagles were able to run the ball fairly well. If Philly wants to get back to the playoffs, they have to get hot, and their defense has been anything but. It needs to start next week for any hopes of a repeat run. Up next: December 3rd vs Washington, 8:15 p.m.
  4. New York Giants (3-8, 0-4) - Things got kinda fun watching the Giants. They won a few games in a row and seemed like their talent was clicking, especially early in Sunday's game against the Eagles. Now, however, with eight losses in 11 games, close the book on the Giants making the playoffs. New York needs to rebuild, and the questions about Eli Manning's future will be plentiful. Odell Beckham and Saquon Barkley are elite talents, undoubtedly, but the Giants have a boatload of issues. Up next: December 2nd vs Chicago, 1 p.m.

Redskins at Packers Week 14: Date, time, TV channel, live stream, how to watch

The Washington Redskins (3-9) take a two-game winning streak to Wisconsin to take on the Green Bay Packers (9-3).

The game will serve as a reunion for a couple of former Redskins. First-year Packers head coach Matt LaFleur was the Redskins' quarterbacks coach from 2010-2013, and linebacker Preston Smith spent the first four seasons of his career in Washington before joining Green Bay this year.

LaFleur has led the Packers to a 9-3 record, including a 31-13 rout of the New York Giants last week, and Smith leads one of the league's top defenses in sacks. The Redskins took down the underperforming Carolina Panthers 29-21 last week thanks to a dominant performance from Derrius Guice.

The Packers lead the all-time series 20-16-1, however, the Redskins have won the last two matchups, both of which were played at home. Washington's last win in Green Bay came in October 1988.

Dwayne Haskins invites Antonio Brown to play with the Redskins

Dwayne Haskins invites Antonio Brown to play with the Redskins

Can you imagine Antonio Brown catching footballs from Dwayne Haskins in a Redskins uniform? Apparently Haskins can.

Antonio Brown has not suited up for an NFL game since Week 2 of the season. Yet, Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins is all on-board on giving the WR a chance in D.C.

On Friday, Brown posted on Instagram an apology for his actions for anyone that he offended. He admitted to not handling the situations throughout 2019 in the best way possible and called his own actions inexcusable. He also said he is looking to get back to the NFL and mending relationships with the organizations involved. 

View this post on Instagram

First and foremost, I’d like to apologize to my family, friends and anyone who I offended. I never once meant to make anyone feel like I wasn’t thankful and appreciative of the opportunity that I was afforded to play the game I love. I’ve worked hard over the years to earn a chance to compete in the greatest game on earth. Over the years I was met with challenges and I can honestly say I didn’t handle those challenges in the manner that I should have. Over the past few weeks I’ve had the opportunity to think about everything that’s transpired and I am deeply sorry to all who I’ve offended. While my behavior was inexcusable, sometimes when people are coming at you with false information and allegations, we handle ourselves in ways that we sometimes regret. I do take full responsibility for my actions and I’m working everyday to repair what I broke. I do know that if I’m ever given the opportunity to play the game that I love, I’m going to work extremely hard to show the world how much I appreciate another chance. To the organizations that I offended, I offer my sincere apology to you and my hope is that you forgive me and help me move on from this minor setback. I look forward to competing and helping a team reach their goals.

A post shared by Boomin (@ab) on

Haskins replied to the post "Letssss gooo bro. AB to DC" with the looking eyes emoji. During the offseason, the pair of them teamed up for a workout before Haskins even made it to training camp. 

The last year of AB's career has been marred in controversy. He basically stiff-armed his way into a trade out of Pittsburgh, had helmet and feet issues in Oakland, and his stint with the Patriots was cut short due to reports of sexual assault.

Brown is still one of the top talents in the NFL despite not playing for the majority of the season. Wide receiver is still clearly a need for Washington. Don't necessarily expect the Redskins to come calling though after Haskins' endorsement. 

The team has had over 10 weeks to pursue the four-time All-Pro. There have been no reports out of Ashburn in that time.
