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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
