In a weekly post, we'll talk about where teams in the NFC East sit after each weekend of play.
1. New York Giants (6-4) — Coming off a bye week, the Giants welcome the Green Bay Packers to the new Meadowlands for a Sunday night primetime NBC game. The Packers aren't the Packers of a couple of years ago, but they're still a very solid football team. We'll know Sunday night if the bye week was beneficial to the Giants, who just looked lethargic and tired. A loss could mean trouble if the Cowboys handle their business.
2. Dallas Cowboys (5-5) — The Cowboys are .500 for the first time this year after winning back-to-back games for the first time this year. But it's hard to say the Cowboys are "surging" after watching them win on Sunday over the Cleveland Browns in overtime. The Cowboys' offensive line is atrocious and Tony Romo is likely to be killed on the field before season's end. But a win on Turkey Day could pull them into a first-place tie.
3. Washington Redskins (4-6) — The Redskins aren't out of this thing either. They can run the ball and they have the most dynamic, electrifying rookie quarterback to come along in some time. Last week, Robert Griffin III was 14-for-15 with four touchdown passes and no interceptions. Yes, you read that right. Now, it was against the Philadelphia Eagles...
4. Philadelphia Eagles (3-7) — The Eagles might be the worst team in the league right now, and for the rest of the season. They are just atrocious and they're playing pocket-passing rookie quarterback with an offensive line that makes the Cowboys' look like the Cowboys' lines of the early 1990s. That's not a good formula.
