In a weekly post, we'll talk about where teams in the NFC East sit after each weekend of play.

1. Philadelphia Eagles (3-1) — Despite not really playing a good, solid game yet, the Eagles are sitting alone atop the NFC East after topping the New York Giants on Sunday night, staving off a last-second field goal that fell short to give the Eagles and Michael Vick the win. It was the first game of the season that Vick didn't commit multiple turnovers. In fact, he had zero as he threw for 249 yards and a TD while rushing for another 49 yards. This is the most talented team in the division. Look out if they start playing like it.

2. New York Giants (2-2) — The Cowboys beat the Giants in Week 1, but the Giants haven't laid a stinker like the Cowboys did on Monday night. And again, they were within a few feet of beating the Eagles on Sunday night in Philly. They're still very much in the picture.

3. Dallas Cowboys (2-2) — Yuck. That's about all you can say about Monday night's performance against the Chicago Bears. Tony Romo threw five interceptions, some of which were his fault, and the running game was once again almost completely absent. That's not a recipe for success.

4. Washington Redskins (2-2) — The Redskins had a win over the Tampa Bay Bucs that was similar to the Cowboys' win over Tampa Bay in Week 3, managing just a field goal in the second half and nearly spoiling another stellar performance from rookie QB Robert Griffin III. Based off performances so far this season, there's a pretty clear divide between the top two and bottom two teams in this division, but the Redskins aren't far from passing the Cowboys.
