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

    1. Dallas Cowboys (10-4) — Look at that, the Cowboys have a double-digit win figure and there are still two weeks to play — pretty impressive. For now the Cowboys hold a pretty firm grip on the top spot after their impressive win in Philadelphia on Sunday night handed the Eagles their second straight loss. Now, the Cowboys control their own destiny with two weeks to play, which is all you can ask for as a Cowboys fan.

    2. Philadelphia Eagles (9-5) — Two straight losses and two straight poor games for Mark Sanchez and the Chip Kelly offense mean the Eagles are in a bit of desperation mode now. Though they have two cupcakes to close the season, a loss would hand the Cowboys the division and essentially eliminate the Eagles from postseason contention. Now, they have to hope for a Cowboys loss to the Colts or Redskins and win out themselves.

    4. Washington Redskins (3-11) — Colt McCoy was placed on injured reserve and Robert Griffin III took back over on Sunday, but couldn't lead the Redskins to a win the Giants. So, it appears the team is now RG3's for the final two weeks, whether Jay Gruden likes it or not.
