Power Rankings: NFC East



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

    1. Dallas Cowboys (3-1) — The Cowboys have won three straight games, and none were more impressive than Sunday night's domination of Drew Brees and the Saints, a year after the script was flipped the other way. The Cowboys' defense might not be great, but it's playing with tons of confidence and is getting a big boost from DeMarco Murray and the Cowboys' running game. Oh, and Tony Romo? He's been awesome, too.

    2. Philadelphia Eagles (3-1) — The Eagles fall a spot after Sunday's loss in San Francisco, due mainly to the fact their offense was shut out and they have no running game to speak of — the complete opposite of the Cowboys right now. At this point, Eagles fans have to hope that Nick Foles stays in one piece as teams are starting to pin their ears back and go after him.

    3. New York Giants (2-2) — The Giants have won two straight and looked dominant in their win over Washington, as Eli Manning had a great game and running back Rashad Jennings approached a 200-yard rushing outing. Now, the Redskins are awful, but the win was still impressive.

    4. Washington Redskins (1-3) — They're just bad. Worse yet, it appeared on Thursday night that savior Kirk Cousins was nothing more than a fluke and probably had some folks re-thinking their idea that he's better than Robert Griffin III.
