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

    1. Dallas Cowboys (5-1) — Talk about a statement. The Cowboys made it by going to Seattle and beating the defending champs in the most difficult stadium to play in the entire league. And the Cowboys did it in dominant fashion with only a couple of special teams flubs separating them from a resounding blowout.

    2. Philadelphia Eagles (5-1) — Lost in the hype of the Cowboys' win over Seattle was the Eagles' demolition of the New York Giants, a team that had won three straight games and seemed to be clicking on all cylinders. The Eagles shut the Giants out while having a bit of a bounce-back game offensively after a couple of sparse weeks.

    3. New York Giants (3-3) — All the momentum the Giants had built heading into Sunday's game in Philly was quickly deflated with an embarrasing loss in the form of a shutout and with the season-ending injury to No. 1 wide receiver Victor Cruz, which was nearly as painful to watch as it had to have been for Cruz. With that said, the Giants will be upset and ready to fight in Arlington this week.

    4. Washington Redskins (1-5) — The Redskins played what might've been their best game of the season with a road loss in Arizona to the first-place Cardinals. But they're still far and away the worst team in what has turned out to be a pretty solid division.
