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. Philadelphia Eagles (1-2) — The Eagles beat a good Jets team last week as Ryan Mathews became the first Eagles running back to top the 100-yard mark with DeMarco Murray out with an injury. Sam Bradford still looked very pedestrian, but at this point, the Eagles are likely the best team in the division. Next up: Sunday, noon, at Washington Redskins.

2. Dallas Cowboys (2-1) — We saw the Cowboys' offense sans Tony Romo on Sunday and it looked pretty good for a half, then awful in the second half as the Cowboys collapsed and blew a big lead partly because the defense couldn't stop anything and partly because they were on the field too much. They have a head-to-head win over the Eagles, but at the moment, they're taking a back seat. Next up: Sunday, 7:25 p.m., at New Orleans Saints.

3. New York Giants (1-2) — The Giants scored their first win over what appeared to be a running machine in the Washington Redskins. Still, they almost blew it late, as they had in their first two games of the year — both losses in fourth-quarter blown leads. Next up: Sunday, noon, at Buffalo Bills.

4. Washington Redskins (1-2) — See above. The Giants worked over the Redskins before a late rally fell short. Next up: Sunday, noon, vs. Philadelphia Eagles.
