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

1. Washington Redskins (7-7) — Somehow, this team is becoming more and more clearly the best team in this awful division. Yes, a team quarterbacked by Kirk Cousins and coached by Jay Gruden is seemingly in line to win a division title. They've won two straight, and Cousins is actually playing out of his mind, and they still have a date with last-place Dallas. Next up: Sunday, noon, at Philadelphia Eagles.

2. Philadelphia Eagles (6-8) — This is more about the Giants' trouble than the Eagles' worth, but Philly finds itself in the second spot this week with a chance to pull into a first-place tie with a win over the Redskins at home, a game in which they're favored by three points. Next up: Sunday, noon, vs. Washington Redskins.

3. New York Giants (6-8) — The Giants have a lot going against them. They're on the road. They're playing a 9-5 Vikings team that is hot at the moment, and they're most likely without star receiver Odell Beckham, who will have his appeal of his one-game suspension heard Wednesday afternoon, but a win for Beckham isn't likely. Next up: Sunday, 7:30 p.m., at Minnesota Vikings.

4. Dallas Cowboys (4-10) — Nothing to see here. Move along. Next up: Sunday, noon, at Buffalo Bills.
