The top two teams from the NFC East started to separate themselves from the rest of the division. On Sunday, the Philadelphia Eagles simply outclassed the winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a 31-20 victory. With Nick Foles at the helm, the Eagles’ offense soared with the passing game. During Monday's press conference, Chip Kelly did not make a decision on who would start at quarterback for the Eagles against Dallas.
The Dallas Cowboys kept pace to stay atop the NFC East with Philadelphia. Their Sunday night victory over Washington pushed the Cowboys to .500 at (3-3). The Redskins fell to (1-4).
The lowly Giants fell to (0-6) on Thursday night football. Their loss to the Bears was the 11th in the last 14 games. There are no more silver linings when it comes to the G-Men. New York simply does not have the talent to get the job done on the field.
While no team in the NFC East is above .500, you can feasibly see one of the front runners earning a wild card spot for the first time. However, the two division leaders face off for sole possession of first place on Sunday.
