Dallas Cowboys Fall to 2nd in NFC East, can Reclaim Lead With Week 7 Win

The NFC East race is heating up, can the Dallas Cowboys keep pace?

The Dallas Cowboys have suddenly fallen from their perch atop the East division after the Philadelphia Eagles Week 7 22-21 victory over the New York Giants on . The Cowboys however still have a chance to reclaim the divisional lead if they can somehow beat the Washington Football Team Sunday afternoon.

Current NFC East Divisional Standings

  1. Philadelphia Eagles 2-4-1
  2. Dallas Cowboys 2-4
  3. Washington Football Team 1-5
  4. New York Giants 1-6

A Week 7 victory for the Dallas Cowboys is anything but a sure thing. When the Cowboys and Washington play one another it's always a slobber knocker type of game. I expect much of the same this week, despite how poorly both teams have been playing through the first six weeks of the .

The Dallas Cowboys are unfortunately having to plug hole after pole due to injuries just to keep the ship from sinking already this season. Injuries have decimated their , lost them there starting QB, and caused a leaky up to this point in the year. No doubt they are the walking wounded right now with little hope in sight.

If the Dallas Cowboys want to reclaim the top spot in the NFC East division and keep their playoff hopes alive, this Week 7 matchup with the Washington Football Team is a “must win”. The same can be said about next week's game against the Philadelphia Eagles as well. To lose either or both will make them plummet in the divisional standings.

With all of that in mind, there's a lot on the line for the Dallas Cowboys. Losing this week or next would all but seal their fate this year, however, a victory at the very least keeps hope alive. Of course in order to keep that hope alive they need to take care of business Sunday afternoon first against Washington. After that, your guess is as good as mine.

Do you think the Dallas Cowboys can reclaim the lead in the NFC East?

What do you think?

  1. Gary b…. I thought we had 10 draft picks in the next draft?? I can’t remember exactly where they came from, but I was sure we had 10!! I know we get a 3rd or 4th for Byron Jones and then we get a 4th or 5th for Robert Quinn, and I’m not sure about the rest…. Maybe, M.Collins, Witten and Heath!? I can’t say for sure, I just think the last thing I heard was we were getting 10 draft picks in the next draft!!

  2. I have been a fan of this team since 1977 and have to be honest here, until Jerry is out of the picture there will be no more titles.His micromanaging, control freak nature has been the roadblock since 1996, he needs to hire an actual gm and a top tier coach and stay out of the way..but we know that won’t happen and I fear I will not see another championship in my lifetime..his ego simply will not let someone else take charge for fear of him not getting the credit…

  3. I’m with u Justin! We need playmakers and difference makers. We need to rebuild this team thru the draft. We have 9 picks in this coming draft, including compensatory picks. Maybe we can acquire a few more by trading the tradeable assets that are unlikely to be resigned next yr namely Griffen and A Smith, though A Smith may bring more as a compensatory pick.

  4. For me it was laughable that the Eagles are in first place. I’d much rather the Cowboys just face facts and realize injuries have derailed our entire season. Get a too pick and draft a blue chip defensive player and let the Eagles get rolled by either Saints, Bucs, Bears, Packers or the entire NFC east. Thats what will happen as the 4th seed and id rather get a top pick than have the a mid 1st round pick.

  5. I always hope for the best. But being a realist tells me this team is in rebuild mode. Thus any decisions henceforth needs to be with next season and beyond in mind. But Jerry would never admit that to himself or the fan base. So we’ll stumble thru the rest of this season under the false illusion we can turn things around while failing to make decisions that would help us in the future. Don’t mean to be overly negative, but I think the sooner we approach this in full rebuild mode the sooner we can get this thing turned around.

  6. If Martin is able to play and Erving can provide a decent showing, our O-line may be able to patchwork a halfway OK effort. Of course, in order for us to have a chance to win, Zeke has to play better than his recent effort(s). Like it or not, he is still a major piece. Hopefully Dalton will settle in a bit better. On D, I guess getting Gregory back is a plus, and hopefully A Smith is healthy enough to play. Second game for LVE. Lots of question marks any way you slice it. Let’s hope for the best.
