NFC East 2021: Cowboys Crush Eagles, Take Control of Division

    It may only be Week 3 but few would deny that the Cowboys are the class of the after these early games. That's now official as Dallas moved to 2-1 after last night's rout of the , making them the only winning team in the division.

    The Cowboys checked a few boxes with the victory; staying above .500, undefeated in division play, a head-to-head win over Philly, and 1-0 at home. Of course there's a lot of season left to render any of these things meaningless, but for now it's the right recipe for winning a division and getting back to the .

    Washington dropped to 1-2 after getting manhandled by the . QB Taylor Heinicke came back to earth with a rough game and the Football Team's ballyhooed had no answer for Josh Allen.

    Meanwhile in New York, the Giants lost at home to the previously winless and are trying to keep pace with the Jets for the worst team in their city. Question are already coming about 's longevity as as Big Blue appears headed for a big implosion.

    Dallas has a good opportunity to maintain their lead, or even build on it, in Week 4. They host the , who are 3-0 but coming off an easy stretch of games. Washington will be on the road against Atlanta and the Eagles will be hosting and the Chiefs.

    And the Giants will be on the road against New Orleans, which I guess is worth mentioning. But only barely.

    I am excited to see our football team if it ever gets to full strength. Also with Carolina, being at home and not having to deal with McCaffery and Jaycee Horn is a big plus.


    This was an authoritative win. I am very interested to see how this team plays against a very solid looking Panthers team next week. I am hoping we stay healthy this week and get a few more players back to help the defensive rotation. The offense looks very sharp and deadly and we still have Gallup and Collins out.

    I’m glad the Panthers are coming in undefeated because this should give us that much more Incentive to blemish their record!

    Soy Vaquero desde que tengo recuerdos porque mi papá veía a este gran equipo en los 70s, me da gusto ver qué el equipo está encontrando un buen ritmo y la defensiva empieza a mejor poco a poco nuestro no. 11 es un gran defensivo, tengo muchas esperanzas este año, se que está lejos este año el juego de Febrero pero van por buen camino
