Another week of football has gone by and the NFC East is becoming one of the League’s tightest divisions. The ’Boys had a BYE week and lost the top of the East to the Eagles which grabbed a very important W against the Redskins, and silently the New York Giants which started 0-6 are escalating. So, it’s a bit early to take the Skins out of the race, but it looks like the division will go to one of the other 3 teams.
Let’s review last week´s games:
- Washington Redskins @ Philadelphia Eagles Loss 16-24
Nick Foles had a good game with 298 yards and a rushing TD and no picks. He’s more comfortable with the starting job and you can see that the guy is getting a better grip on Chip Kelly’s offense. RB Lesean Mccoy had a great game with two rushing TDs, 77 rushing yards and 73 receiving yards.
On the other side the Redskins couldn’t get their offense going till late in the game tried to come back with a 4th quarter comeback but RGIII was intercepted by Brandon Boykin in the end zone, ending a 10 game losing streak for Philly at Lincoln Financial Field.
Washington Redskins Record: 3-7 Philadelphia Eagles Record: 6-5
Division record: 0-2 Division record: 3-2
Next Game vs. San Francisco 49s Next Game vs. Arizona Cardinals
- New York Giants vs. Green Bay Packers Win 27-13
I’m getting a mild deja vú here. The Giants are starting to pick up some good wins, and looking more as division contender. This, as a Cowboys fan scares the hell out of me.
You know what else scares me? JPP is back, last week’s he made a not only predicted but amazing leaping pick 6 to prove it. Fellow teammate Justin Tuck said Sunday night that JPP said he was going to pick the ball, even before seeing GBs formations or anything.
Yeah, GB is injury riddled and that makes it easier for any team, but that doesn’t mean that the 4 game winning streak of the G-men shouldn’t tell us something, ESPECIALLY if the Dallas Cowboys visits them next Sunday.
It is easy to win games, most of the times, when the opposing QB throws 3 interceptions.
Division record: 1-2
Next Game vs. Dallas Cowboys
- Dallas Cowboys BYE week
The Cowboys come off from their BYE week with an injury plagued team. LBs Sean Lee and Jason Hatcher will sit this one out and that my friends worries me. I think Bill Callahan has to step this offense up, not just by game planning, but he has to make sure that the execution of the chosen plays is well…perfect. I’ve alwas said that this team has everything they need to win games, it is time to prove it.
Division Record 3-0
Next game: @ New York Giants
