For the first time all season, the Redskins, Giants and Eagles all won on the same week. To make matters worse, our Dallas Cowboys were humiliated in Green Bay – virtually removing them from the divisional race as they trail the rest of the pack by two games at 4-9.
Here is how the rest of the NFC East (read: least) improved to 6-7 in week 14.
The Giants got the most recent win of the divisional teams, defeating the Dolphins on the road Monday night. Winning 31-24, it was an encouraging sign for Giants fans to see their team finally hold onto a fourth quarter lead.
However, the defense still struggled to contain Lamar Miller and get pressure on Ryan Tannehill. The win earns them a date at home with the undefeated Panthers this week.
The Redskins won their first road game of the season, defeating the Bears 24-21. A week after losing to Cassel and the Cowboys, Washington finds themselves right back in a playoff race.
Sam Bradford and the Eagles proved a big win in Foxborough was not a fluke, as they returned home to defeat the Bills 23-20. DeMarco Murray saw just 11 carries for 34 yards.
The 6-7 Eagles will stay home for the next two games.
For the Dallas Cowboys, it’s at least one more inexcusable game with Matt Cassel followed by a road game at the Bills and a home game against Washington week 17. They trail these three teams by two games with three to play.
