Another exciting week of the NFC East has come and gone. Two NFC East teams won this week and two did not. It’s beginning to come down to what teams are actually good enough to make the playoffs, but right now, the Eagles are the for sure team to take the division.
How did the NFC East do this week? They did alright for the most part.
Dallas Cowboys: Lost to the Packers
The Cowboys matched up with the Packers touchdown for a touchdown leading to an overtime showdown that came down to better coaching. The Packers sealed their victory and ended their five-game losing streak with a field goal, 31-28. The Cowboys had just come back from their bye week. The Cowboys face the Minnesota Vikings next.
Washington Commanders: Took down the undefeated team
The Commanders were the ones to finally take down the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles in a primetime Monday night football game. The Eagles faced tough penalties and lost touch of some of the things they’ve done well this season, including winning the turnover battle. The Commanders are working to turn their season around and try to get into the playoff race. The Commanders face the Houston Texans next.
New York Giants: Beat the Texans, too
The New York Giants being unstoppable this year also beat the Houston Texans, 24-16. Davis Mills was spot on with over 300 passing yards. Dameon Pierce had 17 carries for 94 yards. The Giants are holding onto second place following the Dallas loss to Green Bay, so they’ll look to continue this hot streak when they face the Detroit Lions.
Philadelphia Eagles: Lost more than just the game
The Eagles lost in primetime on Monday night, but they also lost tight end Dallas Goedert to a shoulder injury after a missed face mask incident. The Eagles will play against the Indianapolis Colts next week and look to bounce back from the 32-21 loss.
