At the quarter-pole of the NFL season the New York Giants are 3-1 and tied with the Washington Redskins for first place in the NFC East. Both the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys imploded Sunday, and even though the Redskins won it does not seem like happiness is radiating from the nation's capital.
Here are some quick SB Nation links to stories about all of the Giants' NFC East rivals.
Philadelphia Eagles (1-3)
Philadelphia fans have endured a whirlwind of emotion over the past few weeks. Has panic set in?
This one has to go down as one of the worst regular season losses in the Andy Reid era.
As if the way the Eagles have played wasn't bad enough, here's some bad news to heap on the pile.
Dallas Cowboys (2-2)
NOTE: The Dallas links below are OK. In truth -- and I know this is gloating just a bit, or maybe a lot -- but the most enjoyable things about BTB today is all the photos of Cowboy players face down on the turf looking ashamed of themselves.
Jim Schwartz took a little dig at Rob Ryan's comments last week regarding Calvin Johnson and his standing in relation to Miles Austin and Dez Bryant. Schwartz was set up in his postgame for a one-liner and delivered.
The Dallas Cowboys blew a big lead for the second time this season. Is early success in a game too much for them to handle?
How the Cowboys respond to adversity will determine the rest of the season.
Washington Redskins (3-1)
It looks like we finally have what we have been searching for in Mike Shanahan and Bruce Allen. We finally have a team with a long term plan, one that is both infused by youth and on a bright trajectory in regards to the future. So what I don't understand is, why all the discontent.
Rex Grossman had an up and down day against the Rams on Sunday, but when the dust settled he had done just enough to earn a Redskins victory; a win that was nearly lost moments earlier with a crucial interception that gave the Rams an opportunity to tie the game. Luckily, they couldn't capitalize and the Redskins escaped with a 17-10 win. Rex Grossman knows that he can't make those kinds of mistakes if the Redskins are going to continue to be successful, according to the D.C. Sports Bog.
