It was bound to happen but this weeks NFC East watch finally see the Giants lose another game. How did the rest of the division fare, let’s take a whistle stop tour of the best division in football.
NFC East Watch: Eagles pride of Pennsylvania
The Eagles continued to roll under Nick Sirianni pounding on the hapless Steelers to the tune of a 35-13 win. AJ Brown has transformed Jalen hurts from a decent QB into a potential MVP hauling in another 6 catches for 156 yards and 3 touchdowns.
The Eagles have started to cook on offence a little more of late and that will be a concern for the rest of the league as they stay perfect at 7-0
NFC East Watch: Giants drop painful one to Seahawks
It had to end some time but did it really have to be to Geno Smith. After taking down Aaron Rodgers and Lamar Jackson it seems to bizarre for it to be Geno.
In truth this was more about the Giants missing three offensive lineman and Daniel Jones running for his life. Jones isn’t the sort of QB who can put a team on his back and haul them to a win, and it really showed in this game. And the two muffed punts really were disastrous.
The Giants will regroup, but unless the OL starts to improve it could be a long season from 6-2.
NFC East Watch: Cowboys lay 49 points on Bears
The Bears have been bad this year and the Cowboys used them as a way to sharpen their offence. Scoring almost at will on them with 14-points in each of the first three quarters.
Dak Prescott looked back to his best, but that’s as much about how horrible the Bears were. Even without Ezekiel Elliott the Cowboys had it easy with Pollard amassing 131 yards and 3 touchdowns.
The Cowboys look to be heating up as they move to 6-2.
NFC East Watch: Commanders take down Colts
The Colts have already folded on their season, even through they are now 3-4. With Sam Ehlinger at QB the Colts really only had Jonathan Taylor to lean on and he was injured and could only manage 76-yards on 16-carries.
Ehlinger wasn’t bad, he just couldn’t do enough against a decent Commanders defence. Despite leading with under 5 minutes to go, and having the ball, the Colts couldn’t close out the game.
It’s a testament to just how bad Washington are that they nearly lost this game. Their defence is keeping them in games but it’s a miracle they are now 4-4.
