If you're a Washington Redskins fan harboring any hopes of the team winning the NFC East this season, yesterday's NFL games did not bring much good news. At 4-4 and with two division wins already, the Redskins entered their bye week in relatively decent shape.
That's not necessarily the case anymore. There is still a lot of football to be played, but the Redskins are now very clearly in third place in the division. The New York Giants routed the Seattle Seahawks to move to 6-2, while the Philadelphia Eagles took care of the Indianapolis Colts to move to 5-3, a full game ahead of the 4-4 Redskins. Here are the full NFC East standings.
- New York Giants: 6-2
- Philadelphia Eagles: 5-3
- Washington Redskins: 4-4
- Dallas Cowboys: 1-7
