It was yet another wild week in the National Football League, and I'm not just talking about the current Redskins quarterback situation. Two head coaches almost threw down postgame, the Bucs rebounded from an ugly loss last week to win a pivotal division game, and the Colts continued their impressive drive to drafting Andrew Luck. But back to the Redskins for a moment. Despite their ugly 20-13 loss to the hated Eagles, Washington should not be waving the white flag after a mid-October defeat. Let's look at the NFC East scores from Week 6:
New York Giants 27, Buffalo Bills 24: The Bills had no answer for Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw, who gained 104 yards on 26 carries, scoring a career-best three touchdowns in New York's three point win. The Giants now sit in first place in the NFC East at 4-2 overall. The Giants have a bye next week, but then face New England, San Francisco, Philadelphia, New Orleans, Green Bay and the Jets in their final 10 games.
New England Patriots 20, Dallas Cowboys 16: The Patriots were uncharacteristically sloppy Sunday afternoon, losing two fumbles and also having two Tom Brady passes picked off, but they still managed to escape with a home win over a Cowboys team that battled back from an early 13-3 deficit. The Dallas loss drops the Cowboys to 2-3 overall.
