Week 4 NFL Schedule: Dallas Cowboys Face Detroit Lions In Major Test

The Cowboys face a major test in the undefeated Lions, while the Eagles look to get back on track against the 49ers.

The Week 4 NFL schedule features a couple interesting NFC East games, but one certainly rises above all the others. Here is a list of key NFC East games:

Detroit Lions (3-0) vs. Dallas Cowboys (2-1): Yup, the Detroit Lions are 3-0. Amazed? You should be. But regardless, a game in Dallas will be a big test for the Lions, even with Tony Romo's ribs still a problem. Dallas will certainly need to play much better than they did against the Redskins if they want to win this game. For more on the Cowboys, visit Blogging the Boys and SB Nation Dallas.

San Francisco 49ers (2-1) vs. Philadelphia Eagles (1-2): This game would seem easy for the Eagles, but so did last weekend's home opener against the Giants, and that didn't turn out too well. Neither of San Francisco's wins were overly impressive, but they were wins. It'll be interesting to see how much Frank Gore plays, as he is dealing with an injury.

New York Giants (2-1) vs. Arizona Cardinals (1-2): Will there be a letdown for the Giants after the big win in Philadelphia last week? Justin Tuck is likely out, but Osi Umenyora will be in for New York. For more on the Giants, visit Big Blue View and SB Nation New York.
