It's Week 11 in the NFL and the NFC East is still anyone's game. After a 27-24 overtime win over the Washington Redskins and a 17-14 New York Giants loss to the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday night, the Dallas Cowboys are now tied for the division lead.

The Giants were previously 6-3 and a game up on the Cowboys in the standings on Sunday, but were unable to beat the weakened Eagles and fell short of an opportunity to extend their division lead. The Cowboys and the Giants still haven't played yet this season, so there is plenty of opportunity for shifting atop the division and nothing has been settled yet.

The Redskins are now bringing up the tail of the division at 3-7 after their loss to the Cowboys. They stand one game behind the 4-6 Eagles in the win column, though the Eagles hold a 1-0 tie-breaker at this point. Philadelphia has beaten both Dallas and Washington once and split with the Giants. The Giants lost to the Redskins once and split with the Eagles. The Cowboys swept the Redskins by five total points and lost to the Eagles in their one contest.
