With the Washington Redskins defeat of the New York Giants, it has pushed the 8-6 Dallas Cowboys into sole possession of first place in the NFC East division. The Giants loss hasn't totally knocked them out of the playoffs, but they now depend on lots of help and will need to win out. The Philadelphia Eagles hold at third place, but there's still a chance the Redskins can over take them and get out of the cellar.
