NFC East

Giant fans probably spent most of the day rooting for the Jets and the Falcons in their games against the Eagles and Cowboys, respectively. One result was favorable, the other not so much.

The Friday after Thanksgiving is always a laid-back day with very little excitement. This year, there is no excitement in the land of the Giants. They are officially out of the play off picture at 3-8 and are headed into NFL obscurity in a season where most teams are talking about how they can still grab a playoff spot.

The Giants will be practicing today in preparation for their trip to Jacksonville. They will head down to Florida tomorrow to play perhaps one of the NFL's most meaningless games of the year. FOX is only televising the game in the Jacksonville and New York markets, with former Giant David Diehl providing color commentary alongside a play-by-play man that I'm sure most Giant fans have never heard of, Justin Kutcher.

Things tightened up a bit in the NFC East in Week 8 as the Redskins shocked the Cowboys in overtime and the Eagles got stung by a long TD late in their game vs the Cardinals in Arizona. The Giants, who were are on a bye, both gained and lost ground at the same time.

The NFC East is gaining a lot of respect these days, something few would have thunk at the beginning of the season. The 16 wins by the four teams are the most of any division in the league through seven weeks. The division has become a two-team race between Dallas and Philadelphia with the Giants and Washington fighting for a distant third.

The best-case scenario for the Giants in Week Six was to exit Philadephia with a victory and have the Cowboys fall flat in Seattle. That would have created a three-way tie between the teams for the division lead at 4-2.?But, as fate would have it, the Giants were the ones who fell flat, while the Eagles and Cowboys both advanced to 5-1.

With a win Sunday night in Philadelphia and a Dallas loss in Seattle, the Giants can improve to 4-2 and move into a three-way tie with the Eagles and Cowboys for first place in the NFC East.

This will be the Giants' third nationally-televised game of 2014 - all road games. They lost the opener to Detroit 35-14 on Monday Night Football and defeated the Redskins 45-14 on Thursday night in Week 4.

The NFC East ain't so bad after all. Through five weeks, the division has an overall 12-8 record, thanks to a 6-1 non-conference record vs the AFC South. In addition, the four teams only have played two divisional games thus far, so the bulk of the divisional schedule lies ahead. One of those games will transpire this Sunday night when the Giants travel to Philadelphia.

The Giants began this season by dropping the first two games and not looking very good in the process. But, as fate would have it, the Giants are never as bad as they appear under Tom Coughlin, who never stops striving to improve his team's play. They've won the next two games and looked very good doing it.

"We?re trying like heck to be the best we can be," said Coughlin. "We?re trying to improve on a weekly basis. We?re trying to do the things we didn?t do in the beginning. We?ve had some takeaways, we?ve had pretty good control of the ball, with the exception of the one the other day. We?ve done some things that worked together as a team, so I?m hoping that continues."

After four weeks, the Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys sit atop the NFC East at 3-1. The Giants are third at 2-2 and the Washington Redskins are last at 1-3.

Last Thursday, the Giants routed the Redskins in Washington, 45-14 for their second straight victory.

Week One of the 2014 NFL season concludes tonight with the Giants facing off against the the Lions at Ford Field in Detroit (and a later game of Chargers/Cardinals). The prognosticators are giving the Giants little chance of winning the game. Some are predicting a blowout. No one believes the Giants can win. Except, maybe, the Giants.

In the NFC East yesterday, the Philadelphia Eagles made a second-half comeback and a statement down in Jacksonville. ?They scored 34 unanswered points after going down by 17 in the first half. RB Darren Sproles has added a new dimension to Chip Kelly's offense that makes them virtually unstoppable over a 60-minute period.

Dallas could not overcome multiple turnovers and mistakes at home vs the 49ers, losing 28-17. The positives that Cowboy fans can take away from this game was that the defense did not look as bad as advertised. The negatives are obviously the turnovers by the offense that led to points.

Two weeks from today, the Giants will report for training camp. Until then, you can wait it out with us in the air conditioning. It's going to be a hot week here in the NYC area.

What's going on in the NFC East these days? Funny you should ask...

Dallas: The Cowboys would like move WR Dez Bryant around this season. MLB Rolando McClain was signed after Sean Lee was placed on season-ending IR. Justin Durant and Kyle Wilbur are likely starters at LB when camp opens. Holdout QB Kyle Orton is expected to show as well.

At one point, the NFC East was faced with having an 8-8 or less team as division champs. The Philadelphia Eagles took care of that by winning seven of their last eight games to finish at 10-6, winning the NFC East after finishing 4-12 in 2012.

Philadelphia topped the Cowboys in Dallas Sunday night, 24-22, in a "win and you're in" game. They will host the New Orleans Saints in the Wild Card round Saturday night.

The Cowboys' season-ending loss to the Eagles was a bitter pill for owner Jerry Jones, who said again last night that Jason Garrett would be his head coach in 2014. From Rotoworld:

The Eagles sit all lone atop the division after Dallas got left out int he cold last night in Chicago. Philly holds a one-game lead over the Boys with three to go. They face each other in Week 17 down in Big D, so all Dallas has to do is stay one game back until then.

The next two weeks will be the season for the Cowboys: home vs Green Bay and away at Washington. No need to go into what those teams have been experiencing, but Dallas should win both.

The Eagles have been red-hot behind QB Nick Foles, who is 6-1 as a starter. He has 20 TD passes to only one INT this season, completing nearly 62% of his passes in the process. LeSean McCoy leads the NFL in rushing despite getting locked down twice by the Giants.?Philly plays at Minnesota this week and then will play host to the Bears in Week 16.

?We won?t have too much trouble scoring touchdowns against one of the worst defenses in the league,? the Giants? offense must have thought to itself, heading into Sunday?s contest.

Unfortunately that wasn?t the case, as settling for field goals on two early trips into the red zone ultimately sealed Big Blue?s fate in a 24-21 loss to the Cowboys.

Sure, the weather was a factor in this one, but Tony Romo didn?t look like he had too much trouble throwing the ball on that final drive. It?s no excuse.

Each week, I will be taking a look at the Giants? media notes to pull out some interesting facts about the upcoming opponent.

In Week 12, the Giants (4-6) host the Dallas Cowboys (5-5) in a game that has huge implications for both squads.

The Cowboys won the Week 1 matchup 36-31 in Dallas, so the Giants would need this win to even the head-to-head matchups in case that factors into a playoff tiebreaker.

It wasn't that long ago the Philadelphia Eagles with their new coach and QB roulette were being written off by pundits and fans alike. Today, they are the favorites to win the NFC East.

According to the website PredictionMachine.com, the Eagles (6-5) are on track to win 8.8 games and capture the once-heralded, currently-dysfunctional division. PM predicts the Cowboys (5-5) will finish second with 7.5 wins and the Giants third with 6.7.

With six games remaining, here's how the NFC East stands...

The Eagles staved off a late run by RGIII and the Redskins to take sole possession of first place. They will get a bye in Week 12. Washington, feeling the wrath of having a drawn a first-place schedule, host San Francisco next Monday night.

The Cowboys were off yesterday, a much-needed bye to say the least. They play the Giants at MetLife this coming Sunday. A Cowboys win moves them into a first-place tie with Philadelphia. A Giants win drops Dallas into a second place tie with New York.

Was it perfect? No.

But the Giants found a way to win their fourth straight game in a 27-13 contest over the Packers, and unlike some of the recent wins, there were at least a good chunk of positives to take away from Big Blue?s offensive performance.

Victor Cruz was again at the top of his game, catching eight passes for 110 yards. Everyone else was efficient enough in helping the Giants get the win.

The Giants have won three in a row and are suddenly right smack in the middle of the NFC East fray. That's not saying much considering the state of the NFC East these days, but it's all we've got right now so we'll take it.

Sunday's win, paired with the losses by Dallas and Washington and the Eagles' victory, have landed the Giants just 1 1/2 games off the division lead.

The Giants face the Packers next week at MetLife. Green Bay will still be without Aaron Rodgers, but third stringer Scott Tolzien, who tossed for 280 yards in a loss vs Philly yesterday after Seneca Wallace left the game with a groin injury, will be get the start for the Pack.

Even with four teams in the NFC having off this past week, there was still some outcomes that affected my rankings. Seattle was able to turnaround a disastrous start against Tampa Bay and inch out a victory in overtime against the still winless Buccaneers; keeping them at the top spot in the NFC. The Saints however, were not so lucky as they suffered a stunning loss to the New York Jets on the road and showed that Drew Brees is indeed human. More importantly, the Green Bay Packers were without their star QB Aaron Rodgers for a majority of their Monday night loss against the Chicago Bears and will lose Rodgers for several weeks with a broken collarbone; shaking up the rankings even more. Here are my NFC Power Rankings for week 9...

?1. Seattle Seahawks?(8-1):?The Seahawks have been cutting it close when it comes down to these games. Each week they have been on the brink of defeat, and this week was no different. Down 21 points to the winless Buccaneers, all signs pointed to Seattle facing their first defeat at home since 2011. But the Seahawks and QB Russell Wilson were able to muster up a stunning comeback and leave CenturyLink Stadium with an overtime victory, keeping their streak at home alive. This team has shown tremendous resilience when they needed it the most. RB Marshawn Lynch had?his way with the Tampa Bay defense, carrying the ball 21 times for 121 yards. Should?Seattle be worried? I don't think so.?The way the Seahawks have strung together this steak is amazing and?when their backs have been up against the wall, even?against teams like the Rams and Buccaneers, they have found a way to walk away with a victory. This team is STILL the cream of the crop in the NFC.?Ranking last week: 1

It's back to work for the Giants this morning as the team hits the practice field after a week off. While they were away, their rivals in the NFC East played. And play they did....

The Dallas Cowboys eked out a win vs the Minnesota Vikings at Jerry World yesterday, coming from behind late in the 4th quarter to win 27-23.

The Washington Redskins defeated the San Diego Chargers, 30-24, in overtime at FedEx Field.

Three of the four NFC East teams will be in action this afternoon (the Giants have a bye). The Cowboys, Redskins and Eagles are all playing poor defense and will need to tighten things up if they have any designs of winning the division.

Dallas is dead last in the league in total defense. Philly (31st) and Washington (29th) are right down there with them. The Giants are 18th in the NFL in overall defense.

At 1pm, Dallas (4-4) will host the 1-6 Minnesota Vikings as the 2-5 Redskins entertain the 4-3 San Diego Chargers at FedFex Field.

The Giants defeated the Eagles, 15-7, in Philadelphia yesterday, picking up a game on them and the rest of their NFC East opponents. Dallas lost in the last seconds in Detroit, 31-30, and the Redskins - after taking a 21-7 lead over the Broncos in Denver - got overtaken by a second half surge and were crushed, 45-21.

The Giants are only two games behind with eight to go. They will take their bye next week. The Cowboys will host the Vikings; the Eagles are in Oakland and Washington is home vs the Chargers.

Last season, the Giants were the defending Super Bowl champions and the Redskins were riding a red-hot RGIII to a division title. This year, the other two teams - Dallas and Philadelphia - are positioning themselves to battle for the NFC East title.

The Eagles gained 425 total yards in today?s 31-20 win at Tampa Bay. The Eagles are one of four teams in NFL history to gain at least 400 yards in each of its first six games joining this season?s Denver Broncos, the 2007 New England Patriots and the 1983 San Diego Chargers. This is the first time in NFL history in which two teams have accomplished the feat in the same season.

Finally, the Giants played a relevant fourth quarter. But even though it was a close game right down the wire, the outcome remained the same for the Giants as they fall to an unthinkable 0-6 with a 27-21 loss to the Chicago Bears.

Sure, Eli Manning?s two interceptions early were brutal, ugly and right on par with how he has been playing all season. He was picked off on two of his first five passes.

But Manning rebounded nicely to put the Giants in a position to orchestrate a game-winning drive.

We thought this season couldn?t get any worse for the 0-4 New York Football Giants. But I guess they still found a way to surprise us.

Big Blue dropped to 0-5 Sunday with a 36-21 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, but the worst thing about this game was the Giants were actually alive for most of the way and totally blew it late.

However, three Eli Manning interceptions in the fourth quarter sealed the Giants? losing fate. He continued to add to his league-lead in interceptions with now 12.

The Giants hope to get into the win column Sunday at 1 p.m. when they host the Philadelphia Eagles, who have dropped three straight games after an opening week win.

The Giants pounded the Eagles 42-7 in Week 17 last season, but that game had no real meaning for either side. However, Sunday?s game has huge implications for two teams desperately trying to stay alive in a weak NFC East.

From Andy Furman of Ultimate NYG:

The NY Giants offense did not have Chase Blackburn in their huddle this week. But unfortunately, they had Cordle, Brewer and Pugh in there instead. The result was the same, another loss. The score in this contest is somewhat misleading, as the Giants were much more competitive.

Through almost 3 quarters of play, this game was essentially deadlocked, as the Chiefs made a long FG at the end of H1 and the Giants missed one. And then the floodgates opened. A special teams 89 yard punt return put KC up by 2 scores; recovering from that deficit was tantamount to climbing Mt. Everest. The Giants defense crumbled in Q4 as a result of the time of possession advantage of KC and the rout was on. New York is 0-4 and staring at a very long season.

Could today be the day we hear something on our two unsigned rookies? Hopefully, but it won't be the end of the world if we don't. Justin Pugh told me at minicamp he didn't see any reason why his contract wouldn't be done by camp. Well, camp's almost here and things remain status quo...As for Ryan Nassib, we haven't heard much about his situation, but it's expected we'll know what his contract issues are by the end of this week.

The Denver Broncos are scheduled to play the Giants at MetLife in Week Two and could possibly be without top pass rusher LB Von Miller for the contest. Miller was suspended by the league yesterday for the first four games for violating the league's drug policy. Miller is appealing the ban stating, "I did nothing wrong." Even if he wins his appeal, sources believe the reduction will only be for two games.

The difference between being the best and the worst team in the NFC East these days is razor thin. I decided to make a list of players each team could least afford to lose, some obvious, some not. A change of tone today. I'm writing from the fan point of view.

Philadelphia: RB LeSean McCoy. If there's one thing us Giant fans know about the Eagles is that we can't beat them. The biggest reason for that is because McCoy runs wild against us. In his eight career games vs the Giants, Shady has averaged 5.5 YPC. With no set plans at QB under new coach Chip Kelly, the running game is going have to carry the offense until either Michael Vick can re-establish himself or Matt Barkley shows he's ready.

To all you Kevin Gilbride bashers out there: read this from our colleague Jimmy Kempski....

In doing research for a separate project, I happened to notice how the Giants are consistently in the Top 10 in scoring every year. I knew they put up a lot of points, but hadn?t realized that they haven?t had a single down year in the last half decade, in terms of their ability to put points on the board. And so, I thought I?d take a look around the rest of the NFC East to see how everyone else compared:

Finally, the sun is out in full force this morning. Today is Memorial Day, and please don't forget to stop and reflect on all of the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for this great country.

I personally will be visiting my 83 year-old father, a Korean War veteran. The Korean War is widely considered the "forgotten" war (a police action), but it was as intense as any war this country has ever participated in. Over 33K Americans were killed in the war, which was used as the backdrop of CBS' iconic serio-comedy M*A*S*H, a show that captivated TV audiences for eleven seasons in the 1970's and 80's.

Myself and Jimmy Kempski of Blogging the bEast kick around some of the changes and discuss some new faces coming into the NFC East this season...

Dallas Cowboys

Jimmy:?They did nothing in terms of outside free agents. The only guy that may see the field at all would be Justin Durant, who may start at SLB, but will be the first guy off the field in most sub-packages. There?s a sense that a bunch of their draft picks will see action right away. I don?t see it that way. Their first-round pick Travis Frederick should start at C from Day One, but aside from him, I?m not seeing how any of their other picks are going to have immediate impact roles as rookies.

The NFC East is not making many headlines this offseason. The Redskins and Cowboys cannot really splurge thanks to the cap sanctions the league imposed on them by the league.

The Eagles, as usual, made some shrewd moves in acquiring LB Connor Barwin, TE James Casey, CBs Cary Williams and Bradley Fletcher and safeties Kenny Phillips and Patrick Chung.

The Giants have brought in WR Louis Murphy, TE Brandon Myers, LB Dan Connor, DT Cullen Jenkins, CB Aaron Ross, S Ryan Mundy and K Josh Brown.

From Jimmy Kempski......

The Giants, like the Redskins and Cowboys, didn?t have much room to work with under the salary cap, so they were limited in what they could do in free agency, but here?s a roundup of the roster moves they made, with analysis.

? The Giants were able to get a deal done with LT Will Beatty before he hit free agency. 5 year, $38.75 million, $19 million guaranteed. The Giants?had to?get this done, and they did. That was their #1 priority of the offseason, and they were able to retain Beatty before he could hit the market (although the market for OTs turned out to be less lucrative than normal). Still, good work.

The Eagles have signed safety Kenny Phillips to a one-year deal, the team announced.

The latest dope form the cap-strapped NFC East as only our colleague Jimmy Kempski of Blogging the bEast can tell it....

The Giants signed kicker Josh Brown, ending Lawrence Tynes? run with the Giants. He got two rings out of it, so good for him. Don?t be surprised if the Giants continue to address the kicker position in the draft. The guy that I would keep an eye on is Caleb Sturgis of Florida, who was absolutely murdering the ball at the East-West Shrine Game practices.

The Giants hosted Jasper Brinkley, but he left to go visit the Cardinals. I can?t say that I know anything about Brinkley?s game, but the overwhelming theme in reading up on him quickly is that he wouldn?t be much of an upgrade over Chase Blackburn, a player who shouldn?t have been starting in the NFL in the first place.

The Andy Reid era is over in Philadelphia after a decade and a half. The Eagles are pushing the restart button and hired Chip Kelly, the highly-successful, offensive-minded head coach from the University of Oregon to take over the reins.

The Eagles have been going through the exercise of cutting salaries for the past month. Currently, according to spotrac.com, they have a cap number of approximately $101 million thus far, which is around $20 million or so under the cap.

That is not an official number, btw. ?The cap limits have not been released as of yet (reported to be $122 million), and more moves are coming, so don't hold us to the penny on these. ?They do have money to spend, just put it that way. From Rueben Frank of CSNPhilly:

According to Sheil Kapadia of PhillyMag.com, LeSean McCoy?should have been a Cowboy.
