The View Back East: ‘Dream Team’ Continues To Struggle

The NFC East got shook up this week. The Cowboys blew a 20-3 lead at half-time to lose 34-30. The Eagles blew a 20-3 lead at half-time to lose 24-23. The Redskins continued their resurgence and dominated the Rams in a 17-10 victory and the Giants overcame a 27-17 deficit with 5:16 to play to win 31-27. This division is still up for grabs, but the Giants and Redskins have taken control of the division early on.
