6. Dallas Cowboys (4-3) Last week: 7

I don’t know if beating the Redskins and Eagles in consecutive weeks is anything to clap about, but the Cowboys do stand alone atop the NFC East. There is something to be said about shutting your rival down to 3 points as the Cowboys did in Philadelphia last week. A very tasty matchup at Ford Field is on tap this Sunday. I’m more interested to see if Dez Bryant will get caught with his foot in his mouth if he doesn’t outperform Calvin Johnson Sunday as he has stated they are on the “same level.”
