The Dallas Cowboys had complete control of the NFC East, until they didn't. An improbable comeback by the Detroit Lions sent the Cowboys home with a 31-30 loss on Sunday and a 4-4 record through eight weeks of the season.
Meanwhile, the New York Giants looked dead in the water with an 0-6 record two weeks ago, consecutive wins, including Sunday's 15-7 win over the Philadelphia Eagles, have them sitting at 2-6 and only two games out of the NFC East division lead.
To make matters even more complicated, Washington is currently beating the Denver Broncos by a touchdown in the second half. A win would help Washington keep pace in a muddled division race.
Here is an updated look at the NFC East standings after Sunday's results. Keep in mind the results of Washington's game are still up in the air, hence the asterisk.
1. Dallas Cowboys (4-4)
2. Philadelphia Eagles (3-5)
3. Washington Redskins (2-5)*
4. New York Giants (2-6)
