What we can take away from NFC East Week 7

Washington Redskins vs New York Giants

The Redskins and the Giants engaged in a heck of a contest that turned into a shoot out as both teams defenses continued to show weakness.

We will get to the defense later.  First, let’s talk about these two quarterbacks.

RGIII would drive the Redskins down the field to score what he thought had to be the game winning touchdown.  Eli Manning would then get the ball and proceed to put together a touchdown run of his own to get the Giants the win.

Bovada predicted that this game was going to be a shoot out by giving this game the highest over/under of week 7.  Sure enough the game finished just under that mark at 5o points. The Giants won 27-23

RGIII and Manning throwing all over the opposing defenses is not a good sign for the Giants and Redskins defensive coordinators.  The weakest point in both these defenses was the secondary as deep passes were consistent from the first quarter all the way to the last drive put together by manning.  RGIII showed how talented he is by running over the Giants defensive line as RGIII rushed 9 times.  The largest a near 10 yard gain.

The Giants defensive line outplayed the Redskins.  The Giants got some sacks and forced a couple fumbles on the day.

Despite this pressure RGIII was phenomenal.  He was 20/28,  passing for 258 YDS and 2 TDs.

RGIII has the best odds of taking the Rookie of the Year Award as of this writing.  There is also talk that he could be a potential MVP candidate as well, despite the Redskins loss.

Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys got a much needed win against the Carolina Panthers who continue to struggle.  Tony Romo looked composed in this game and much more like a calm and cool quarterback in this game.

The Cowboys now move to 3-3 and with the way this season has been going this puts them right back in the playoff hunt.

The Cowboys cannot have another disappointing season without some big shake ups expected next season.  They are now on the track of redemption.  Week 8 is not going to be easy for the Cowboys, however, who will be going up against division rivals and current division leaders the Giants.  Sportsbooks all over the web already have the Cowboys listed as the underdogs.

The Cowboys upsetting the Giants would be huge for Dallas and put them back on the track to be the team they are suppose to be.
