Can the Cowboys Still Win the Division?

Absolutely, though that's more of a commentary on what has unaffectionately become known as the NFC Least than Dallas' performance. The Cowboys were the only NFC East team to win Sunday, and they jumped into first place at 2-3, putting them a half-game ahead of the 1-3-1 Eagles. Washington (1-4) has lost four straight and is down its top two quarterbacks, while the Giants are 0-5 and trying to hide behind the Jets on the back pages of the New York tabloids.
