At the moment, Philadelphia is currently in first place in the NFC East. However if the Dallas Cowboys defeat the Los Angeles Rams (8-5) on Sunday afternoon at home, Dallas will go back into the first place in the NFC East.
The Philadelphia Eagles (7-7) will host the Cowboys (6-7) next Sunday. As long as Dallas wins this Sunday, they will win the NFC East with another win next Sunday over Philadelphia.
The Washington Redskins (3-11) will host the New York Giants (3-11) next Sunday. Washington, New York, and Miami all have a 3-13 record. Despite the New York Giants defeating the Miami Dolphins 36-20 on Sunday afternoon at home, New York still owns the number two pick in the NFL Draft while the Cincinnati Bengals (1-13) still own the number one pick after losing 34-13 at home on Sunday afternoon against the New England Patriots.
