No team deserves to win the NFC East

Six wins will win the NFC East.

This division is so bad even the Dallas Cowboys are still in it, and they're 3-8 and won't have Tony Romo the rest of the season.

The Washington Redskins (5-6) beat the New York Giants (5-6) on Sunday to tighten the race and keep the lowly Philadelphia Eagles (4-7) only one game behind.

Neither the Redskins nor the Giants seem capable of finishing 8-8. The Eagles (4-7) are more likely to lose out than reach seven wins. The Cowboys already went 0-7 without Romo, so even one win will be an improvement.

It was only last year when the Eagles went 10-6 and missed the playoffs. The Cowboys won the division with a 12-4 record.
