Week 9 NFL Standings: Cowboys Remain In Basement

The Dallas Cowboys remain in last place in the NFC East following their dismantling at the hands of the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night. It's hardly breaking news, but we can expect the Jon Kitna led Cowboys to remain in the basement of the NFC East for the remainder of the season.

Both the Giants and the Eagles won on Sunday - with the Giants pasting the Seahawks and the Eagles coming up with an impressive win at home against the Colts. The Giants improved to 6-2 with their win and the Eagles to 5-3. The idle Washington Redskins are still in the hunt at 4-4 while the Wade Phillips coached Cowboys toil at 1-7 to bring up the rear. 

With the season being lost for Dallas, it's time to focus on the upcoming NFL Draft. It's not too soon to be thinking about draft position, and the Cowboys find themselves in great shape for the 2011 Draft. 

The Bills lost again, this time to the Chicago Bears, falling to 0-8 on the year. Buffalo is the only remaining winless team. Carolina lost on Sunday, falling to 1-7. The Lions blew a lead against the Jets, so they fell to 2-6 on the year. The Josh McDaniels led Broncos were idle this week but they sit at 2-6 as well. Cincinnati plays on Monday night against the Steelers and will likely fall to 2-6 as well. 

Dallas is in line for a top three pick in the upcoming draft. The Bills haven't looked so bad with Ryan Fitzpatrick under center either so it's feasible that Buffalo wins a pair of games this year and maybe even a trio of them.

The Cowboys will have to continue their lazy work and amazingly undisciplined and careless play if they're to jump past the Bills in the draft order.
