ESPN Power Rankings: Dallas Cowboys Climb After Blowout Victory

The Dallas Cowboys have moved up from No. 21 in last weeks' Power Rankings toNo. 18 this week after their 34-7 victory over the St. Louis Rams.

The Cowboys used Demarco Murray's 256 yards rushing as fuel to beat the winless Rams and move the Cowboys to within striking distance of the NFC-East leading New York Giants. The Cowboys are just one game behind the Giants at 3-3 and just one game ahead of the Philadelphia Eagles at 2-4. The NFC East is up-for-grabs at this point and the Cowboys are right in the mix.

The Giants come in at No. 11 on this weeks rankings with the Washington Redskins at No. 20, and the Eagles at No. 22 to round out the NFL East. The Cowboys take on the Eagles on Sunday night in a game that will be crucial in determining how the NFC East plays out the rest of the season.
