The first-place Dallas Cowboys move up again this week in the latest ESPN Power Rankings as they come in at No. 8 this week, one spot above where they sat a week ago. The Cowboys used a 20-19 victory over the Miami Dolphins on Thanksgiving day to move to 7-4 on the season and they currently hold a one-game lead over the New York Giants in the NFC East division.
The Cowboys travel to Arizona to take on the Cardinals this week while the New York Giants have to deal with the undefeated, defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers this week. That sets up a showdown between these two teams on December 11th for Sunday Night Football at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas.
The Giants come in at No. 14 in this weeks' power rankings, while the Eagles sit at No. 18 and the Redskins sit at No. 23 to round out the rest of the NFC East.
