The Dallas Cowboys have moved up three spots according to NFL.com's recent Power Rankings after their victory over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. They've moved up from No. 20 in last weeks' rankings to No. 17 this week.
The Cowboys (4-4) are currently two games behind the division-leading New York Giants (6-2) in the NFC East. The Giants have a considerably tougher schedule over the next four weeks as they take on the San Francisco 49er's, Philadelphia Eagles, New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers. While the Cowboys take on the Buffalo Bills, Washington Redskins, Miami Dolphins and Arizona Cardinals. The Cowboys have a good shot at making up ground over these next four games. That would lead to a division-clinching showdown with the Giants as they play twice in the last four weeks of the season in what will most likely determine the NFC East champion this season.
The rest of the Power Rankings for the NFC East has the New York Giants at No. 4, the Philadelphia Eagles at No. 15, and the Washington Redskins at No. 25.
