2011 NFL Standings: Dallas Cowboys Sit in 3rd Place in NFC East

The Dallas Cowboys take on the New England Patriots Sunday at 4:15 ET in New England.

The Dallas Cowboys (2-2) coming off their bye week sit in 3rd place in the NFC East behind the Washington Redskins (3-1) and New York Giants(3-2). The Philadelphia Eagles(1-4) currently sit in last place in the division.

The Cowboys have a huge match up with the New England Patriots(4-1) this weekend as they look to get over .500 and climb into the NFC East divisional race.

The Cowboys' opponents thus far this season are a combined 14-5 through week five. New York (2-3), San Francisco (4-1), Washington (3-1) and Detroit (5-0) have made for a pretty tough schedule so far for the Cowboys.

The division-leading Washington Redskins take on the Philadelphia Eagles this weekend in a crucial NFC East match up that will either kick Philadelphia down to a miserable 1-5 start, or close the gap between the Redskins and the rest of the division.

The New York Giants take on the surprising Buffalo Bills (4-1) on Sunday.
