We have passed the mid-way point of the season, and many teams are turning the page and playing their first game of the second half of the season this weekend. The 10th week of the 2011 NFL season got underway Thursday night with the Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers facing off, but NFC East action does not get underway until Sunday afternoon. Let's take a quick look at the other three games this weekend involving NFC East teams.
Dallas hosts the Buffalo Bills this Sunday at Cowboys Stadium. The game kicks off at 1:00 pm EST as Dallas. Buffalo comes into the game at 5-3 after a rough loss to the New York Jets last week while Dallas, whose record is 4-4, beat the lowly Seattle Seahawks at home. Dallas is averaging 200.5 rushing yards against in the past two games, but linebacker Sean Lee is expected to return. Both teams are fighting for a division title but with Buffalo in a three way tie for the division lead and Dallas being two games behind the New York Giants, it appears the Cowboys are in more need of a win.
Washington heads to sunny Florida to take on the Miami Dolphins at 1:00 pm EST. Quarterback John Beck will start for Washington as he looks for his first win against his former team. Both teams are in the basement of their division, although Washington has the same record as the Philadelphia Eagles. Miami, in contention for the Andrew Luck sweepstakes throughout the year, got their first win of the season last week to improve to 1-7 on the year. With a Beck versus Matt Moore quarterback matchup in addition to the two teams just not being that good, we could be in for an ugly football game.
The New York Giants have heated it up in recent weeks, winning three in a row while improving their record to 6-2. They also have a two game division lead over the Cowboys coming into the week. This week the team travels west to take on the San Francisco 49ers. San Francisco has been one of the biggest surprises this season, earning a 7-1 record halfway through the season. They have the one of the best running backs in the game in Frank Gore, and their rushing defense is the best in the league. Ahmad Bradshaw will miss his second consecutive game for the Giants, but wide receiver Hakeem Nicks may be an available target for Eli Manning after missing last week's game. The game begins at 4:15 pm EST, and can be seen in the Philadelphia area.
