NFC East Roundup: Week 3

When we lose you get opponents cheerleaders!
When we lose you get opponents cheerleaders!

Dallas Cowboys

After squeaking out a win in the home opener the Boys will welcome the Detroit Lions into town this Sunday. The Lions are red hot with a 3-0 and most recently a comeback win against the Vikings. Tony Romo was able to dodge a number of Redskins hits on Monday, but will he have the same success against, arugably, the league's best lineman in Ndamukong Suh who has already registered two sacks and nine tackles this year. Also, the Cowboys secondary continues to be banged up and who will be able to cover Megatron? The Lions lost to the Cowboys 35-19 last year, despite being up a halftime. This year I think the Lions are coming in hungry and will even up the Cowboys record at 2-2.

New York Giants

The Giants got their first division win on Sunday with a physical match up against the Eagles. The G-men will travel to Arizona this weekend for a matchup with the struggling 1-2 Cardinals. Mario Manningham will be back for the Giants, but so will Beanie Wells for the Cards. It seems like the key to this game will be the Giants banged up secondary limiting Kevin Kolb and Larry Fitzgerald. Can the Giants ride some positive momentum and win in Arizona? I think so. After visiting the desert the Giants have three consecutive home games against the Seahawks, Dolphins, and Bills. So we could be looking at a rejuvenated 6-1 squad in about four weeks.

Philadelphia Eagles

Of course the main story is the Eagles QB Michael Vick getting another concussion broken hand errr...bruised hand. It looks like Vick will likely play this week against the San Francisco Youngstown 49ers, who are coming off a win in Cincinnati. Vick should get his fair share of hits against the Niners and Patrick Willis, remember this is the same team that gave Tony Romo his broken ribs. All in all the Eagles shouldn't have much trouble with the 49ers and their terrible offense, maybe this will present an opportunity to rest and protect Vick.
