Good news? Cowboys tied for lead

October, 7, 2013
ARLINGTON, Texas -- First, the good news for Dallas Cowboys fans still shaken up over their team’s 51-48 loss to the Denver Broncos: The Cowboys are still in first place in the NFC East.

The bad news is they are 2-3 and tied with the Philadelphia Eagles.

The worst news: The Eagles’ two division wins have come on the road against the Washington Redskins and New York Giants.

The Cowboys have yet to play a division game on the road.

They will play their second NFC East game of the season this Sunday when the Redskins visit AT&T Stadium. Robert Griffin III had four touchdown passes in Arlington last year on Thanksgiving in Washington’s 38-31 win.

The Cowboys actually have back-to-back division games with an Oct. 20 game at Philadelphia looming.

“I think it’s too early to look at all that stuff,” quarterback Tony Romo said. “More than anything you’re just trying to play good and keep getting better. This early in the year you want to keep getting better and win football games and let all that other stuff play out at the end. We’re in this position where we need to go win this week.”
