My friends at ESPN Stats & Analysis have come up with some intriguing information regarding the remaining schedules in the NFC East. The Giants are set to face the toughest schedule in the league in the second half. And the Eagles and Cowboys don't have it much easier.

The Redskins, on the other hand, have the 18th toughest schedule remaining. Their opponents are under .500 and the best news is that they've already completed their NFC East road games.

Here's a breakdown of the division, and where we stand looking forward:
