Dallas in charge; Philly, N.Y. battle

It's the final four weeks of the season and with three NFC East teams vying for a playoff spot each game becomes critical, especially for the Giants and Eagles, who are fighting for a wild card spot. This year a team with an 8-8 record could easily make the playoffs and it is possible (but unlikely) the NFC East will have three teams make the playoffs.

The Seahawks, Cowboys and Saints each need just one more win to clinch a playoff spot, and the winner of the Dallad-New Orleans game this weekend will have the tiebreaker advantage should those two teams have similar records, which could mean a first-round bye.
