Eight or nine should win the NFC East this season.One thing is certain about this division at the midpoint: it’s mediocre.A big hit by a rookie linebacker in Week 2 changed everything. The defending East champion Cowboys haven’t recovered since Philadelphia’s Jordan Hicks knocked Tony Romo out with a broken collarbone on Sept. 20.Dallas (2-6) has lost six straight with Brandon Weeden and Matt Cassel under center, but none of the other teams has run away with it.Eli Manning has the New York Giants (5-4) in first place, a half-game ahead of the inconsistent Eagles (4-4). The Washington Redskins (3-5) are next.The division winner will likely be determined when the Eagles visit the Giants in Week 17.
