New York Giants (5-7)

The Giants are only one game out of first place in the NFC East, as the Washington Redskins (6-7) and Philadelphia Eagles (6-7) continue to have people asking if anyone wants to win that division this season.

This article from NFL.com covered it best:

In the past two weeks, the New York Giants and Washington Redskins each had a chance to grab a stranglehold of the division. Both choked.

The RedskinsGiants and Philadelphia Eagles each sit at 5-7. TheDallas Cowboys cling to playoff life at 4-8 after beating Washington 19-16 on Monday night.

The Giants have lost three straight. The Eagles pulled off a miraculous win in Foxboro after giving up a combined 110 points in their own three-game losing streak. The Redskins just lost to the Cowboys at home. Dallas is starting Matt Cassel the rest of the season.

This is an atrocious division.

Miami Dolphins (5-7)

Miami is anchoring last place in the AFC East, and there is little chance for them to reach the postseason with the New England Patriots (11-2) and New York Jets (8-5) steaming full-speed ahead in December.  They'll play for pride tonight in front of their fans and could spoil the Giants' effort at claiming the NFC East title.

Here is the comparison from NFL.com:

That's your preview for tonight's game.  The comments section is open, and the usual rules apply.
