Coming off a bye week in which the Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles both notched wins, the Dallas Cowboys now reside in third place in the NFC East.

So what are the 3-4 Cowboys chances of winning the division and/or making the playoffs?

According to Five Thirty Eight’s latest projection, Dallas has a 21 percent chances of making the playoffs. Per that projection, nine other NFC teams have a better chance to make the postseason.

The site also says the Cowboys have a 14 percent chance to win the division. The Philadelphia Eagles have a 39 percent chance, while the Washington Redskins are the favorite at 47 percent.



The Redskins beat the New York Giants to claim a third-straight victory Sunday. The win brought their record to 5-2 and added to their first-place lead in the NFC East.

The Eagles are now 4-4 and control second place.

Dating back to last week, owner and general manager Jerry Jones has made notable personal decisions, including trading a first-round draft pick for wide receiver Amari Cooper. On Monday, the team fired offensive line coach Paul Alexander.

Assistant coach Marc Colombo will take Alexander’s place.

It also seems as though the front office is finished making major moves before the NFL Trade Deadline, which is at 3 p.m. on Tuesday.
