NFL: New York Giants at Washington Redskins

It’s been a while since we checked in with our rivals. What’s new in the land of the NFC East? Here’s a snapshot for all three of the teams that Dallas will be fighting for the division crown between the months of September and January.

Final 2012 Record: 8-8 (3rd)

Final game failure for the second consecutive year. The Cowboys have finished 8-8 two consecutive years under Jason Garrett, who has a career head coaching record of 21-19. The team will switch to a 4-3 defense under Monte Kiffin and Rod Marinelli, and look to pick up the pace on offense in 2013
