A little tidbit to keep in mind....
Dallas is the only team in the division so far that has played the Patriots. The others still have to do that, like Washington next Sunday.
So, yes, the Giants are one game behind us now, but they haven't played the big boys yet. To my mind, this is one more loss for all three of our rivals that you might as well chalk up to them right now.
Same goes for the Packers, if we want to start talking about positioning in the playoffs.
Maybe not so significant, but I mean, if we just count losses to teams who are not from the Boston area, everyone else in the East still has all of theirs, and we've got none.
