Technically, the Cowboys and Giants are in the same spot, but the Cowboys have a better division and conference record than the Giants, something that could become very useful down the stretch.
Before going head-to-head for the first time this season in a Sunday night showdown in Dallas on December 11, both teams have two more games to play:
The Cowboys face the 3-7 Dolphins in their annual Thanksgiving game on Thursday this week, followed by the 3-7 Cardinals the week after. Meanwhile, the Giants have to contend with the 7-3 Saints, who'll be coming off a bye week, followed by the as yet undefeated Packers.
The Cowboys have won their third straight game for the first time since 2009 and are riding a red-hot Tony Romo into the November stretch of their schedule.
With the win over Washington, Romo extended his November record to 18-2 and recorded his third straight game with a passer rating over 110. In that three-game span, Romo has a cumulative 125.4 passer rating, has thrown for eight touchdowns and has gone three straight games without an interception.
