The Philadelphia Eagles continue to dominate the headlines, but that's created some value on another team in this division.

The latest: The NFC East entered Week 3 with two undefeated teams, but left with just one. The New York Giants fell to the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football, which resulted in some pretty significant odds movement.

Here are the latest NFC East odds.

Best NFC East odds

The favourite: Eagles (-400)

Philadelphia cruised to a win over Washington in Week 3 and has established itself as a legitimate Super Bowl contender.

The Eagles topped the Commanders 24-8 and quarterback Jalen Hurts once again looked very comfortable in the win. The dual-threat QB completed 22-of-35 passes for 340 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions.

Wide receiver DeVonta Smith popped off with an incredible performance, hauling in eight receptions for 169 yards and a score.

The Eagles' defence was also extremely impressive in the victory. The unit sacked Carson Wentz nine times, forcing him to fumble twice.

Philadelphia ranks fifth in scoring (28.7 points/game), while Hurts' 170 rushing yards sit second among all QBs and his three rushing TDs lead the way.

The win shortened the team's odds to win the Super Bowl in addition to their odds to win the division. The Eagles have certainly looked like the class of the NFC East through three weeks.

Other NFC East choices

Best value: Cowboys (+500)

The Cooper Rush show took over primetime television in Week 3.

With Dak Prescott sidelined due to a fractured thumb, the 28-year-old backup led America's Team to its second victory in as many weeks. The Cowboys downed the previously undefeated Giants, 23-16, on Monday Night Football.

There is a ton of value on the Cowboys to win the division at this number. Despite how impressive the Eagles have looked, Dallas only sits one game back. Additionally, Philadelphia has struggled mightily when facing its NFC East foe as of late.

The Cowboys have won three consecutive games against the Eagles by an average margin of 21.7 points. The gap between these teams is smaller than the odds indicate.

It also helps that Dallas' upcoming schedule isn't all that tough. Here's who the Cowboys play over the next several weeks:

  • Wk. 4: vs. Washington Commanders
  • Wk. 5: at Los Angeles Rams
  • Wk. 6: at Philadelphia Eagles
  • Wk. 7: vs. Detroit Lions
  • Wk. 8: vs. Chicago Bears

Given the way Rush has performed, it's not a stretch to say that Dallas should have a chance in all of these games.

The defence has been solid so far as well, ranking ninth in the NFL in yards allowed (312.3 yards/game). Additionally, Dallas sits eighth in scoring defence (17.3 points/game) while superstar linebacker Micah Parsons is tied for second in the league with 4.0 sacks.

Team to watch: Giants (+1,000)

New York's odds tumbled after its loss to Dallas.

The 2-1 Giants lost by seven points to the Cowboys on Monday, which dropped their point differential to minus-four. That's more indicative of their overall play than their record is.

To their credit, the G-Men have held opponents to just 19.7 points per game, but they've only faced the struggling Titans, the below-average Panthers team, and the backup-QB-led Cowboys.

The offence, meanwhile, has averaged a very pedestrian 18.7 points per game. Saquon Barkley exploded for 164 rushing yards (9.1 per carry) in Week 1 but has been limited to a much less dominant 153 rushing yards (4.4 per carry) in the past two games.

New head coach Brian Daboll has made the offence friendly for quarterback Daniel Jones. The 25-year-old has completed 59-of-92 passes for 560 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions.

Both wins showcased some resilience from a team that has lacked fight in previous years. The Giants trailed in the second half during both eventual victories.

Their loss to Dallas, however, was a major blow to their chances of winning the division. They'll host the Chicago Bears in Week 4.
