NFL Week 15 -- Packers at Cowboys
The fight for the playoffs continues in the Northeast quadrant of the NFC, with the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys both looking up at their respective division rivals. This means Sunday's game between the two feels almost like a playoff contest. Adding to the intrigue: questions surrounding Aaron Rodgers' return; he experienced pain in his most recent practice session, making Matt Flynn the likely starter Sunday. Which team will keep a division title in sight?

NFL Week 14 -- Cowboys at Bears
While the NFC West and NFC South might feature the conference's top contenders, the NFC East and NFC North aren't without heated divisional races. That's where these two teams come in: the 7-5 Dallas Cowboys, tied atop the East, and the 6-6 Chicago Bears, one game behind the Detroit Lions in the North. Which team will snag a critical win Monday night?
Peyton Manning remains on top in Dan Graziano's weekly MVP watch list. Manning's five-touchdown performance led the Broncos to a crucial 35-28 win over their AFC West rival Chiefs. With 41 touchdowns, Manning has a pretty good shot to break Tom Brady's single-season record of 50 TDs. Is he your choice for MVP?

Which team will win NFC East?
Neither team had it easy, but both got the job done. On Thursday, the Dallas Cowboys erased an early two-touchdown hole against the Oakland Raiders to (temporarily) take the outright lead in the NFC East. Three days later, the Philadelphia Eagles held off a late charge by the Arizona Cardinals to win 24-21 and resume their tie atop the division. New York and Washington are still mathematically alive, but it appears the Eagles or Cowboys will take the crown. Which will it be?
No changes to Cowboys' staff
The Cowboys enter their bye week with a disappointing 5-5 record and are coming off a blowout loss to the Saints. But don't expect any changes to the coaching staff, says team owner and general manager Jerry Jones. Would a staff shake-up actually help Dallas? Who is to blame for the 5-5 record? Which team is your pick to win the NFC East?
