Week:

It wasn't long ago that the NFC East was considered one of the powerhouse divisions in football.

Well, times have definitely changed.

So far in 2013, the division has a combined 5-14 record, and three of those wins have come in head-to-head competition. The Cowboys and Eagles are tied for first at 2-3, the first time since the AFL-NFL merger that all teams in a division are under .500 after five weeks.

Our voters (John Clayton, Ashley Fox, Dan Graziano, Jamison Hensley, Mike Sando and Kevin Seifert) deem only Dallas (No. 15), which pushed No. 1 Denver to the limit in Week 5, worthy of a spot in the top 20. The next-best NFC East team is Philadelphia at No. 21, followed by Washington at No. 27.

Wondering about the 0-5 Giants? They've fallen to 31st (they opened the season at No. 12) and have to prepare for a tough road game at No. 10 Chicago on Thursday night. Only dreadful Jacksonville is keeping the Giants, perennial playoff contenders under Tom Coughlin, from hitting rock bottom in our hierarchy.

Yeah, times have definitely changed.
