• I did a long-form Q&A with my buddy Keith McMillan, who is now writing for The Insider at The Washington Post. Well deserved. Anyway, the Q&A got like 80 comments in the first hour. If you’re a Cowboys fan, just skip it.
• Jay Ratliff won’t play tonight. Jason Witten is doubtful. Those are two enormous losses for the Cowboys, assuming Witten won’t play. Here’s the rest of the injury report:
|DT Jay Ratliff, ankle, OUT||CB Prince Amukamara, ankle, OUT|
|S Matt Johnson, hammy, OUT||DT Marvin Austin, back, OUT|
|TE Jason Witten, spleen, DOUBTFUL||S Tyler Sash, suspended, OUT|

• Pete Prisco of CBS did his All NFC East team. I mostly agree with his picks, although I’m not sure how David Baas made his list. If you’re a regular follower of my site, you already know my feelings on most of these players below (hence, no quick blurb on each player), so in the interest of avoiding redundancy we’ll leave the blurbs out, but we can certainly discuss them further in the comment section:
|QB: Eli Manning, Giants||DE: Jason Pierre-Paul, Giants|
|RB: LeSean McCoy, Eagles||DT: Jay Ratliff, Cowboys|
|WR: Hakeem Nicks, Giants||DT: Linval Joseph, Giants|
|WR: Victor Cruz, Giants||DE: Trent Cole, Eagles|
|TE: Jason Witten, Cowboys||OLB: DeMarcus Ware, Cowboys|
|TE: Fred Davis, Redskins||MLB: Sean Lee, Cowboys|
|LT: Trent Williams, Redskins||OLB: Brian Orakpo, Redskins|
|LG: Evan Mathis, Eagles||CB: Corey Webster, Giants|
|C: Jason Kelce, Eagles||S: Kenny Phillips, Giants|
|RG: Chris Snee, Giants||S: Nate Allen, Eagles|
|RT: Todd Herremans, Eagles||CB: Brandon Carr, Cowboys|
• I’m curious what the Redskins and Eagles fans think about the game tonight, both from a rooting perspective, and who they want to win. If you don’t mind Giants and Cowboys fans, could you please stay out of the following polls?
If you’re a Redskins or Eagles fan who are you rooting for tonight?
If you’re a Redskins or Eagles fan who do you think will win tonight?
