Owens Gets Wish, Delivers In Cowboys' 34-6 Win

!      All four NFC East teams found themselves trailing at some point in the second half of their respective games on Sunday, but two teams were able to win.
      The Cowboys, of course, rallied from a 6-3 deficit to win 34-6 over the Texans, and the Giants were able to rally from 14-3 down to beat the Falcons on the road, 27-14.
      However, the Eagles and Redskins were not as fortunate. Philadelphia couldn't hang on to beat the Saints, who improved to 5-1 with a 27-24 win. The Eagles trailed 17-3 at halftime but scored 21 straight points, only to allow 10 unanswered in the fourth quarter.
      The Redskins couldn't hold off the Vince Young-led Titans, who recorded their first win of the season by edging Washington 25-22.
      So what does it all mean in the division standings?
      The Eagles (4-2) remain in first place with a half-game lead on both the Cowboys and Giants, who meet next Monday night with identical 3-2 records. Philadelphia has already defeated the Cowboys at home, but lost to the Giants in Week 2.
      The Redskins (2-4) are a full two games behind the Eagles and are 0-2 in the division after losing to both the Giants and Cowboys.
