washington redskins shock dallas 26-24: giants gain sole possession of first place

wow, the best news the giants got this week was washington's shocking upset of the cowboys - in dallas, no less - and now the giants sit atop the division all alone! washington and dallas are now tied for second place, each with a 3-1 record. the good news kept coming after the sunday night game when the eagles managed to lose to the bears, 24-20, and dropped to third (last) place in the division with a 2-2 record.

thankfully, this news easily overshadowed what had become a mini soap opera at giants stadium last week. fans were shocked when plaxico burress was give a one week suspension for failing to show up (without explanation) at the monday team meeting - and he seemingly compounded that problem when he failed to return any phone calls from the team, as they tried to find him.

that gratuitous act of disrespect means plaxio sits out the seattle seahawks game this weekend. and, perhaps even more painful a punishment, is the hit his pocketbook will take when some serious money is withheld from his paycheck as a result of the missed playing time!
