Philly v. Denver is a nice option, but for my money you have to go with Washington v. New York... It's a division rivalry, and the winner is likely top dog in the NFC East.... It doesn't get any better than that....

And Dallas is only 4-3.... Likely 5-3 after they play Arizona at home this week....

The NFC East is such a tight race, I don't see how ANY division game in that division cannot be considered a spotlight game....

But they all play each other twice a year. What is that...16 games total? (2^4) I think...I'm no good at math.

No one really wants 16 games from the NFC East as spotlight games. There is only 1 spotlight game a week. The divison is tight...but they'll be plenty of games later in the season..we're not even halfway.

I chose Philly @ Denver because Philly is still the class of the NFC, facing the 5-2 Broncos, who are home. These teams don't play each other...if at all.

Divison games are so commonplace.

I voted Philly vs. Denver but none of those match ups are really, "I'm so pumped for this game" type games.

cough cough homer cough choke

I say the Redskins Vaginants, it'll be sweet to see homer the All Mighty Washington Redskins roll up homer another 52 points.

Division rivalries are the most important aspect of making it to the playoffs. Besides NFC is the toughest Div in NFL.

Define "the class" please.

noun: a major category in biological taxonomy ranking above the order and below the phylum or division

Either that or the fact that they won the division so many years in a row.

Definatly the Philly/Denver game.

Denver wants to prove they are not going to slide into a mid-season slump (as they have done in the last couple of years)

Philly wants to prove they didnt get lucky last weekend against SD...you know..the best 3-4 team EV-AR!!<gag>

Key match-ups: Denvers LB Core vs. LJ Smith
Anderson/Bell vs. Philly D
Bailey vs. TO

Can Denver defend the pass?
Can Philly run the ball?
