Three weeks of the regular season are gone in the blink of an eye and to no one's surprise, the Philadelphia Eagles are at the top of the standings. Philly ended up being the only team in the division to post a victory in Week 3.

The NY Giants started the week off with a loss, while the Cowboys suffered a stunning defeat to the Cardinals and Washington was embarrassed by Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills. In this piece, we have our main takeaways for the division from Week 3, starting things off with the Giants and what's to come next Monday night:

4. The Giants need to post a strong showing vs. the Seahawks in Week 4

With their loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday night, the G-Men are now a lowly 1-2 on the year. Next week, they'll take on the Dolphins, who just put up 70 points on the Denver Broncos. Then after that, a date with the mighty Buffalo Bills awaits. The Giants will be major underdogs against both Miami and Buffalo.

There's a good chance they end up being 2-4 through the first six games of the year, but that's only if they take care of business against the Seahawks next week. If they fall to Seattle, then Brian Daboll and Co. could be looking at 1-5. That'd be the worst-case scenario and something that no one in New Jersey wants to see.

In order for the Giants to top Seattle, they're going to have to get into a rhythm on offense. Get Jalin Hyatt and Wan'Dale Robinson more involved please, Mike Kafka. On top of that, the offensive line needs to do its job up front. The good news there is that left tackle Andrew Thomas and left guard Ben Bredeson should be healthy enough to play. Their return, plus potentially Saquon Barkley too, will be massive for the G-Men.
