After a wild off-season of draft picks, injuries and trades, the NFC East will be one of the most unpredictable divisions this year.
The Dallas Cowboys
The Cowboys had everything going for them heading into this season. But with Romo’s back injury and a defense with holes, the Cowboys season is up in the air. Dak Prescott looks great right now, but do keep in mind he is not playing against pro defenses yet. I do think the Cowboys will be a threat but they are in a completely different position than they were at the beginning of the off-season.
The New York Giants
Nobody has talked about the Giants over the off-season, but honestly there hasn’t been a reason to. This franchise is a struggling one, they have a great QB and an amazing wide receiver but that’s it. With Ben McAdoo as the head coach maybe they’ll surprise us, but there hasn’t been any key additions to this team that will turn the franchise around.
The Washington Redskins
Nobody knows what to expect with the Redskins right now. The big debate is if Kirk Cousins is a franchise QB and in all honesty he’s not. This team is taking it’s chances by naming Cousins the starting QB and especially by adding Josh Norman this off-season. I do believe Cousins and Norman both had lucky seasons last year, but if they are truly that good, the Redskins are a huge threat.
The Philadelphia Eagles
Here’s the thing about Philly, they have no play makers. Sam Bradford is nothing special and the fact they are sitting Carson Wentz is idiotic. The thing that confuses me with this franchise is that they gave away draft picks for a bench warmer. Wentz will be a top tier QB in the league yet the Eagles are not a threat until he is on the field.
The Winner of the NFC East is…
The Dallas Cowboys
I believe Dallas will win the division going 9-7 but don’t expect to see them past Wild Card. I don’t think any team in this division is ready for the Super Bowl but it will be a close race. The big question of the season will be Tony Romo and his health. I love Romo as a player, but I do see him retiring at the end of this season. This will be the first season of the Dak Prescott era in Dallas and it will be an interesting one.
