The NFL Season is upon us and today the NFC East is in the spotlight. Known as the toughest division in the NFL, the NFC East has produced four different division winners since 2010 with the Eagles being the only team to win two division tittles during that time. Here is how all four teams stack up this season:
Washington Redskins – From first to worst. The Washington Redskins finished with a record of 3-13. Third year starter Robert Griffin III is poised to put his sophomore year behind him. With longtime coach Mike Shannahan fired last season, first time head coach Jay Gruden will take the helm. With the signings of Ryan Clark and DeSean Jackson and a healthy RGIII, can the Redskins repeat their 2012 run?
2014 Record: 4-12, last in the NFC East
New York Giants– The New York Giants is coming off a disappointing season and already they are battling injuries in training camp. The Giants lost one of their key pieces in their offense in David Wilson who was forced to retire due to a neck injury. Can the acquisition of running back Rashad Jennings and the resurrection of Peyton Hills be enough for the Giants running game? Also can Eli Manning bounce back from throwing a league leading 27 interceptions?
2014 Record: 11-5, wins the NFC East
Dallas Cowboys– Oh those Dallas Cowboys! Every year they have the potential to win the division and they always seem to choke. America’s team have regressed going 8-8 last year. The Cowboys suffered a huge loss in their defense by cutting and losing DeMarcus Ware. With Ware gone, who will step up for the Cowboys on defense? Will Romo be healthy this season after back surgery?
2014 Record: 9-7, third in the NFC East
Philadelphia Eagles– The winner of the NFC East last year, the Eagles are poised to make another run at the title. With Nick Foles running the offense and Michael Vick gone, can the Eagles repeat?
2014 Record: 10-6, second in the NFC East
