Well, this was the worst division in football last season and might be up for a repeat this season. Let’s dive into it..
1. Dallas Cowboys- I can’t imagine the Cowboys having back-to-back losing seasons. If Dak Prescott comes back somewhat healthy, I believe they have the best offense in that division just slightly ahead of the Giants because these guys already have a year together under their belt. They have also added some pieces of defense through free agency and the draft notably linebacker, Micah Parsons. The Cowboys just seem like the obvious best team on both sides of the ball in this division. They’re first game against the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Bucs on Thursday Night Football will be a good measuring stick and tone setter for the season.
2. New York Giants- I always question how last season would have turned out if Saquon Barkley didn’t tear his ACL in week two. The Giants were one win away from a division title and I think he would have made a big difference in how the season played out. Overall, the New York offense will be hard to stop and don’t be surprised if they are one of the top scoring offenses if Barkley is completely healthy. They added Kenny Golladay one of the most under appreciated receivers in the game, John Ross III who is a natural speedster, and Kadarius Toney who is a rookie I am high on and one of the steals in the draft. My only question lies with the offensive line and how much protection they can give Daniel Jones to make the big plays. Overall, expect big, explosive plays from New York and they might challenge Dallas for that division title.
3. Washington Football Team- The Washington Football Team is so exciting on the defensive end and might have the best defense in the league. The offense is the thing that I am interested in. They have dynamic wide receivers with Terry McLaurin and they added Curtis Samuel during the off-season, Antonio Gibson is a solid running back and Logan Thomas is an underrated tight end. With Ryan Fitzpatrick as the quarterback, it will be interesting to see how he utilizes the talent around him and if he can take this team to that next level this year. He has proven to be good enough to win you some regular season games, but, is he good enough to make a playoff appearance or even more?
4. Philadelphia Eagles- If I told you the Eagles were in the Super Bowl in 2018, you would think I’m crazy. Philly is definitely in a rebuilding mode with a new head coach, Nick Sirianni and sophomore quarterback Jalen Hurts. The pieces for the Eagles seem to be there to build for their future. Miles Sanders is a good, young running back and they drafted star wide receiver, DeVonta Smith from Alabama. It’s only a matter of time for these youngsters but I think they have a bright future.
