NFC East saw the Dallas Cowboys on the top last year with the record of 13-3. Now, the other teams have gotten stronger in the offseason while the Dallas Cowboys have fallen off just a little bit with few of their defensive players moving to other cities. But, is it enough for them to fall off the top spot in the NFC East?
4) Philadelphia Eagles – All the teams in the division are good and have the potential to win it in 2017. But, right now, the Eagles are bringing up the rear in the NFC East. They got better by adding a number one option in Alshon Jeffery, giving Matthews a guy to pair up outside with and Carson Wentz another available weapon. The defense played quite well last year, but they need to improve in order for this team to be successful.
3) Washington Redskins – Kirk Cousins has a lot of great weapons available to him on the offensive side of the ball. They are pretty explosive, but the defense is holding them back. Cousins needs to play better in the big moments, and the defense needs to make some noise in order for Redskins to compete with the top two teams in the division.
2) Dallas Cowboys – Secondary of the Dallas Cowboys awful, at least before the NFL draft. When you add no signs whatsoever of the pass rush, you have a team that has fallen off the top spot. No matter how good their o-line is and their offense is, they can’t compete with Giants right now.
1) New York Giants – This team spent a lot of money on defense during the last offseason, and it paid off as nobody could score easily on against them. They were carrying Eli and company all year long. Now, they have added Brandon Marshall who is going to be a legit threat alongside Odell Beckham Jr. These two will be a big trouble for all the defenses.
