Our season preview has concluded with the AFC, which leads us to its counterpart — the NFC. We start with the highly contested NFC East. The Cowboys re-captured the division championship last year amidst a 13-3 finish led by their tandem rookies Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliot. Although falling short in the playoffs in typical Cowboy fashion, their season was nothing short of an amazing turnaround. With Romo out of the picture, the Cowboys seem ready to defend their division crown. The Giants, who fell short in the wildcard game against the Packers, added a few pieces including Brandon Marshall to bolster their attempt to take the division back. Let’s take a look at the picks:
- All of the writers are in agreement that the Giants have done enough to put themselves in position to win the division. Their receiver corp of Beckham, Marshall, and Shepard is clearly not one to be overlooked.
- Some regression for the Cowboys after their outstanding 13-3 season. Danny is the only one not to keep them above .500.
- YOU LIKE THAT? We don’t. The Redskins have a disappointing season amidst the Kirk Cousins contract issues and finish middle of the pack in the NFL.
- Danny has the Eagles above .500 but the rest of the writers agree that it’s 6-10 for second year QB Wentz.
