The NFC East was one of the most competitive divisions in the NFL in 2019 and it looks like that could continue to be the case in 2020. The small spread from the best team to the worst team was not necessarily because every team was challenging for a playoff spot, but because the top teams were just that underwhelming.
The Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys were competing for the top spot in 2019 while Washington and the New York Giants were breaking in rookie quarterbacks and going through transition years. This year the Cowboys and Eagles still look to be at the top of the group, but Washington and New York are hoping to close the gap.
One of the biggest defining factors for team success in the NFL is the quarterback play. The NFC East has four exciting quarterbacks that will play a large role in making or breaking their teams’ season.
Carson Wentz (Philadelphia Eagles), Dak Prescott (Dallas Cowboys), Daniel Jones (New York Giants), and Dwayne Haskin (Washington) will hope to lead their teams to improved seasons and playoff bids.
With so much attention and money riding on quarterbacks, determining which will have success and which will struggle will go a long way in determining the standings within the division.
