The NFC East is home to some of the NFL’s most popular teams between the Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles, and the Washington Redskins (name change coming). Because of this, the NFC is always in the spotlight. The NFC East always has fantastic storylines to follow. However, a lot of the storylines stem from drama.

The Cowboy’s offensive line is still one of the leagues most dominant. barring an injury, Ezekiel Elliott will be in the running for the rushing title. However, if there were any surprises this season it would come from the NFC East.
