Last year we saw an epic Super Bowl featuring the New York Giants and the New England Patriots. The Giants came out of the NFC East and the Patriots came out of the AFC East. However, all teams in these two divisions have pretty much vanished as the top teams in the league. Though the Giants and Patriots still lead their respective divisions, they only stand atop with six wins a piece.
The Giants have proven to be inconsistent all year. Earlier in the season Eli and the Giants put up satisfying numbers, but now Manning hasn’t thrown a touchdown pass in two consecutive games, and looks absolutely lost, along with the rest of the offense.
Then the Cowboys are in second. Yes, Tony Romo and the Cowboys. Just two games away from the Giants, the Cowboys have a legitimate shot at winning the division. The Giants schedule could be perhaps the most difficult in the NFL, so the Cowboys will look to capitalize on that.
The Eagles and Vick sit tied in third place after a mind-blowing (literally) loss to the Cowboys. While they sit just three games out from first, with Vick sidelined with a concussion, you can’t really expect the “Dream Team” to win the NFC East.
