The NFC East remains one of pro football’s more evenly balanced divisions in the NFL. No team has repeated as this division’s champion since the Philadelphia Eagles in 2003 and 2004. Plus all four teams have rotated at taking the NFC East in each of the past four seasons. As for this fall, the Dallas Cowboys present a sound passing game, but the ground attack and defense have to make strides to help quarterback Tony Romo. Eli Manning and the New York Giants missed the postseason last year after winning Super Bowl XLVI. In addition, running Ahmad Bradshaw is gone and there are some new faces defensively as well. Up from the college ranks, former Oregon Ducks head coach Chip Kelly made the cross country move this offseason, taking over for the Philadelphia Eagles. Kelly brings an exciting offensive philosophy that should be able to utilize running back LeSean McCoy’s versatility. The question is whether Philly’s defense can avoid face-planting again. But the Washington Redskins are the favorites.
