Who Will Win The NFC East, Eagles or Cowboys?

There are many articles on the net stating that the NFC East will be decided between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys during the last game of the season. It certainty looks like it may play out that way. The Philadelphia Eagles led by Quarterback Nick Foles and the ever improving defense are marching on. Their path to the playoffs will not be easy. They have a challenging schedule before them. To make sure they win the Division the Birds will need to win all four of their remaining games. They will host the Detroit Lions, go to Minnesota to play the Vikings, host the Chicago Bears then play at Dallas. Detroit may be their biggest challenge.

The Dallas Cowboys’ schedule is much easier. They go to Soldier Field to play a mediocre Chicago Bears team, host the Green Bay Packers. The Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers may be back at full strength. This may be the Cowboys only challenge down the stretch. The final game against Philadelphia could prove the deciding game.

Here is my take:

It is December and Dallas notoriously implodes in December. When the pressure is on and Dallas Cowboys Quarterback Tony Romo needs to be perfect, he won’t be. They also find a way to lose to bad teams. So I think the Cowboys will go two and two their last four games.

Conversely, even though the win against the Arizona Cardinals wasn’t pretty and exposed some weaknesses that need addressing post-haste, the Eagles are playing at a high level now as a team. There are no standouts except for Foles. They are hot at the right time and will probably win out.

    Eagles win out? Please. They will lose next week to Detroit. The Cowboys CAN go 2-2 and win the division as long as they beat the Eagles in the last week. Plus Romo is playing some pretty stellar football lately.

    Thanks for the comment, David. Romo usually plays stellar, I will give him that. But he usually makes one mistake at the most inopportune time. And right or wrong he will get the blame. Dallas historically is lousy in December. Nothing tells me different this year. They barely beat the Giants and Redskins. Both are sub par teams. Chicago will give you guys a hard time. The ‘Boys usually play lousy against lousy teams. It may come down to week 17 but I still think the Eagles will beat them. But if history has anything to say about it, Dallas will implode before then and that game will be a non factor for them.

    Being a Faiders fan I have no horse in this race, however there’s nothing I would rather see than the Eagles end the Cowgirls season on the last week of Schedule, their fans are a bunch of obnoxious pretentious douche bags who think that every year Dallas is Super Bowl contenders. Why is everyone in the free world knows what a choker Homo is, he will never win the big game or even get close to it. I will be watching Foles torch Dallas week 17, and to eagles fans they could very well be the sleeper in this years playoffs if they keep playing like they are.
