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.
