The NFL Draft is over, and Philadelphia Eagles fans are upset. Knowing what we know now, where does this team rank in comparison to their NFC East rivals?
It’s often referred to by some as the “Money Division”. The NFC East is home to the Philadelphia Eagles and three more of the most popular franchises in all of the professional team sports. Whenever any of its teams meet one another, records don’t matter, and the mighty NFL does all that it can to get those games on national television or into one of those primetime slots.
This year will be no different as these age-old rivals will renew acquaintances during the 2020 regular season.
Though full of strategy, players, and brilliant coaching minds, the game of football is a simple one in some ways. Here’s an example. If a team wants to establish long-term dominance and a culture where winning happens constantly, the easiest way to do that is to win the division that they play in. The Dallas Cowboys, the New York Giants, and the Washington Redskins have all made offseason moves with one goal, beating their rivals and getting to the playoffs.
How has it worked out to this point? That’s a very good question. Here are power rankings for the four teams in the NFC East following the draft (and now that we’ve all had a chance to calm down).
