Week 5 offered fireworks for Philadelphia Eagles and NFC East fans.
This past week was a unique one for NFC East and Philadelphia Eagles fans. Then again, there hasn’t been a week during the NFL season that hasn’t been. If games aren’t shootouts, we’re seeing the drama. It’s almost like watching a great movie. Players establish themselves, both young and old. Guys are stepping up after injuries. Week 5 didn’t disappoint and brought all of that and then some.
Once again, after another week of NFL action, there’s a new team at the top of the NFC East’s standings. There have been interesting individual performances but as a whole, this division is still struggling from top to bottom as only one of its squads came out of the week with a win. In 2020, the NFC East’s four teams have combined for four total wins and one tie.
This upcoming Sunday likely won’t be any different. Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott sustained a compound ankle fracture and will be out for an extended period of time. The Washington Football Team decided to bench sophomore signal-caller Dwayne Haskins, and despite that, they still don’t seem to have an answer at the quarterback position after five weeks of football.
The ‘Birds’ got back to the loss column versus the Pittsburgh steelers and no longer lead the NFC East, but they were fun to watch. Things are getting interesting in this division. Here’s how the NFC East looks heading into Week 6.
