NFL Power Rankings: Eagles avoid NFC East cellar despite another loss
Eagles fans shouldn’t get too bummed out over a good Cowboys season.
As much as it may pain lovers of Eagles football to say this, the Dallas Cowboys, following some wise personnel moves and draft choices, have taken their place at the head of the table in the NFC East.
That won’t help the delusions of a fan base that always seems to think its team is headed to the Super Bowl (even when it’s clear to everyone else that nothing can be further from the truth). That’s fine with us though.
The Cowboys will win the NFC East. They may win it going away, but heartbreak will find them in the playoffs. They’re not on the level of the other NFC teams that precede them on this list.
Isn’t this the same team that got blown out in their regular-season opener versus the New Orleans Saints? If we hadn’t seen it for ourselves, we wouldn’t believe the tale. The Green Bay Packers have righted the ship, and they’ve done so in a hurry.
Since Week 1, they’ve won five straight games, and they seem to be getting more impressive by the week.
