After three weeks of NFL action, the Eagles are the top dogs in the NFC East.

The Philadelphia Eagles have made the City of Brotherly Love very happy over these last three weeks. The 3-0 start has a lot to do with that, but what’s more important is each win has shown some sort of improvement from the previous game. Hey, that’s what fans like to see, and in Philly, the Birds building to the ultimate goal, winning a championship.

Something else that has been nice to see is Philadelphia in sole possession of first place in the NFC East to punctuate their unblemished record. Prior to 2022, the NFL’s ‘Money Division’ has gotten a bad rap for how lousy its teams have been recently, but early in the regular-season campaign, the four teams of the mighty ‘NFC Least’ have played some good football and strung some wins together.

Three teams in the division have winning records. The same is true in the NFC North, but the NFC South and NFC West only have one team above .500. Each team in the NFC East had an interesting offseason, whether that’s the result of acquiring key pieces (Philly and Washington), releasing key players (Dallas), or hiring a new head coach (New York).

Right now, it looks like those moves are paying off, but then again, looks can be deceiving. Let’s discuss the state of the NFC East and dig into each franchise. As an added bonus, we’ve ranked all four teams from top to bottom.
