It’s not even Thanksgiving and the NFC East is unofficially over. The Eagles are going to cruise to the title, the Cowboys and Redskins might finish with losing records, and the Giants are pissing away a top draft pick. With six games to go, describing this division is going to get repetitive fast, so this week let’s visualize it.
Philadelphia Eagles (9-1)
Last Week: Continued their bye week until halftime, still defeated the Cowboys 37-9.
This Week: Host the Bears, who have scored more than 17 points three times this season.
Dallas Cowboys (5-5)
Last Week: Gave up 30 straight points in a must win game.
This Week: Host the Chargers pass rush in the late afternoon Thanksgiving game.
Washington Redskins (4-6)
Last Week: Blew a 31-16 lead with 5:58 to play and lost to the Saints 34-31 in OT.
This Week: Host the Giants in the night Thanksgiving game, because of course 2017 has the Redskins playing on Thanksgiving.
New York Giants (2-8)
Last Week: Beat the Chiefs 12-9. That is not a typo.
This Week: Ben McAdoo misses getting kicked out of a Thanksgiving all you can eat as the Giants visit the Redskins on Thursday.
