The NFC East is all out of ideas

Even this picture is from 2016

NFL: Washington Redskins at Dallas Cowboys Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The Eagles played terribly and lost on the road. The Redskins had one of their worst defensive performances in a loss as the season slips away. The Giants went on the road to an AFC contender and got beat. The Cowboys offense didn’t play great, but it was enough for a win.

That was Week 13 in the NFC East. In 2016.

And it was the same in 2017. The NFC East is out of new ideas.

Philadelphia Eagles (10-2)

Last Week: Added another installment of “The Eagles have a memorably terrible game against the Seahawks.”

This Week: Jared Goff vs Carson Wentz in the greatest matchup of QBs taken 1-2 in NFL history. (Seriously, this is the first time QBs taken 1-2 have faced each other with winning records.)

2016 idea: Stupid blunder costs the Eagles a huge play in Seattle.

2017 recycled idea: Stupid blunder costs the Eagles a huge play in Seattle.

Dallas Cowboys (6-6)

Last Week: Kept the dream of actually making the playoffs alive for another week.

This Week: Visit the new look Giants, which kind of resemble the old look Giants.

2016 idea: Dak Prescott completes about a dozen passes for less than 150 yards, wins.

2017 recycled idea: Dak Prescott completes about a dozen passes for less than 150 yards, wins.

Washington Redskins (5-7)

Last Week: Held the Cowboys scoreless in two quarters, gave up 38 points in the other two.

This Week: Visit the Chargers. The Redskins have given up 4+ sacks in five of their last seven games. The Chargers are 4th in the league in sacks.

2016 idea: Follow up a needed win in primetime with a bad divisional loss.

2017 recycled idea: Follow up a needed win in primetime with a bad divisional loss.

New York Giants (2-10)

Last Week: Played so poorly that Ben McAdoo finally got his ass fired.

This Week: Eli Manning gets his starting job back in time to throw his 27th interception against the Cowboys in his 27th game against them.

2016 idea: Ben McAdoo fails to coach his team to a 30 point game.

2017 recycled idea: Ben McAdoo fails to coach his team to a 30 point game.

Let’s take a moment to remember Ben McAdoo, in his own words.

Please leave your condolences your Ben McAdoo looks like ________ in the comments.
