Which team is going to win one of the worst divisions in NFL history?

Reacting to Thursday’s Thanksgiving games.

Remember when, prior to the 2020 season, everyone thought that the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys would be the main two teams competing for the NFC East title? And that the New York Giants and Washington Football Team would be picking top five in the 2021 NFL Draft order?

Well, it’s looking like those expectations might be reversed. The Cowboys are now last in the league’s worst division and Washington is in first place with five games to go.

Will the Football Team hold on to that lead? Will the Giants overtake them? Can we write off the Eagles and Cowboys entirely as their respective fan bases don’t even want to win the division?!
