The NFC Least


Have the Cowboys lucked out this season?  The NFC East has no team that looks ready to run away with things. 

Washington just blew a 17-point lead to the Texans at home.   Any number of plays would have iced the game for Washington, and they blew them all.  Plus their new LT was dinged up.  There is no depth on that team.  Shanahan will do his best, which means they will be in the hunt for 8-8 or 9-7.  But they are flawed.

The Eagles look the most dangerous with Michael Vick at QB.  He nearly brought them back against GB, and led a high scoring attack in Detroit.  But they gave up 32 to the Lions, and Kolb is the QB as soon as his concussion clears. 

The Giants are absolutely awful.  They beat an even-worse Panthers team.  But they have no hope.  The oline is in worse shape than ours, which means no running game.  And they can't win many with Eli trying to pass his way to victory. 

The division also has touch matchups against the AFC South and NFC North. 

Thus, 9-7 looks like a division-winning record.  8-8 with the right tiebreakers might be enough.  This is the only silver lining I can find in our 0-2 start.
