Poll: Which team winning the NFC East in 2020 would pain you the least?

Someone has to win it...

This season has been a disaster for the Dallas Cowboys, but amazingly with a 2-7 record they have legitimate mathematical life as far as winning their division is concerned. The NFC East is easily the worst division across the entire NFL this season, but thanks to the way that the playoff structure currently works somebody has to win it and whoever does will get to host a playoff game. Don’t forget about all of those fun hats and t-shirts.

Week 10 brings a game between the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles and last time that the two met provided one of the more comical moments of the season with Daniel Jones tripping in the open field, but his team still almost found a way to win.

Most people tend to believe that the Eagles are the favorite to win this division, and if they do it is possible that their front office believes them to be legitimate contenders and doesn’t make a whole lot of changes over the offseason. That would certainly be ideal for the Dallas Cowboys as the Eagles are, well, um, not good.

It is possible given this hypothetical that it makes sense to want the Eagles to win the NFC East so as to lull their franchise into a false sense of security in terms of how good they really are; however, they are the Eagles and seeing them win is nauseating.

I’m aware that you don’t ever want to see any non-Cowboys team win the division, but it is literally going to happen whether we want it to or not.

So all of that being said... who do you hope wins it? Or rather who do you not hope wins it the least?
