    A Look Around The NFC East: Week 1

    Each year the East seems like a crapshoot. A seemingly always competitive division that has not had a repeat winner in over a decade, most actually expect the NFC East to be a one-team show in 2018.

    That team, of course, is the defending champion Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles went 5-1 in the division a year ago, with their only loss being a meaningless one to the Cowboys to close out the regular season.

    Now all four teams enter the season hoping to build on offseasons each feel confident about. Let's look around the division and see what the Cowboys' biggest rivals will be up to on Sunday.

    Philadelphia Eagles

    Well, speaking of the Eagles, they're already off to a 1-0 start after an opening night home victory over the .

    Atlanta did their best to ruin ring-night for the champions, but could not execute in the whatsoever. While they seemed to tally a lot of yards and move the ball between the 20's effectively, they were only able to net 12 points in the loss.

    Philly now sits atop the division one game in, looking down at the rest of their competition as they did a year ago. Next week, the Eagles will travel to Tampa Bay to take on the Buccaneers, and a 2-0 start feels likely for Philadelphia.

    Unlike the Eagles, the Giants will be in action on Sunday. New York opens up the season at home against one of the AFC's elite in the .

    After drafting Saqoun Barkley and Odell Beckham to a massive contract, many expect the Giants to look as explosive as ever. Their is still a massive question mark, however, as is their .

    The Giants don't have much of a on defense, and feature some suspect linebackers. Outside of it's tough to feel confident in their group either. Jacksonville is favored in this game by 3 points despite being on the road, as the Giants are receiving a lack of respect from Vegas.

    And, to be honest, this line feels deserved.

    Washington Redskins

    Outside of the , no team in the NFC East had as much change to their offense than did the Washington Redskins. Allowing to walk to Minnesota in , Washington decided to for former Chiefs to replace him.

    Smith has had a ton of regular season success throughout his career, but has fallen short in the every time. It's possible that a new look in Washington will help him, but he won't have nearly the offensive firepower he did in Kansas City.

    The Redskins open up the on the road Sunday, taking on the . The Cardinals have one of the lowest over/under win totals in the entire league (5.5 wins), and are expected be one of the bottom teams in the NFL.

    Despite this, Washington is actually the underdog on the road this week, with their line placed at +1.
