The NFL could see 3 NFC East teams in the playoffs

    Yes the title doesn't deceive your eyes, there seems to be a possibility that three East teams could make the . At the moment, the three teams that are in the playoff race are the , , and the . All three of them have a combined record of 15-3. A truly amazing stat for a division that everyone makes fun of every year.

    The fourth team in this bunch is the , and with a record of 2-4, the chances of a playoff spot are close to none at the moment, so we won't be talking about them.

    Philadelphia Eagles

    To begin, the Eagles look sharp, very sharp. As the last undefeated team in the NFL, losing their playoff spot would be unlikely, just because they would have to lose about 7 out of 11 remaining games. The Eagles look like they are for sure the best team in the league right now alongside the .

    The Eagles also have an easy (somewhat) schedule left. Their hardest teams are gonna be… well, the Cowboys and Giants. I don't think the or are going to put up much of a fight. Can the Eagles grab the number one seed this year??? I guess we'll see soon.

    New York Giants

    Wow, what a surprise, the New York Giants are playoff contenders. May I just say I love what Brian Daboll has done there. He has turned that whole team around and signs point to him being a very good coach. Not to mention that NFL fans are finally getting to see a healthy play. This man is a beast and is one of the best running backs in the league.

    The Giants have proved themselves this year, beating teams like the , , and an early Titans team (before they started to suck). Their only loss comes from the Dallas Cowboys.

    Their upcoming schedule isn't too hard. They have two games against the Eagles coming up along with a rematch against the Cowboys as well. Not to mention a good Vikings team too. If they can win two of those four games, then a playoff spot is very likely due to the rest of their schedule being on the weaker side.

    Dallas Cowboys

    Here we have a Cowboys team that has been surviving off of their for the last five weeks. managed to go 4-1 in his time as a starter this year. Now, with back, hope returns to the eyes of most .

    The Cowboys' record stands at 4-2 right now, but with the way the Cowboys' has played, the future looks very bright for this team. Not to mention that their upcoming schedule is super weak. Their toughest opponents are… yep, the Eagles and Giants. They'll have to play the Vikings as well so if they can win one of those and win the other weaker games, a spot looks promising.

    They have already gotten past killers such as the and .

    If you're wondering how this could even work, look no further than last season when the Los Angles Rams, , and all got into the playoffs. This was mainly because their losses came from conference opponents.

    This could 100% happen to the , but even if not all three, I at least project two of those teams to make it.
