The NFC is always an exciting division, full of several large market teams, and long-lasting rivalries.
Last year, the division was easily the worst in the NFL, with every team sporting a sub .500 record and the Washington Football Team ultimately winning the NFC East at 7-9.
The division will shape up a bit differently this season, as several coaches have changed in the offseason and star players return from injury. Let’s break down this exciting division and find some value.

NFL NFC East Division Predictions
Dallas Cowboys +125
After missing nearly all of last season due to injury, Dak Prescott returns to Dallas and he is healthy. Prescott represents a massive upgrade for this offense that is totally stacked.
The offensive line in Dallas suffered some injuries last season, but they will be back to full strength this year.
The Cowboys have quite the offensive attack with Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb, and Michael Gallup as weapons for Dak.
There are some question marks at RB and TE, but this offense should be one of the best in the league.
Defensively, Dallas is a bit of a mess. They didn’t exactly perform well last year and will face a tougher schedule this season. Still, the NFC East is not exactly an offensive division, outside of Dallas.
Even with an atrocious defense – Dallas should win a lot of games in this division because of their elite offense.
Washington Football Team +250
The biggest change in Washington this offseason has been the signing of veteran QB Ryan Fitzpatrick.
He will bring some stability to the quarterback position for Ron Rivera as the franchise rotated between several below-average quarterbacks last season.
Fitzpatrick will have some weapons to work with in stud WR Terry McLaurin. The team also brought in Curtis Samuel and Adam Humpries this offseason.
Running back Antonio Gibson also flashed well in a receiving role. The offensive line is just okay, but this offense will be a step up from last season, but that isn’t saying much.
Defensively, the Football Team has a quality defense, but it is heavily weighted towards the front seven. The defensive line, anchored by Chase Young, is still an elite unit, possibly the best in the league.
The linebackers are above average, but the secondary does have some question marks.
Washington will improve offensively, but it’s possible that the Fitzpatrick upgrade still doesn’t make them more than a slightly above-average unit.
The defense should still play well against most teams but may have issues with elite offenses.
New York Giants +375
New York did not play well last year and 2021 doesn’t look quite as promising, but they did make some noise in free agency. Still, a group led by Joe Judge and Jason Garrett as an offensive play-caller doesn’t inspire much confidence.
Daniel Jones’ future in New York may be decided this season. The G-Men didn’t do much in the offseason to upgrade his offensive line. It likely will still be one of the league’s worst this season.
Jones has not played well under pressure throughout his career, so that will likely be a problem for the Giants’ offense. However, they did upgrade the unit in a massive way by scoring former-Lion WR Kenny Golladay.
He will join an impressive group of weapons with Darius Slayton, Sterling Sheperd, and Evan Engram. Let’s also not forget about RB Saquan Barkley who is returning from injury.
Defensively, New York did an excellent job last season with a relatively easy schedule. They actually upgraded their defense in the offseason, so there is potential for them to be even better this season on D.
Philadelphia Eagles +500
Philadelphia’s 2020 season was marred by injuries and poor quarterback play.
The Eagles have moved on in a major way, replacing head coach Doug Peterson with Nick Sirianni and QB Carson Wentz, with second-year QB Jalen Hurts.
Philly’s offensive line was full of injuries last season, but they return nearly all their starters and they are healthy coming into the season.
It’s a factor that should help Jalen Hurts. Hurts was inaccurate last season, but it’s hard to say how he pans out over a full season with a better line.
His receiving corps is rather weak compared to other passing attacks, especially inside the division.
The Eagles have a familiar formula on defense, a strong pass rush, and a weak secondary. This isn’t going to change in 2021. The pass rush looks to be good, but Philly is extremely thin at linebacker and in the secondary.
This may be a lost season for the Eagles, especially if Hurts plays poorly. I see that as a strong possibility. I like the under 6.5 wins at BetUS at -125.
NFC East Prediction
I think Dallas is easily the best team in this division and we are getting an excellent price with them at +125.
Despite their defensive woes, their offense will contend for the best in the league with Dak Prescott under center.
In Dak we trust, play Dem Boys to win the NFC East at +125.
