World News – US – Put the whole NFC East in the sun


We’re six weeks into this NFL season We’ve seen enough so far to start making general judgments, analyzes that rely on data rather than sentiment instinctive And it is in this spirit that I propose this completely logical interpretation:

No I’m serious Pack them all Dallas, Philly, Giants, Washington – load them up and put them in orbit Lose every other game – it’s not like they’re going to win a lot of between them anyway – and give their playoff spot to, I dunno, Alabama or something

It’s an incompetent (New York), infuriating (Washington), indecisive (Phiiladelphia), incomprehensible (Dallas) division New York seems utterly helpless; Washington is a swampy mess that not even Ron Rivera can clean up; Philadelphia suffered from decimating injuries; and Dallas clearly lost his heart and soul when he lost Dak Prescott

All four teams combined take five wins It’s the same as the Seahawks, Bears, Steelers, Ravens, Titans and Chiefs Again: the Chicago Bears have won as many games this year as the ‘entire NFC East

The division is a 5-18-1 combined To get the division above 500, every member of the NFC East is expected to win every game by week 11, mid-December

Outside of the division, NFC East teams have just two wins: Dallas over Atlanta, which was a giveaway from the Falcons, and Philly with a five-point win over San Francisco, who is 3-3 over. the season Yes, the best opponent anyone in the division has beaten doesn’t even have a winning record

The NFC East is the only division in football that is completely underwater – in other words, each team has totaled fewer points over the year than their opponents.The average point spread in the division for the season is of -46 The Eagles are the « best » in this group, and even they have scored 34 points less than their opponents

The Eagles, Giants and Washington have three of the six worst cumulative quarterback scores in the league and three of the nine worst completion percentages (Shout out to the Jets and Broncos for keeping both categories low)

Digging Into The Stats Only Brings More Pain Washington has the worst offense in the run in the league, ranking last for yards per carry and last for longest range Washington, Philadelphia and New York have three of six worst total yards per reception The Giants have the lowest number of touchdowns received – three – in the league, tied with New England The Eagles only convert first downs at mid -time (504 percent) of their passes; only Jets are worse in this category

It is unlikely to get any better for the rest of the season NFC East’s crossover opponent is AFC North, whose less interesting member – Joe Burrow’s Bengals – is more convincing than the ‘one of these four teams Hell, a team made up of the best in the NFC East wouldn’t even make the AFC North playoffs

And speaking of the playoffs, we take a look at another of those glorious under-500 years of home playoffs for teams Philadelphia seems like the best bet to host the Saints or Bucs in January, one of those games. cold Saturday night qualifiers that end before half-time

If the NFC East playoff contender fails 500 hurdles – and they’ll have to win seven or eight of their next 10 games to do so even – they’ll be the first under-500 teams since the 2014 Panthers (7 -8-1) to make the playoffs At least it will be over quickly

Are there any signs of hope across the board? Maybe Washington President Jason Wright seems to be really trying to create a new culture, a Herculean task in the Snyder regime Philadelphia can’t stay hurt forever Dallas will be much better when Dak returns to the field (in 2021, but when same) The Giants I mean, the Giants apparently don’t set cars on fire or anything There’s that

A bright spot for the rest of us: the good condition of the NFC East means we are not subject to watching Cowboys-Giants or Eagles-Cowboys on Sunday night Nothing worse than settling down for some football in prime time, without another game, and being force-fed by the NFC East
