NFL optimists might consider the NFC East half good because the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles each have solid rosters and quarterbacks that, when healthy, can get the job done, and either could make a run for this division depending on how the season plays out.
Football pessimists will no doubt see the NFC East as half bad since both the Washington Commanders and the New York Giants look like sub .500 teams this season, questionable under center with a long seventeen-game season ahead as these two franchises struggle.
In an NFL season where parity seems to have skipped the AFC East, this division allows for some tempting bets that gamblers can get in on before Week 1 starts on September 8, so here we look at the predictions, odds and picks for who will be kings of this half decent division.
Good luck – win big!
Odds taken from DraftKings
As long as Dak Prescott can stay healthy (a big IF) then the Cowboys should win this division, though the Eagles have enough depth to make it fun.

This last offseason, the Dallas Cowboys did what they could to make up for the loss of veteran WR Amari Cooper by drafting some young talent including Jalen Tolbert in the third round to give QB Dak Prescott another option besides star CeeDee Lamb.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones also snagged 1st round LG Tyler Smith and LT Matt Waletzko in the 5th to beef up the front line that allowed their QB to be sacked 30 times last year, far too many painful hits for an injury-prone veteran like Prescott to take throughout the regular season.
Dallas might have won the NFC East last season to earn an invite to the show, but their postseason ended early in the first round as the San Francisco 49ers took care of them by a score of 23-17, a loss that HC Mike McCarthy is no doubt using as fuel to motivate his roster.
Philly has won nine games three of the last four seasons, but they will take that over the four games they won in 2020, though last season under new HC Nick Sirianni they did manage to earn a Wildcard playoff berth which they lost to the TB Bucs, 15-31.
One of the major goals for the Eagles in 2022 is to continue developing their young QB Jalen Hurts, a solid hurler who can scramble out of the pocket with the kind of speed that can earn first downs and more, an extra rusher that opposing defenses must account for every game.
What Philadelphia has going for it is depth of roster and a talented defense coordinated by Jonathan Gannon with veteran pass rushers like DT Fletcher Cox and DE Brandon Graham on the line making life difficult for opposing quarterbacks, a young team that is expected to win.

The football jury is still out on the Commanders’ starting QB Carson Wentz after his brief and questionable stint in Indianapolis with a Colts organization that was quick to blame him for his departure, an injury-prone veteran with playoff experience.
Wentz will have deep threat WR Terry McLaurin to target and playmaking slot receiver Curtis Samuel, and now rookie first-rounder Jahan Dotson will join that room and give QB Carson another set of soft hands to throw footballs at as OC Scott Turner game plans that offense.
The oddsmakers have the over/under on Washington’s final record this season set at 7.5 wins and that’s after winning seven games last season, that lack of confidence in what HC Ron Rivera has cooked up for this year is a sign that this might be a good team to bet against.
For the last five seasons, the New York Giants have gone under .500 and failed to make the playoffs with just one postseason appearance (2016) in the last decade, but that was four head coaches ago and now that job goes to offensive guru Brian Daboll.
It will be fun to see what this talented new HC brings to the Giants’ football table since the 5x Super Bowl champion coach is so used to winning big games, this New York franchise suffering from youth under center with QB Danny “Dimes” Jones now entering his fourth NFL season.
Jones is 12-25 as the Giants’ starter and he has thrown 29 interceptions in those 37 games, his 45 total TDs overshadowed by that tendency to not take care of the football, though he could be on the field more often if rookie RUSH Kayvon Thibodeaux is as effective as advertised.

|NFC East Divisional Titles||Total|
|New York Giants||8|
The Dallas Cowboys are on top of this list with two dozen AFC East titles, a reflection of the high level of talent that the franchise has attracted over the years, a team that has earned 33 playoff berths and can be expected to compete for this shaky division during the 2022 regular season.
With eleven divisional titles, the Philadelphia Eagles are next on the list, that historic team with 23 playoff berths thanks to some Wildcard appearances, a team with a passionate fan base and a history of talented players and coaches including Andy Reid, Michael Vick, and Reggie White.
The Washington Commanders (as the Redskins) have conquered the NFC East ten times in the past, the last time being in 2020 when they did that with a 7-9 record, while the New York Giants have just 8 divisional titles, a franchise that is ready to get back to its historically better days.
|NFC East Divisional Titles||Total|
|New York Giants||4|
The NFC East is made up of former Super Bowl Champions, each of these four teams with at least one Lombardi Trophy earned, the Dallas Cowboys on top of this list with 5 total Big Game wins off of the 8 Super Bowl appearances that team has made over the years.
Next up are the New York Giants who have won four Super Bowls as a team, the last one being in 2011 when QB Eli Manning was still under center, his second Big Game win and ring, that victory also earning him an MVP award and setting the bar high for this franchise ever since.
You would have to go back to the early 90’s and late ‘80s to track down the Washington Commander’s string of Super Bowl wins, and for Eagles fans it’s not such a long track back in time since they won Super Bowl LII in 2017, the most recent NFC East Champion of the four.
