Inside The NFC East

Relatively quiet with other teams in the division as its close to draft day.  Most teams like to remain quite during these last couple days and keep any moves or potential moves in house.  Secrecy is a must during draft crunch time.  Today we take a look at the Eagles’ divisional foes from a scheduling stand point.

Dallas Cowboys:

Week 1 – NYG – 8:30 PM NBC

Week 2 – @PHI – 4:25 PM FOX

Week 3 – ATL – 1:00 PM FOX

Week 4 – @NO – 8:30 PM NBC

Week 5 – NE – 4:25 PM CBS

Week 6 – BYE

Week 7 – @NYG – 4:25 PM FOX

Week 8 – SEA – 4:25 PM FOX

Week 9 – PHI – 8:30 PM NBC

Week 10 – @TB – 1:00 PM FOX

Week 11 – @MIA – 1:00 PM FOX

Week 12 – CAR – 4:30 PM CBS

Week 13 – @WSH – 8:30 PM ESPN

Week 14 – @GB – 4:25 PM FOX

Week 15 – NYJ – 8:25 PM NFLN

Week 16 – @BUF – 1:00 PM FOX

Week 17 – WSH – 1:00 PM FOX

When you win the division you get a tough schedule.  Dallas is a good team and I fully expect them to be a factor this year.  Two stretches of games really stand out to me.  Weeks 5 – 9 albeit with a bye week 6 they have New England, Giants, Seattle and the Eagles in that order.  That is a nightmare of games.  I would expect Dallas fans would be happy with 2-2 during that stretch.  Cowboys have a lot of 4:25 FOX games which means a lot of Aikman and Buck.  Get ready to hear a lot of “what an outstanding job by the Dallas Cowboys” from Aikman.  He probably says it about 40 times a game.

New York Giants:

Week 1 – @DAL – 8:30 PM NBC

Week 2 – ATL – 1:00 PM FOX

Week 3 – WSH – 8:25 PM NFLN/CBS

Week 4 – @BUF – 1:00 PM FOX

Week 5 – SF – 8:30 PM NBC

Week 6 – @PHI – 8:30 PM ESPN

Week 7 – DAL – 4:25 PM FOX

Week 8 – @NO – 1:00 PM FOX

Week 9 – @TB – 4:05 PM FOX

Week 10 – NE – 4:25 PM CBS

Week 11 – BYE

Week 12 – @WSH – 1:00 PM FOX

Week 13 – NYJ – 1:00 PM CBS

Week 14 – @MIA – 8:30 PM ESPN

Week 15 – CAR – 1:00 PM FOX

Week 16 – @MIN – 1:00 PM FOX

Week 17 – PHI – 1:00 PM FOX

A favorable schedule for big blue.  Possible tough stretch of games from weeks 5-7 however 2 of the 3 games are at home.  The Giants have had a couple of down years and I do not expect them to be down for a 3rd consecutive year.  Coughlin is a good coach and he will have these guys ready.

Washington Redskins:

Week 1 – MIA – 1:00 PM CBS

Week 2 – STL – 1:00 PM FOX

Week 3 – @NYG – 8:25 PM NFLN/CBS

Week 4 – PHI – 1:00 PM FOX

Week 5 – @ATL – 1:00 PM FOX

Week 6 – @NYJ – 1:00 PM FOX

Week 7 – TB – 1:00 PM FOX

Week 8 – BYE

Week 9 – @NE – 1:00 PM FOX

Week 10 – NO – 1:00 PM FOX

Week 11 – @CAR – 1:00 PM FOX

Week 12 – NYG – 1:00 PM FOX

Week 13 – DAL – 8:30 PM ESPN

Week 14 – @CHI – 1:00 PM FOX

Week 15 – BUF – 1:00 PM CBS

Week 16 – @PHI – 8:25 NFLN

Week 17 – @DAL – 1:00 PM FOX

Cupcake schedule for a cupcake team.  Washington could be a factor with this schedule if they can find a QB with out turnover issues.  I see the Redskins starting out fast but struggling to the finish line.  They could possibly lose 5 out of the last 6 but anything is possible with this schedule.

We will do our predictions after the draft when we can a better feel how rosters will shape out.
