2020 has been a dreadful year for most people. However, if you are a fan of an NFC East team, you may be even more susceptible to a mental breakdown.

It is blatantly obvious that the NFC East is the worst division in professional football. It stands as the only division in the NFL where each team has a record below .500. After getting embarrassed by the Cardinals on Monday Night, somehow the Cowboys are still atop the division with a 2-4 record. Yes, you read that right, no need to adjust your screen. To say it has been a horrible year for the NFC East would be an understatement. Through six weeks of football, the division is still up for grabs for all four teams, even though none of them look like playoff contenders. Let’s have a look at each NFC East team to try and grasp exactly what the heck is going on within each organization.

Washington Football Team

We’ll start with the 1-5 Washington Football Team who, amidst a complete rebrand, are also finding themselves in the fray of another rebuild. There isn’t much to say when it comes to Washington. Head coach Ron Riviera and the organization itself are still trying to test the waters as to whether or not Dwayne Haskins can be the guy to take them to the promised land. As of week 6, Haskins hasn’t lit any fires. We were left watching Kyle Allen take the helm against the Giants.

The Washington defense has also been very bad and has given up big play after big play (I’m looking at you, Landon Collins). This certainly does not help your cause when trying to secure a victory. The best thing about Washington’s season is the return of QB Alex Smith. Smith should definitely win Comeback Player of the Year after returning to the field following that gruesome leg injury in 2018. Washington isn’t in the running to win the NFC East, despite how close the division is. In the meantime, they’ve got a lot of things to work out in DC.

New York Giants

The 1-5 Giants, like Washington, have a lot to figure out. Their biggest priority is figuring out whether or not Daniel Jones is fit to be their franchise quarterback. As of right now, they seem pretty content with Jones, though I’m not sure why.

Jones has thrown 18 picks and has fumbled the ball 22 times in 19 career games. He has the second lowest QB rating, only leading New York Jets QB Sam Darnold. Yikes.

To say turnovers are a big issue with the Giants would also be an understatement. The Giants are also adjusting to having new head coach in Joe Judge and are hoping for the return of WR Sterling Shepard. They will play a beat-up Eagles team on Thursday night. Joe Judge and the Giants still have a lot to work out in East Rutherford, like their Jets counterparts, just minus the dysfunction.

Philadelphia Eagles

Carson Wentz’s top weapon right now used to play quarterback in college. That pretty much sums up their season. That’s not to discredit Greg Ward. He has stepped up and become one of the faces of this broken down Eagles offense. Zach Ertz is another top weapon for Wentz, but his future in Philly is still up in the air. Travis Fulgham has also emerged as one of Wentz’s favorite targets. Coming into this week, though, Wentz leads the league in turnovers.

Wentz hasn’t made the heart stopping plays fans in the 215 are used to, but cut him some slack. For the fifth time in six weeks his starting O-line has been altered, so he has no stability in his offensive line whatsoever. Having Jamon Brown and rookie Jack Driscoll try and contain the monstrous Calais Campbell wouldn’t cut it for me because I think I enjoy living my life in one piece.

The injury bug really has plagued his offense in a major way. Alshon Jeffery is out, DeSean Jackson is out, and Zach Ertz and RB Miles Sanders have both been ruled out against the Giants. To add fuel to the raging injury prone fire, WR Marquise Goodwin opted out of playing this season, first round draft pick Jalen Reagor is on the sidelines with an injury, and Birds fans are now left with the likes of John Hightower and JJAW to try to secure just their second win of the season.

Dallas Cowboys

Vernon Bryant, Dallas Morning News

On to America’s team. The Cowboys lead the division at 2-4, but they were practically gifted one win from the Falcons in Super Bowl-esque fashion. Oh yeah, they beat the Giants too, but on to more important storylines within the franchise.

Andy Dalton is now the starting QB in Dallas. No, Dak Prescott didn’t tell Jerry Jones to stick it where the sun don’t shine, but instead suffered a gruesome season-ending injury against the Giants. Dalton is now tasked with being the guy for the Cowboys with Dak on the shelf. Having Cincinnati’s winningest franchise QB as your backup sounds like a steal. However, if the game against the Cardinals was a precursor of things to come, the Cowboys may need Dak more than they initially thought.

They are also adjusting to a new head coach in Mike McCarthy, but there have already been reports of locker room strife and discontent within the franchise. They have the talent to be successful. Drafting CeeDee Lamb in the first-round, signing Everson Griffen, drafting Trevon Diggs on top of having Zeke, Michael Gallup, a returning Noah Brown and Amari Cooper all seem to be steps in the right direction. Think again.

Going Forward

All four teams in the NFC East have a combined 5 wins. The Steelers, Titans, Chiefs, and Bears (!) have the same amount of wins as the entire division.

None of these teams deserve a playoff berth. Sometimes I wish the NFL would use a table of standings like the MLS or Premier League soccer. This would prevent having below average teams sneak into the playoffs, taking away a playoff berth from an actually talented team that may play in a powerhouse division.

The Eagles, Washington, and the Giants each have three of the lowest QB ratings in the league. The division is a combined 5-18-1 going into week 7. Whatever is happening in the NFC East, it has provided us with nothing short of sheer aggravation thus far. Philadelphia did come just two points shy of taking down the Ravens on Sunday, so there may be a sliver of hope for Birds fans. In the meantime though, focus on the Giants. As for the rest of the division, focus on getting your priorities in check.
