The Giants are ready for a fresh start in 2015, but so are there division rivals. The Dallas Cowboys were a controversial play away from the NFC Championship Game last season. The Eagles have about as new of a look as a team can take on in an offseason and the Redskins have been looking for that fresh start for some time now. Since the Giants play their NFC East rivals two times each per season, it is important to preview how the entire division shapes up.

The Cowboys are the division champions until somebody else takes their crown, hopefully the Giants accomplish that this season. I don’t think there could possibly be a team more fascinating than the unpredictable Chip Kelly’s Philadelphia Eagles. Kelly has convinced the Eagles organization to give him full control of the team. Now the Eagles look to back up the bold moves of their head coach.

If it weren’t for the dysfunction the Redskins this past season, the Giants would have finished last in the NFC East. The Giants swept the Redskins last season. Redskins coach Jay Gruden and quarterback Robert Griffin III had a relationship akin to Robin and Ted from the TV show “How I Met Your Mother.” They can’t ever seem to make it work but you know they end up together in the end. I shouldn’t joke about Washington’s misery, but one must admit they make themselves an easy target. The Redskins couldn’t choose between Griffin, Colt McCoy or Kirk Cousins at the most important position in all of football. That was the biggest problem on a 4-12 team that had many problems.

In covering each team in the NFC East, I will provide a prediction of their season. I will start with the team I predict to finish in last place in the division and work my way up to the 2015 NFC East Champion.
