Even at 2-4-1, the Philadelphia Eagles still have a chance at winning the NFC East.

If you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan, then you know what a struggle this season has been so far. The Eagles gathered their second win of the season via a Thursday night matchup on national television against the New York Giants. On a national scale, this was a showcase of two of the worst teams in football playing for a first place spot in the worst division in the NFL, the NFC East.

The Eagles, now at 2-4-1, sit atop the lackluster NFC East. The Dallas Cowboys were the frontrunners to compete with the Eagles for the NFC East crown. However, the Cowboys are now without not only their starting franchise quarterback Dak Prescott, but also his replacement Andy Dalton (due to a concussion suffered against the Washington Football team this past Sunday). On top of their QB issues, the Cowboys also have a plethora of injuries to their offensive line and their defense.

With New York and Washington both having bleak outlooks on the 2020 season even before injuries, the Philadelphia Eagles have become frontrunners to win the NFC East with Carson Wentz still leading the way. The Eagles are the only team with stability at the two most important roles of a franchise, the QB and the head coach.
