2014 NFC East Predictions

Welcome to the most publicized divisions in the NFL, the NFC East features the Philadelphia Eagles and the second year of Chip Kelly’s offense, ranked 2nd in the NFL in 2013.  Add the Dallas Cowboys with Jerry Jones/Tony Romo, the Washington Redskins in their first without Mike Shanahan and surrounded by controversy over their name, and the New York Football Giants, the largest market in the country, two years removed from a Superbowl Championship and the postseason entirely and you have the makings of a solid Jerry Springer episode.

Philadelphia Eagles

No more Michael Vick and no more quarterback controversy as Nick Foles is their man.  He’s in the 3rd year of a 4 year contract worth $2.7 million dollars.  Solid value considering he threw for 2,900 yards, 27 TDs, 2 INTs, posted a league best 119.2 rate, in just 10 starts.  Foles emerges in 2014 as the clear cut starter for Chip Kelly’s offense featuring Jeremy Maclin, Riley Cooper, TEs Brent Celek and 2nd year Stanford man Zach Ertz, RB Lesean McCoy, who led the NFL in rushing with 1607 yards, and newly signed RB Darren Sproles, will more than compensate for the highly publicized departure of WR DeSean Jackson to division rival Washington.
