As part of a new weekly series for Doc's Sports I will be previewing every game in the NFC East with a detailed look at my pick of the week. The new NFL season kicks things off with a bang in the division with a Sunday night clash between the Giants and the Cowboys followed by the Eagles' season opener against Washington on Monday night.
Nothing is won or lost in Week 1 of the season, but the winners in the NFC East this week will have an immediate edge in the title race considering just how competitive this division is shaping up to be. New York is a slight favorite heading into the season but Dallas and Washington are a very close second and third. The Birds are predicted to once again bring up the rear, but that is mainly because of last year's epic collapse. When you look at the projected win totals for all four teams (New York-9, Dallas and Washington-8, Philadelphia-7) the difference between finishing first or last should come down to the final few weeks of the season.
Getting back to the NFL season openers, the following is a link to my complete preview and pick for the NFC East in an article that was posted on Doc's Sports earlier this week.
