  • A Bird’s Eye View on Rivals: Week two Week two was interesting, from the standpoint of an Eagles fan. We lost to “Fitzmagic” and the Buccaneers, saw division rival Dallas Cowboys win, and watched as the football world deemed the Rams a powerhouse. The NFC East standings lay as followed: Philadelphia Eagles 1-1 Dallas Cowboys 1-1 Washington Redskins 1-1 New York Giants 0-2 The Dallas Cowboys barely hold on against Giants Let’s just start this out by acknowledging that both of these quarterbacks did not look good. Dak Prescott threw 16/25 for 160-yards, one TD, zero interceptions. He added seven rushes for 45-yards. Eli Manning Threw a whopping 44 times only completing 33 of his attempts for 279 yards, one TD, and no interceptions. The Cowboys pulled it off and I will be the first to admit I was wrong. I did not think they would do it but I underestimated just how bad the Giants offensive line is. Eli is not good anymore, and having an offensive line that is unable to make yards for someone as dynamic as Saquon Barkley is impressively poor. Barkley carried the ball only 11 times for 28 yards. However, he caught 14 passes for 80 yards, more yards than Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard combined. The Giants lack of ability to move the ball on offense with the surplus of weapons should be highly concerning for the team going forward. Prediction: 24-6 Texans, 16-14 Cowboys This week, the Giants face the Houston Texans at home. The Texans have not looked good thus far, but it is hard to imagine them losing to a Giants team that looks dreadful in week three. The Cowboys have a chance to keep up to par with the Eagles, assuming Wentz leads the Eagles to a home victory...
  • A bird’s eye view around the NFC East The Philadelphia Eagles won their opening game of the 2018 season, without their number one quarterback and wide receiver against a Falcons team that is expected to be strong again this season. Eagles fans all know this, though. How did their rivals do? Let’s take a bird’s eye view around the division. As of now, the NFC East standings are as follows: Philadelphia Eagles 1-0 Washington Redskins 1-0 New York Giants 0-1 Dallas Cowboys 0-1 Washington Redskins impress vs Arizona A bird’s eye view starts out with the Redskins. For those of you who do not know the details, the Redskins defeated the Cardinals 24-6 with their new-look team that features Alex Smith at quarterback and Adrian Peterson running the ball. Smith was sharp. He threw 21/30 for 255 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions. Peterson looked refreshed running 26 times for 96 yards and a TD while also leading the team in receiving yards with 70 on just two catches. Though Washington looked good, they were playing the Arizona Cardinals led by “Sleeves” himself, Sam Bradford, who looks to be in for a long season. For now, we take the win with a grain of salt. Week two they host the Colts, another team that is in the bottom tier of the NFL but should pose for more of a test than the Cardinals. Something else to keep an eye on is out of Smith’s 255 passing yards only 65 of those yards were from wide receivers. As a result, tight ends and running backs accounted for the other 190. Furthermore, If Washington is to really pose a threat in the NFC, they will need to get more production from their wideouts. For now, they stand 1-0 and looked the most...
