Odds to Win NFC East Division: All Four Teams In Contention
NFC East Division Odds
Here’s the breakdown down of the NFC East Division and the odds of all four teams to win the division title during the 2013 NFL season:
The storied Eagles NFL franchise is at the beginning of a drastic change with the team parting ways with longtime head coach Andy Reid after the 2012 season. Oregon’s Chip Kelly has been hired to take over for Reid and has created a lot of debate about whether or not Philadelphia can compete under a new regime.
Although the Eagles may have found the missing piece to the puzzle in Kelly, Philadelphia will likely need a year or two to truly compete in one of the most competitive divisions in the NFL.
In a surprising twist, the Redskins were able to win the NFC East Division title for the first time since 1999 last season. Rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III proved to be the difference for the Redskins as they were arguably one of the most entertaining and offensively dynamic teams in the league.
Griffin did suffer a torn ACL injury in the playoffs that sheds some doubt on whether or not Washington will have a repeat performance in 2013.
America’s Team will be under tremendous pressure once again in 2013 with star quarterback Tony Romo signing a lucrative six-year contract extension and moves made to right the ship in Dallas.
With the pressure on once again and Romo given the respect of the team with his new deal, this may be the year Dallas finally lives up to the hype and gets back into the postseason.
With two Super Bowl titles during the Eli Manning-Tom Coughlin era, there’s no counting out the Giants. New York may have suffered a rough season in their title defense last year, but may be able to bounce back in 2013.
The signing of up-and-coming wideout Victor Cruz will be crucial to the team’s success moving forward. If Cruz signs, New York may very well prove the oddsmakers right.
