Could the Philadelphia Eagles Win the NFC East in 2013?
Although only two weeks of football have been played, the NFC East does not look anything like the grueling and treacherous division of years past. If not for the missed opportunities against the San Diego Chargers, the Philadelphia Eagles would find themselves atop the division all alone. But with a defense that is lacking the stability to support an evolving lethal offense, the Eagles have faltered yet still find themselves with a share of the lead.
Each of the last two division winners, the Washington Redskins and New York Giants, have found themselves off to 0-2 starts, dropping their first to games division foes and then failing to make up ground when their rivals dropped a game in Week 2. The Dallas Cowboys got off to a strong divisional start, beating New York, but then fell to the Kansas City Chiefs. It seems thus far that the division will be wide open, giving any of the teams a chance to take advantage and move ahead of the others in any week.
The Eagles began the Chip Kelly era with a bang, sprinting off to a large lead in Week 1 and holding on to beat Washington, putting themselves a leg up on the division. However, again, inadequate at playing the role of opportunist, they fell to a San Diego team, at home, in a giveaway at the chance to take top billing in the division. Leading up to Week 3, many questions still loom, especially about the defense, but the outlook is still positive with the other teams in the division faltering as well.
It may be 8-8 that wins in a weak 2013 NFC East and looking ahead at the schedule, the Eagles have as much chance as any to make that happen before the end of the season. It will take the offense carrying the defense across the finish line, but with the firepower moving the ball, the possibility still looms of Philadelphia returning to the playoffs in Kelly’s first year as head coach as the NFC East representative.
