NFL 2022 NFC East Division Preview

NFC East Division Win Total / Preview for 2022 NFL

East:

Dallas Cowboys – Current odds are 10 flat. Hard to peg this team. This article is not necessarily about projecting win totals but more so just a quick preview of each team. That said, I would have to say this one sounds about right at 10. Still the most talented roster in the NFC East, with Philly a close second, but the loss of WR Amare Cooper could hurt this season. Also, lost a starting offense lineman in La’el Collins going to Bengals.

New York Giants – Current odds are 7 under. Current win total is 7 and the juice is heavy on the under which I would have to agree with going on the low side of this total. QB situation a major question mark with Daniel Jones a possible bust as a high draft pick and now journeyman Tyrod Taylor in the mix. Lost some personnel from secondary. New head coach too so a learning curve for the team. RB Saquan Barkley just can not seem to stay healthy. Giants have not won more than 6 games since the 2016 season!

Philadelphia Eagles – Current odds are 9.5 over. Current win total 9.5 and the juice is heavy on the over which I would have to agree with going on the high side of this total. Philly considered to have one of the easiest schedules in the league and had the #1 rushing attack last season. That strong ground game will help the continued growth of Jalen Hurts at QB. Also helping him is the addition of WR AJ Brown. 

Washington Commanders – Current odds are 8 flat. The Commanders are a hard team to gauge. One even has to wonder if the off the field distractions with owner Dan Snyder are also going to hold this team back. I would say a .500 season sounds about right for this team. Carson Wentz is back in the NFC East at QB for the Commanders and how quickly some of Washington’s draft choice develop around him could be a key for this team as well. But I do not trust the defense. They struggled quite a bit last season and they need more than just a healthy Chase Young to return if they are to truly make great strides on that side of the ball.
