The NFC East was a two-horse race last year between the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles. The Cowboys won that race, and at press time, they're the +125 favorites to do it again in 2015. Philadelphia is second at +180, with the New York Giants on the rebound at +300 and Washington trailing behind at +1400.

The Eagles stole most of the offseason thunder from Dallas by aggressively remaking their roster, signing away former Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray (4.7 yards per carry) in the process. But Philadelphia had to cut two-time Pro Bowl guard Evan Mathis after he refused to report to OTAs, and quarterback is a position of concern with Sam Bradford, Mark Sanchez and, yes, Tim Tebow competing for the top job.


Great Scot


The Cowboys offense should keep rolling this year despite losing Murray; Joseph Randle (4.8 yards per carry lifetime) will get his touches behind a dominant offensive line. But the Dallas defense, which Football Outsiders ranked No. 22 last year in terms of efficiency, is very thin up front and in the secondary.

The New York Giants could be an intriguing play after going 6-10 SU and 7-9 ATS last year. The G-Men played well enough to post 7.5 Pythagorean Wins, and they'll expect better injury luck in 2015. Washington, meanwhile, will be starting almost from scratch under new GM Scot McCloughan, who helped build the Seattle Seahawks as their VP of player personnel. McGloughan had a strong offseason, but still has plenty of work to do on both sides of the ball.
