I been gone for a minute but I’m back! #NoBodyCaresTho so I will just say a few things and I’m out. As we come to the end of the 2012 regular season it is met with a bittersweet feeling. This one feels a little different with two games left the NFC East is dead locked with three teams at 8-6 (Redskins, Cowboys, Giants). There was a time when you could not argue the NFC East as the toughest division in football. For awhile instead of NFC Beast this division looked more like the NFC Least. The Beast are back and the world will be watching.
Each team in the east has had their ups and downs this season. The Skins started off slow, the Cowboys have been the Cowboys, and the Giants are consistently inconsistent. Last week the Skins were outside of the playoffs, but now the Skins are on an amazing winning streak which has led them to the top of the division. This Sunday they face some team from Philly (not really sure who they are). The Skins will beat this unknown team as RG3 is predicted to suit up. The is showing no signs of slowing down. Opposing defenses have a lot to think about when planning for this team. I see them at 9-6 going into their week 17 showdown with the Cowboys.
The Dallas Cowboys are also 8-6 heading into Sunday. Cowboys are on a win streak of themselves with their last loss being against the Redskins on Thanksgiving Day. The Cowboys are winning close games they usually find away to lose. Other players are making huge plays taking a load off of Romo. The defense is doing enough to not lose the games. The Cowboys are not a team you would want to face right now if you are desperate for a win. The biggest impact on their recent win streak is Dez Bryant realizing he can’t be stopped. With over 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns (tied for 3rd in the league) this season he is becoming one of the most dominant in the league. Cowboys week 16 match-up is at home against a Saints team who just put up 41 points. Tough game for the Boys.
The Giants specialize in looking terrible all season then getting hot at the last-minute making a run at the SuperBowl. Unfortunately, this year they may come up a little short as they do not hold their destiny in their own hands. Trailing the aforementioned Redskins and Cowboys they need some help from both of these teams who are showing no signs of slowing down. They have a very tough game this Sunday against a Ravens team who is also desperate for a win.
No matter the circumstances the world will always watch an NFC East game. There is so much hate between all of these fans it makes for great TV. Now with these 3 teams showing bright futures the rest of the NFL should be very afraid. The Beast of the East are back!
