The results are in; the Eagles are favorites.
With 48 ESPN personalties and experts making their picks Tuesday, 83% chose the Eagles to win the NFC East, with many of those selecting Chip Kelly to win Coach of the Year.
The statistics website fivethirtyeight.com also picked the Eagles, citing they have a 42 percent playoff possibility. Here’s how the rest of the division measures up.
Robert Griffin III is the biggest question mark. He has dynamic weapons, most notably DeSean Jackson, but a new regime could give the team growing pains. Prediction: 8-8
New York Giants
Eli Manning doesn’t have the skill positions alongside him that he used to have, nor does he have a very impressive offensive or defensive line this year. Though they could surprise some, we put them third. Prediction: 7-9
Dallas boasts the surprisingly consistent Tony Romo, and has had a pretty solid offense through recent years. But aside from Dez Bryant they lack real star power or a capable defense. Prediction: 6-10
