The NFC East fielded some of the most mediocre teams in the league this season, yet it may be the most-talked-about division in football. Think that chatter stops in the offseason? Think again. We’ve compiled the latest on your favorite division. Get caught up.
With four games to go, the NFC East’s collection of porous football teams is a scrunched-up mess with a combined record of 19-29. But the division will still send someone to the postseason, which means each team is still striving for a possible seventeenth game.
