The 2014 NFL regular season is nearly upon us as this Sunday (September 7, 2014) marks the first full day of games. One division that promises to be more competitive than others (mostly for a surplus of offense and a severe lack of defense) is the NFC East, where any one of the four teams could win.

It will most likely com down to the wire as it usually does out East, so let’s take a look at how the 2014 schedule breaks down:

Philadelphia Eagles:

After winning the division in 2013, the Eagles are poised to put up a ton of points in 2014. By no means does that guarantee them the division, however. They’ll head into Indianapolis early on in Week 2, and games at San Francisco, Arizona, and Green Bay will be tough especially tough. But they only have the league’s 20th hardest schedule overall according to ESPN, and they should be able to light up the other teams in the NFC East. The Eagles are the slight favorite going into this season.

Robert Griffin III

Washington Redskins:

Washington has apparently had some growing pains under new head coach Jay Gruden, as mobile quarterback Robert Griffin still needs time to adjust to a pro-style passing game. Washington’s defense isn’t doing them any favors either, as they should give up huge numbers in the offensive-minded NFC East. But at the heart of the matter, Griffin is still a star with a bevy of dangerous weapons at his behest. If he gets hot, Washington could do some damage with the league’s 17th hardest schedule. They’ll just have to win tough games at San Fran and Indy before getting into divisional shootouts with Philly and Dallas.

RomoTrainingCamp

Dallas Cowboys:

The ‘Boys have a lot of talent heading into 2014m but they have even more question marks. The glaring one is their horrific, which was the worst in the league last year. They haven’t improved much since then, so quarterback Tony Romo will have to put a ton of yards and scores. That won’t be easy at St. Louis, Chicago, and defending champion Seattle. But with a high-powered offense set to go and coach Jason Garrett’s job on the line, Dallas won’t give up without a fight. They rank in the middle of the pack with the 18th hardest schedule this year, so things could be worse in Big D.

EliManningFace

New York Giants:

The Giants undoubtedly have the most work to do in the NFC East. They looked absolutely atrocious on both sides of the ball in 2014 as quarterback Eli Manning was highly erratic and the defense gave up too many points. They have some principle units in place, and they added two solid running backs in Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams, but they’re still fighting an uphill battle. The Giants have alternating Super Bowl years with terrible ones in recent times, so history would suggest that they’re poised to bounce back. They’re going to have to prove that against the
