What are the biggest issues still facing the four teams in the NFC East?
As of now, the NFL will kick off its 101st season on the night of Thursday, Sept. 10 when the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs host the Houston Texans. Of course, the offseason has been anything but normal up to this point.
Ways of life across the world, the United States included have shifted precipitously. Yet, the NFL has been undaunted in making sure their season moves forward. Free agency proceeded largely as normal while the draft was held virtually and went off without a hitch. Now training camp is edging closer.
This is the second of an eight-part series dealing with each NFL division and what are the top questions facing each club. It started with the AFC East and now it’s onto the NFC East, which features the reigning division champion Philadelphia Eagles and three clubs all with new head coaches in 2020.
One-time Green Bay Packers’ sideline leader Mike McCarthy is now in charge (maybe) of the Dallas Cowboys, longtime New England Patriots’ assistant Joe Judge heads the New York Giants and former Carolina Panthers’ boss Ron Rivera takes over the Washington Redskins.
So what are the biggest issues for each of these four clubs? Only the Eagles finished with a winning record in 2019 and none of these clubs won at least 10 games a season ago. Are there any possible solutions on the horizon? There’s less than three months before the start of NFL 2020.
NOTE: Teams are listed in order of finish in 2019.
