Predict every NFC East game in week 8

If you take a look at the NFC East rankings, it’s the Dallas Cowboys and everyone. Literally. The Cowboys are 5-1 and everyone else is 2-5.

Dallas intends to escape with the division. In order for any of the other three teams, including the Washington soccer team, to even have a chance to sniff out the playoffs, they’ll need to start scoring wins before they fall behind.

Seeing that the NFC East is as unpredictable as any division on a weekly basis, we thought it would be a good idea to (try to) predict the four division games on the Week 8 roster. Since we have Already picked Washington to beat Denver in our betting preview, let’s focus on the Cowboys, Eagles, and Giants, okay?

Philadelphia Eagles vs. Detroit Lions (1 p.m. EST Sunday)

The NFL is king when it comes to ratings, but man, is anyone besides the Eagles and Lions fans interested in this game? Philadelphia’s decision to trade Carson Wentz was justifiable, but it looks more and more questionable with each passing week as he prepares for Indianapolis right now.

Jalen Hurts, meanwhile, is struggling. In seven games, he is 29th in completion percentage (61.1%), 22nd in the passers classification (89.5) and 27th in QBR (38.9). No exaggeration to say that Philly is switching from him in the offseason.

Beyond the Hurts, the Eagles’ offensive line is still a revolving door and their defense ranks in the bottom half of the NFL in points and yards.

See where we’re going with this one?

That’s right. We expect Detroit to claim its first win of the season this Sunday. It’s been a long time for the Lions, who suffered two of the most heartbreaking losses you’ll ever see. They also gave the Rams everything they could manage on the road at SoFi Stadium last weekend.

First-year head coach Dan Campbell has given Detroit his entire life week after week, and it will pay off against the Eagles 2-5 in the end. We choose the Lions to give the Ford Field faithful something to celebrate, not cry, on Sunday.

Lions 27, Eagles 20.
