Which team is the most likely to win the NFC South title?
It’s been a weird year for the NFC North.
It’s taken the Cowboys through the playoffs twice and the Saints through six straight years without a championship.
And then, just last week, the Giants won their second straight division title.
They are currently in first place with a 12-5 record, tied with the Cowboys and Giants for the most in the NFC.
But if they can continue to play like this, the NFC West will be an extremely competitive division, and they could have a lot of interesting storylines to play out this season.
Here are some things to watch: 1.
The Giants are coming off a 4-0 start.
The Panthers and 49ers were the only teams to beat the Giants in their last four meetings, which included the Super Bowl, and the Giants haven’t lost in Dallas since 2009.
They were 8-0-1 against the NFC East in that span, which is a bit disappointing, but the Giants have been doing it for a while now.
They’ve won three straight in Dallas and four of their last six.
That is a pretty good record over the past five seasons.
And the Giants defense is coming off two consecutive wins, including the season opener.
There’s been no NFC West dominance yet.
The Falcons and Rams have played to their usual level, but this time around, it’s the Giants who have been the biggest surprise.
Atlanta has played without starting quarterback Matt Ryan, who is on the PUP list.
The Rams have lost to the Cowboys, Giants, 49ers and Eagles in a row.
And that’s not even counting the Panthers, who have dropped three straight.
If you were to break it down by division, the Eagles would be the NFC’s third-best defense, but that’s because the Panthers are also a solid team.
The Packers would be third, but with the Panthers playing at a lower level than usual.
There is no NFC East domination yet.
This might be the only time in a while that the Cowboys are the NFC champions, which makes sense given their dominance in the division.
The only teams with more wins than the Cowboys in the last five seasons are the Seahawks and Saints.
But the Cowboys were never considered a division contender by most people.
And this is the first year since 2012 that the Giants are actually the NFC champion.
They’re just missing a few games, which could lead to a big surge in their numbers as the season goes on.
But this is what happens when you lose to the Panthers and the Rams in a span of six years.
Is Dak Prescott a legitimate MVP candidate?
I’m not buying that.
He was good, but he’s not great.
Prescott is an offensive line player, which has been the case all season.
The Cowboys offense is getting better and Prescott has been very good in that regard.
He’s thrown for 3,091 yards with 20 touchdowns and five interceptions, which ranks second in the NFL among quarterbacks with at least 500 attempts.
He has been a perfect 2-0 in his past two starts, and he has been sacked just twice.
But he has struggled in the red zone.
He completed just 27.4 percent of his passes, with seven touchdowns and three interceptions.
He also had a fumble in the end zone.
Prescott also has a bad drop rate, which led to a fumble, which would lead to interceptions.
If he throws a pick-six or another big play that leads to a touchdown, Prescott could be the MVP candidate this year.
But there are questions about his durability.
He’ll be 32 years old this season, which will limit how good he can be. 5.
Is Eli Manning the best quarterback in the league?
The Giants have a solid defense, which includes one of the league’s top special teams units.
Manning is the only quarterback in league history to throw for 2,000 yards and rush for 1,000 or more yards in consecutive seasons, so it’s not hard to see why the Giants believe in him.
But his accuracy is going to be an issue.
He struggled against the Packers, who are a physical defense.
He only completed 56.3 percent of passes, which was his worst grade in the past three seasons.
Manning has a tendency to throw on third downs, which leads to mistakes.
Manning completed just 19 of his 61 passes on third down, and four were overthrown.
Is there a playoff seed waiting in the wings?
The Panthers are tied for the best record in the AFC at 8-4, and are tied with Baltimore for the top spot in the wild card standings.
The Ravens have been playing really well.
They beat the Panthers at home in Week 5 and then won their next two games.
They have a bye week this week, and will likely be playing better than the Panthers for the final few weeks.
But it’s still a possibility that the Panthers could be playing spoiler-itis against the Saints.
This is an early season division, so nobody is really in
