The Cowboys Will Win the NFC East Easily

There are a lot of people that have said the Eagles will be in a dogfight with the Cowboys and might with the NFC East, I disagree this year. The downside to not having the Cowboys play preseason games could also be a blessing in disguise. Teams will not have any tape of the Cowboys or their players until a few weeks into the season.

This gives Mike McCarthy time to surprise teams a little with what he has been working on for over a year. Sure, there are tendencies from his time in Green Bay, but these are different players, a different team, and potentially a totally different McCarthy. If McCarthy can get ahead of the curve in the first five or six games then the Cowboys will have the upper hand as the season moves on.

However this is as much as what I believe the Eagles, Redskins, and Giants will be in 2020 as much as what I believe the Cowboys will be. The Eagles defensive secondary is still a huge issue for them and their receiving corps won’t be better than they were in 2019. The Redskins still have issues across the team and the Giants are nowhere near ready to compete against the Eagles or Cowboys for the East.

With all of this taken into account, the Cowboys should have the East wrapped up by week 15 and they can walk into the playoffs. The only thing that could derail this is injuries, but that could happen for any team at any time. If the Cowboys stay relatively healthy the East should be easier than many think
