A tight race in the NFC East?

Will the NFC East be a lot tighter than most observers think this year? The number crunchers at Football Outsiders think that it will be.The put out their 2012 Football Outsiders Almanac earlier this month and among the many interesting nuggets contained in the book (PDF version available now, Im waiting for the Kindle version) is a projection of the NFC East wins. It is safe to say that their prediction is quite unlike youre going to find on ESPN or in Street and Smiths or whatever your newsstand preseason magazine of choice is.Basically, FO projects a repeat of 2011 with the division champ again posting a single-digit win total. Here is what the project (via Blogging the Boys):Teamwins
Eagles8.6
Giants8.3
Cowboys7.5
Redskins6.8If you round those to the nearest whole numbers here are their projected standingsEagles 9-7
Giants 8-8
Cowboys 8-8 (or 7-9)
Redskins 7-9Under this scenario with just two games separating first place from last, the Redskins would have a shot at sneaking into the playoffs with some good fortune on their end and a bit of bad luck on the part of the Eagles and Giants.Still, it would not be a good idea to catch the next flight to Vegas and put the mortgage money on the Redskins chances. They projected the Eagles at 11.7 wins last year and we all know that the Dream Team did not have a dream season as Philly went 8-8. They were in the ballpark with the other teams in the division, however, projecting 8.2 for the Giants (actual total 9 wins), 7.7 for Dallas (8 actual) and 5.6 for the Redskins (5 actual).

2018 NFL Power Rankings: Patriots prove they still got it, Rams remain top dog

In a thriller in Foxboro, the Patriots handed Kansas City its first loss of the season.

It wasn't pretty but the Rams slipped past the Broncos to remain the lone unbeaten in the NFL.

Remember when the Lions beat New England on Sunday Night Football and folks were ready to bury the Patriots? Yeah... how did that 'hot take' work out?

Will the real Redskins please stand up? A win over the Panthers moved the Skins up three spots. Give the Redskins this, they are consistently unpredictable.

The Ravens are on the rise and Marcus Mariota is happy the Titans won't have to play Baltimore again.

So the Cowboys have an offense now? Or does Jacksonville not have an elite defense anymore?

And the Bears let Brock Osweiler throw for 380 yards. Yes. You read that correct. 380 yards. 

How far will the Bears drop because of that dreadful defensive performance?
