The NFC East consists of four teams, namely Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles, and Washington Redskins. Since its creation in 1967, it is the Dallas Cowboys who are the most successful team in the NFC East, winning 21 division championships, 30 playoff berths, and reaching eight Super Bowls, winning five of those. The Cowboys are followed by the Philadelphia Eagle with nine division titles, 20 playoff berths, and two Super Bowl appearances, although they are yet to obtain a Super Bowl ring.
Both the Washington Redskins and New York Giants have Super Bowl victories to brag about, three for Washington, two for New York, and it was the Giants’ Super Bowl win in 2011 that was the last one won by an NFC East side.
Last season, 2015-16, the Redskins won the division with a 9-7 record, followed by the Eagles with 7-9, the Giants with 6-10, and the Cowboys bringing up the with a disappointing 4-12 record.
Preseason NFC East betting suggests the Cowboys are favorites for the division at +163, the Giants at +250, the Redskins at +333, and the Cowboys expected to finish fourth with division odds of +400.
