T-3. Dallas Cowboys

Many people predict the Cowboys to go to the Superbowl, but i'm not buying it.  Don't get me wrong, the Cowboys are loaded with Romo, Austin, ect.. But in the past three years the cowboys have alternately gone to the playoffs one year then missed them the next year. I expect that trend to continue. With win's coming against Philly, NY, Green Bay, Arizona, Detroit, Chicago and Jacksonville. 

2009 overall record: 11-5 1st division

Predicted 2010 overall record: 7-9 T-3 division


T-3 Philadelphia Eagles

Some people think the Eagles are better of without McNabb and some don't. I side with those who don't. The Eagles have a lot of young talent with rising stars such as Brent Celek and Jeremy Maclin. But they do not have enough experienced players. With win's against Detroit, SF, Houston, Dallas, NY, Atlanta and Washington.

2009 overall record: 11-5 2nd division

Predicted 2010 overall record: 7-9 T-3


2. New York Giants


Many people think that the New York Giants are done, but I'm not one of them. I do think they will struggle at times, but in the end it will all come together. I expect them to grab a wildcard in the last few weeks.

2009 overall record: 8-8 3rd division

Predicted 2010 overall record: 10-6 2nd division


1. Washington Redskins

Some may call this crazy but I'm putting my money on the Redskins to be the Beast from the East. Even though it was only a preseason game, the 42-17 victory over the Bills convinced.With Wins coming against Dallas(2), Houston, Detroit, St.Louis, Tennessee, Philadelphia, New York, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis and Chicago.

2009 overall record: 4-12 4th division

Predicted 2010 overall record: 11-5 1st division
