Game-by-game predictions for every NFC East team in 2022

What I love about the NFC East is that there's legitimate venom between the respective fans. That energy is missing in modern professional sports. There's always juice for Eagles-Cowboys matchups and the arrival of Carson Wentz in Washington only adds more fuel to that football fire in Philly. With the season rapidly approaching, it felt fitting to do a game-by-game prediction for every team in the division.

I have both the Eagles and Cowboys making the playoffs, the Commanders disappointing with Carson Wentz and the Giants working their way to another top-10 pick. 

For reference, as of this writing, here are DraftKings odds to win the NFC East:

Team Odds 
 Cowboys+140
