NFC East Odds: Eagles Given a 60% Chance to Win the Division Heading into Week 2

The NFL had a lot going on in Week 1 but no division had more shocking results than the NFC East in Week 1. The New York Giants stunned the Tennessee Titans. The Philadelphia Eagles escaped the Detroit Lions. The Washington Commanders escaped the Jacksonville Jaguars. Then, the Dallas Cowboys lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers without scoring a touchdown. The Cowboys also lost their starting quarterback, Dak Prescott, for at least a month due to a thumb injury. At the start of the season, the Cowboys and Eagles were pretty much given the same probability of winning the division. But the Cowboys' odds have tanked after Week 1. Here's an update on the NFC East Odds.

NFC East Odds

Philadelphia Eagles (-150)

The Philadelphia Eagles defeated the Detroit Lions in Week 1, 38-35. The Eagles pretty much had the game in the bag throughout the entire second half. However, the Lions didn't stop fighting, and Philadelphia allowed 35 points in the game.

Meanwhile, the offense didn't even feature DeVonta Smith and allowed A.J. Brown to do most of the receiving in the game. All three running backs got involved Miles Sanders, Kenneth Gainwell, and Boston Scott.

The Eagles have depth offensively with the best offensive line in the league. However, the defense was a bit concerning against the Lions, especially against the run. Philadelphia isn't a lock to win the NFC East, despite what the odds might look like.

New York Giants (+400)

The New York Giants turned heads with a come-from-behind win over the Tennessee Titans. Now they're a favorite against the Carolina Panthers at home.

Saquon Barkley looks the best he's ever looked for the Giants. The defense has some fire in them. They showed up in the second half to help earn the victory.

I'm not ready to say that the Giants are divisional contenders, but they're certainly starting to put their name in the conversation. They can easily start the year 2-0 with a win over Carolina at home.

Washington Commanders (+500)

Carson Wentz threw four touchdowns in his Washington debut. It was against the Jaguars, but I think most people, including myself, expect the Jaguars to be better this year.

We've got to give them more respect for that win over the Jaguars. They clawed it out and are moving on.

Washington is kind of sneaky with their receivers. It's a solid core of receivers that all have different skill sets. It complements the offense very well.

So we can't sleep on Washington just yet.

Dallas Cowboys (+650)

The Cowboys didn't do much in the offseason. Now they're paying for it. They've got very little playmaking at the receiver position, and now, to make matters worse, Dak Prescott will be missing some time under center.

But even when he was under center, the Cowboys looked lost offensively. The play-calling has been dull, and the offensive line hasn't performed all that well either through one week.

Dallas needs to adjust in a lot of ways to make it back up to the top in the NFC East.
