I got the power: NFC East power rankings

Sonja Greenfield, Senior NFL Reporter NFC North, NFC East

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

Like I said last week, I’ve never really been a huge fan of power rankings.  They’re meaningless, to be honest.  It’s essentially who’s hot and who’s not.

But when I do them, I love to have fun with it, and not take them too seriously.  For the most part.  I think a mixup of funny and serious is good.

Without further ado, I present the NFC East Power Rankings going into week 2.

Grading the NFC East, Week 1

Sonja Greenfield, Senior NFL Reporter NFC North, NFC East

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

Week 1 is in the books!  And that means school is back in session… which makes this post pretty much a gimme! The NFC East teams all faced each other opening week, so that makes it easy to grade.  Oh, and I grade on a curve in case you’re wondering.  Curves saved my grades a few times, so I’m returning the favor.

It was an eventful offseason for all teams in the division. Signings, hold outs, quarterback controversies, and more. But finally getting to play always makes it that much better.

Philadelphia Eagles:  I’ll give them an A-.  After a very, very slow start and the defense looking not great, the Eagles came alive. Quarterback Carson Wentz went on to have a day, along with returning wide receiver DeSean Jackson, and WR Alshon Jeffrey. The Eagles came back from being down 17-0 to get the win. I guess the best way to put it is that sometimes you just need to get back into the flow of regular season games.

Ezekiel Elliot gets his deal

 

Sonja Greenfield, Senior NFL Reporter NFC North, NFC East

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

In a cat and mouse game that took just about all of the offseason, the Dallas Cowboys and running back Ezekiel Elliot got his deal done, making him the highest-paid running back in the league.

The Cowboys have now secured some major parts of their team that should be pretty secure for the next few years.  While they still have a few more players to go, they’re well on their way.

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

If you’re anything like me, you’re doing a Fortnite dance because we’ve finally made it to game 4 of the preseason!!

But even though we’re at the last week of the preseason, some questions still need to be answered, and that couldn’t be any truer than in the NFC East.

Let’s go around the division and see what questions still need answers!

NFC South: preseason week 3

Week 3 of the NFL Preseason may just be an indication of how the entire season will finish up in the NFC South.

The New Orleans Saints had a commanding victory, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers squeaked one out with a game-winning field goal and both the Atlanta Falcons and Carolina Panthers struggled to find any offense at all.

Panthers QB Cam Newton suffered a foot injury and while x-rays have come back negative, seeing him in a walking boot has to put quite a bit of fear into the hearts of Carolina fans!

The NFC East round up week 3: The games

 

Sonja Greenfield, Senior NFL Reporter NFC North, NFC East

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

Three of the four teams in the division played Thursday night and the Cowboys played on Saturday.  The Giants perfect preseason record was on the line, for what that’s worth.  The Redskins were trying to figure out their quarterback situation, and the Eagles were trying to break the Raven’s preseason streak.  The Cowboys welcomed in the Texans and tried to get back to the football that was on the field, instead of contract issues.

Let’s see how it all shook out.

The NFC East round up- preseason week 2

 

Sonja Greenfield, Senior NFL Reporter NFC North, NFC East

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

Whew…what a week it’s been.  Starting with the Cowboys and their drama between owner Jerry Jones and running back Ezekiel Elliot, to the Giants quarterback Daniel Jones. Then we have the Eagles doing fun things with kickers, and last but not least, Washington continues with trade rumors for left tackle Trent Williams. Let’s head around the division to see what else has been going on.

Washington Redskins

As I mentioned just 2 sentences ago, William’s future is up in the air.  He’s apparently holding out for reasons that remain unknown, but could it be that he’s losing faith in Washington’s front office’s ability to care for him and his health in the future. The situation is still sort of unknown.

News from the AFC North

By Kate Arhar // @ClvlndK8 

Week two of the NFL Preseason has gone and plenty of questions have been left unanswered for the teams in the AFC North.

All four teams (Ravens, Bengals, Browns and Steelers) seem to have locked on to their starting quarterback. It’s going to be the position battles that most intrigue fans during training camp and the preseason. At last wide receiver Antonio Brown and his helmet issues are no longer a problem in this division! Good luck with that, Oakland!

But there were two really heartbreaking losses this week in the death’s of former Bengals running back Cedric Benson and Steelers wide receivers coach Darryl Drake.

Let’s see what’s been going on in the North….

What’s happening in the NFC East

Sonja Greenfield, Senior NFL Reporter NFC North and NFC East

By Sonja Greenfield // @Mom23RN

As I said last week, I’m going to be covering the NFC East.  And let me just start by saying when it comes to rivalries, the NFC East is the best.

The AFC North is close, but the NFC East takes the cake.  I have never seen four fan bases go so hard on each other all the time.  It’s the best thing next to the Michigan/Ohio State rivalry in my mind.

This week, I’m going to check out what’s going on with each team and what they’ve got coming up for their next preseason game!

It’s hard to believe Week 1 of the NFL Preseason is already in the books.

This season, I’ll be covering the AFC North:  Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns, and Pittsburgh Steelers.

For the past few years, this division has easily been dominated by the Steelers and Ravens. This season may bring quite a few surprises!
