After two weeks, the Eagles are still NFC East contenders

After a dismal loss in Atlanta on Monday night, coupled with a second dominant Dallas Cowboys win against Washington, the Eagles’ NFC East divisional champion chances took a little hit.

Yes, it’s only two weeks. Yes, a lot can change from now until January. And even though they’re now having to deal with a rash of injuries on top of being one game behind the Cowboys, the Eagles are currently sitting at -105 just behind the Cowboys at -110 to win the NFC East after two weeks of play.

The Birds don’t play another divisional game until October 20 when they visit the Cowboys. The odds could very well change again after the game – or even before it. And then they’ll end the regular season with four straight NFC East games, with their final match-up against the Cowboys coming three days before Christmas.

That is, of course, unless they meet in the playoffs.

For now, it seems like a two-team race in the NFC East. The Giants have already named Daniel Jones their starting quarterback for Week 3. Washington has a lot to figure out on both sides of the ball. If the Eagles can get healthy, stay healthy, and possibly trade for Jalen Ramsey, they’ll be in the thick of the NFC East, and the entire conference, for sure.
