The NFC East is the worst division in football. That's not exactly breaking news to anyone, as there still isn't a single NFC East team with two wins yet. Thanks to the general incompetence of the entire division, one Redditor, u/Chibears85, discovered that the Eagles could potentially win the NFC East crown in hilarious fashion.

In fact, there's a world in which a 4-11-1 finish would result in the Eagles winning the division for the second straight season.

Look, this almost certainly isn't going to happen. The scenario would require all four NFC East teams finishing 3-3 against divisional opponents while losing every other game to non-divisional opponents from here on out. The Eagles would then win the division due to that Week 3 tie against the Cincinnati Bengals.

This scenario is obviously unrealistic, but it does highlight the idea that you might not even need to finish .500 to have a shot at the division crown.
