The NFC East has been less than impressive this season, with first-place currently shared by the New York Giants and Washington Football Team, both of whom own 4-7 records. A division winner is supposed to be a clear-cut top team, but whoever wins the division this year will likely be an underdog in any matchup in the playoffs.

One insane stat illustrates the struggles of the entire division since 2018.

The fact that no NFC East team even owns a record above .500 during that timeframe showcases all you need to know about the quality of play from this division.

The Eagles have enjoyed the best record in the division since 2018, but they've failed to make noise in the playoffs after winning the Super Bowl in the 2017 season. Now Doug Pederson is reportedly ok with getting fired by the franchise.

The Cowboys captured the division title in 2018 with a 10-6 record, but they saw an early exit and haven't returned to the playoffs since. New York and Washington have both been plagued by losing records since 2018, struggling to climb out of mediocrity.

Each of the four teams is still active in the playoff hunt with the division title up for grabs. The Eagles could gain an edge if they can defeat the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football, although Philadelphia is currently experimenting at quarterback, which isn't a great sign for a team trying to compete for the playoffs.
