No team has repeated as NFC East champs since the 2004-2005 Eagles and if you believe history will repeat itself, it probably means the Dallas Cowboys are the best bet in 2020.
A division that was historically bad last season will almost certainly be more competitive this season. With just under a week away from the start of the NFL season, the Cowboys are the clear betting favorite (-110 at BetRivers Sportsbook) to claim the NFC East crown they choked away in 2019.
Dallas Cowboys -110
From a straight roster standpoint, the Dallas Cowboys should be the favorites. They are returning the majority of their offense from last season, which ranked 1st in yards per game. Drafting CeeDee Lamb with the 17th overall pick will only give this offense a boost.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Cowboys did suffer a few tough losses. Robert Quinn and Byron Jones signed elsewhere in free agency, leaving holes at corner and defensive end. The Cowboys did address the defensive end position, bringing in Everson Griffin on a one-year deal.
On paper this team deserves to be the favorite. Many of their problems last year stemmed from coaching mistakes. If this team can stay as healthy as they were last season, there is no reason why they shouldn’t win the NFC East and the price is fair at -110.
