What happened around the NFC East during the first week of the preseason?
Finally, the NFL offseason has progressed as the first week of the preseason is officially in the books. While the Philadelphia Eagles didn’t come away with a win, we were still able to come up with a ton of pro’s and con’s based off of what went down against last Thursday’s 31-14 loss against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
By now, we all saw how the Eagles played. Nate Sudfeld had a shaky first start but looks promising for a third-stringer. Donnel Pumphrey takes yet, another seat on the chopping block while Josh Adams sees an increase in his stock. Shelton Gibson went deep for the first time, and the Eagles starting defense is still overpowering offenses.
Despite being Super Bowl champions, the Eagles aren’t the only team in the NFC East that has become intriguing over the 2018 offseason. A lot of moves have been made over the last few months around the division, which makes this preseason a lot more interesting.
The Washington Redskins acquired a new quarterback. The New York Giants drafted themselves the top running back in 2018 class, and the Dallas Cowboys look slightly different on offense without veterans like Dez Bryant, and Jason Witten. So for now, let’s shift the focus away from the Eagles and take a look at what went on around the division during week one of the preseason!
