We have arrived at the halfway point of the NFL season. Here’s a brief rundown of who are contenders, outsiders and are planning for next season.
1. Dallas Cowboys
It’s assumed that Mike McCarthy will avoid the same head scratching decisions that led to Jason Garrett’s exit in Dallas.
2. Philadelphia Eagles
A lot has to go right, but they are fortunate they play in an extremely weak division.
3. New York Giants
The future looks good at quarterback and running back, but there is still plenty of work to be done elsewhere.
4. Washington Redskins
If Ron Rivera thought his last year in Carolina was a rough ride, this first year in Washington will take the cake.
Why Did It Go To Overtime?
The trend in the NFL has been to just go for it on fourth down more often than not. Whether you’re ahead or behind, the odds are most head coaches will go for it and consequences be damned.
