In an effort to make the NFC East and NFC West look like the other side of the coin, the NFL has come up with an award for the best and worst teams in the conference.
Here are the rankings: NFC East NFC West 1.
New York Giants 2.
Dallas Cowboys 3.
Philadelphia Eagles 4.
Washington Redskins 5.
San Francisco 49ers The Giants are not the worst team in the division, but they’re not the best either.
They’re ranked No. 1, but that ranking is based on their first-place finish in the first week of the season.
In their two losses, they allowed a combined six sacks, seven quarterback hits and 20 quarterback hurries, all of which were sacks.
The Cowboys are the second-best team in this division.
They allowed the fewest sacks and quarterback hits, and were also third in quarterback hurrying.
They won the division in Week 1 and played at a higher level in the second half of the regular season.
That’s probably why they’ve only allowed a quarterback hit once all season.
The Eagles are also not the second worst team, but their first win came in Week 3.
They were third in sacks and fourth in quarterback hits.
They have been ranked No, 1 and No. 2 in this and all of the other divisions in this award since the league’s inception in 1998.
The Redskins are the worst.
They’ve allowed the most sacks and quarterbacks hits and the most interceptions in the league.
They rank No. 12 and No, 3 in the others.
Injuries have cost the Redskins their first two games this season.
Their best win came against the Panthers in Week 5.
The Giants and Cowboys are tied for No. 3 in points allowed per game, and the Eagles are No. 4 in points per game.
The 49ers are the only team in both the AFC East and the NFC West that doesn’t have a winning record in any of the divisions.
The division winner will be awarded the NFC Coach of the Year award.
