Power Rankings Favor Redskins In NFCE

Not much of a shocker there, right? The winners win and the losers—well they follow in our footsteps.

In a stark difference from preseason power rankings and season previews 365 days ago where experts basically had the Redskins in the “Can the University of Alabama beat this team” discussion, the team is once again in the top 10 of an NFL.com power ranking.

This is the third time that NFL.com has released a power ranking since Super Bowl XLVII ended (power outage and all) and as was the case during their first two rankings and at the end of the regular season last year, the burgundy and gold are the highest ranked NFC East team.

The division is always considered a tossup but right now, it’s as confusing as ever.

The Giants seem to have one good season followed by a bad one on a consistent basis (missed the playoffs after winning the Super Bowl two years ago), the Cowboys  being who knows what on any given day and the Eagles offering some intrigue through mystery, the Redskins have some stiff competition.

If NFL.com’s power ranking is any sort of season predictor this year though, Washington will be a shoo-in for back-to-back NFC East titles for the first time since 1983-84.

Here’s where the Redskins, and foes, stand:


It’ll be interesting to see if/how much the injury to Phillip Thomas will impact future rankings. Stay tuned.

Up next are the New York Giants, five spots behind the Redskins:


In 17th, the Dallas Cowboys:


And finally, the Redskins Week 1 opponent and the lowest ranked NFC team, the Philadelphia Eagles:


It’s because of Bacarri Rambo.

CHIME IN: What do you think about where the Redskins are in the latest power rankings? Feel free to comment below.

    This is a fun read but it’s really all about injuries; who will have the most and who has the greater depth. The Washington (new name here) looks like the best bet to take the East again but with enough injuries, they could just as easily come in last. Predicting anything before week 10 of the regular season is sort of like making up a grocery list. It’s good until you hit the aisles.

    Redskins will win the east. As far as the Washington(Razorbacks) we already have a hog tradition. Redskins should never change their name, just a suggestion should the political pressure grow too strong.

    In response to the calls from people wanting the Redskins to change their name I say H@*L NO! Tell the politicians to actually get something real done in Washington instead of pretending like they care about this issue.
