Some divisions, like the AFC East, are dominated by one team year after year. The Patriots have seemingly won their division every season since the Beatles were still together (ok, only nine out of the last 10, but still).
The Redskins would love to achieve that level of dominance in their neck of the woods, and things are looking as good as they’ve been in many years, after winning the division last season and romping through the preseason.
However, repeating as NFC East champions has proven to be very elusive as of late.
It’s been almost a decade since any team (the 2003-2004 Philadelphia Eagles) went back-to-back as the No. 1 team in the division. All four NFC East teams are in big markets and have ownership groups who are very aggressive about winning, which makes for a highly competitive bunch, year after year. The NFC has almost certainly been the most competitive division in football, when taken as a whole over the past 30 years.
After nearly a decade of back-and-forth, the time is ripe for a back-to-back champ. But can the Redskins do it?
