1. Dallas Cowboys (10-6): Call me crazy but I think Tony Romo will have a big year this year. If his skill position players in Austin, Bryant, and Murray stay healthy, look for this offense to put up a lot of points. On the other side of the ball this defense should just improve by getting DC Rob Ryan out and bringing Monte Kiffin in.
2. New York Giants (9-7): The Giants will always be in the playoff hunt as long at Eli Manning is their QB. The biggest thing that may make them miss the playoffs for the second season in a row will be if they improved their defensive line enough to mask a secondary that is prone to being exposed.
3. Washington Redskins (8-8): Operation Patience is in full swing, but will it last? I see RGIII being a better throwing Michael Vick....but that also means time off due to injury. Their defense should improve with Orakpo back but the secondary is still too questionable.
4. Philadelphia Eagles (6-10): It will be interesting to see how HC Chip Kelly does going into his first season. He was a offense built perfectly for Michael Vick, but to bad for Chip it will more that likely end with him on the injury list. The defense's move from a 4-3 to a 3-4 isn't going smoothly and will probably struggle all season.
