Assessing the NFC East Schedules
Cowboys: They released controversial wide receiver Terrell Owens this offseason but remain a big television draw, with five scheduled prime-time games. They open their new stadium in prime time in Week 2 against the Giants, and play a Monday nighter at home eight days later.
Eagles: There's a tough road opener at Carolina, but then comes a three-game homestand. The early schedule is forgiving enough that the Eagles could be the divisional front-runner by the time they enter a three-game stretch of NFC East games beginning Oct. 26.
Giants: It's tough early with consecutive NFC East games to open the season, first at home against the Redskins and then on the road at Dallas. The Cowboys game starts an early three-game road trip. It's not supposed to be easy when you're the defending division champion, but there are enough soft spots on the schedule (such as a Buccaneers-Chiefs-Raiders stretch in late September and early October) to make it manageable.
Redskins: They open at Giants Stadium against the Giants for a second straight season but things get considerably easier from there, with the Rams and Lions up next. With the Chiefs and Raiders also on the schedule, the Redskins have a chance to pile up some wins before a tough closing stretch at home against the Giants and Cowboys and on the road at San Diego.
