NFC Takeaways

  • The Eagles are who we thought they were. They are absolutely dominant on paper as they try to defend their NFC crown. 
  • The 49ers are even better than we thought they were, but unfortunately, not at the most important position. Their score is 112 points better than any team in the NFL. 
  • The Cowboys continue to be all hype, without success in January and February. 
  • As down as the NFC South is, the Saints seem to stack up well according to this list. No quarterback from the South made this list. 
  • The NFC North seems to be up for grabs with Aaron Rogers out of the division. Justin Jefferson ranking as the second-best player in the league gave the Vikings a commanding lead in this scoring system.
