The NFC East will come down to this

Who you got?

The NFC East may come down to which team gets the best play from its quarterback. Figuring out which team this favors is, well, complicated.

Based on talent, health and recent pedigree, Carson Wentz and the Eagles get the nod. Based on reality, no way. Wentz leads the NFL with 14 interceptions and is 31st in passer rating. Alex Smith at 36 for Washington has all the moxie in the world but is not the same player following his devastating leg surgeries and when he gets hit and goes down it is difficult to avoid looking away and hoping for the best. Andy Dalton was a credible starter with the Bengals and as a Cowboys backup can put together a strong stretch — as long as he is not asked to carry too much of the load.

Daniel Jones? The player he put on display the last two games is the best quarterback in the division, given his two-way ability to run it long and throw it deep. Is this sustainable? Is he cured of his turnover tendencies or are they about to sprout up again?

Who do you like in the NFC East? Pick a quarterback and go from there.
