The Dallas Cowboys found themselves a part of the toughest division in the NFL in 2022. All four teams in the NFC East finished with a .500 record or better.
The Philadelphia Eagles, the eventual NFC champions, won the division with a 14-3 record. The Cowboys went 12-5 and finished second. The New York Giants finished third with a 9-7-1 record, and the Washington Commanders went 8-8-1.
As a result, the NFC East sent three teams to the playoffs last season -- the Eagles, Cowboys, and Giants. All three teams also advanced to the Divisional Round, meaning three of the four remaining NFC playoff teams came from the NFC East.
2023 is expected to be another competitive year in the NFC East.
The Eagles return fresh off their Super Bowl loss last season. The Cowboys added key veterans Brandin Cooks and Stephon Gilmore this offseason. The Giants continue to trend in the right direction after trading for tight end Darren Waller, and the Commanders might not have as good of a season with Sam Howell under center. But they'll definitely play division opponents tough.
The Giants' decision to trade for Waller this offseason was a big move and could instantly boost their offense. But does that mean they have the best tight end group in the division?
Here are the NFC East tight end units ranked from worst to best in 2023.
