Nick Foles

Napoleon Dynamite May Determine Who Wins The NFC East

Ok, that’s title is a slight misrepresentation, but seriously…doesn’t Eagles quarterback Nick Foles resemble Napoleon Dynamite (real-life Jon Heder)?

Anyways, Foles and the  4-10 Philadelphia Eagles will have a hand in shaping the NFC East over the next two weeks.

The Eagles host Washington on Sunday in what will be a battle between rookie quarterbacks. Obviously, Foles will be opposed by either rookie starter Robert Griffin III or capable backup Kirk Cousins.

Heading into Week 16, Washington technically sits atop the NFC East, while sharing an 8-6 mark with the Cowboys and Giants.

Week 17 finds the Eagles at MetLife Stadium when they visit the New York Giants.

Meanwhile, the Giants face the “0-14” Baltimore Ravens in a game featuring two teams that were embarrassed in Week 15 action versus Atlanta and Denver respectively.

Depending on what happens in Baltimore on Sunday, the defending Super Bowl champion Giants could potentially get bumped out of the playoff picture thanks to a dude that looks like the dude who wore a Vote For Pedro t-shirt once upon a time.

Dallas hosts New Orleans in a potential trap game on Sunday. The Cowboys finish the regular season at Washington in a game that could crown the NFC East winner.

Two wins by the Eagles to end their dismal 2012 season could significantly impact the NFC East title and the NFC playoff picture. In the process, Foles could earn some new fans around Dallas, Washington, or New York.

Go get it Napoleon.
