2017 NFL Previews: The NFC East

  2017 NFL Previews: The NFC East The NFC East race has often come down to the wire in recent years and it will likely do so again, as all four teams in the division have a legitimate claim for a playoff berth. How will Ezekiel Elliot's suspension impact the standings? Let's speculate.I've drawn on all sorts of resources in these previews, but like anyone who writes about football and wants to get it right, I've weighed heavily on Football Outsiders and their Football Outsiders Annual, which you should purchase if you really want to know what's going on.

As Jeffrey Clayton Riegel was nearing death, among the Eagles fan 's last wishes was to have eight team members serve as his pallbearers . Riegel, a 1978 graduate of Mainland High School and longtime member of International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 351, died early the next

Remember when an Eagles fan got pinched a few years back for charging the field on gameday and spreading around his dead mom’s ashes. THAT’S how you honor a deceased die hard fan ’s final wishes . I fully plan on doing that for my father, even when the cause of death on his death certificate

A Philadelphia Eagles fan took a brutal shot at his favorite NFL team with what is believed to be a dying wish, according to his obituary.

Jeffrey Clayton Riegel passed away at the age of 56 on Aug. 18, per his obituary published in ThePress of Atlantic City.

The pertinent passage where Riegel absolutely destroys the Eagles is as follows:

He was beloved by all. God gave Jeffrey the miracle of time to prepare which allowed him to verbalize his last wishes. He requested to have 8 Philadelphia Eagles as pall bearers so the Eagles can let him down one last time.

Boom. Roasted.

Philly.com reports that the “Eagles did not immediately respond to requests for comment" after the news outlet made an inquiry.

Yeah, probably a good call. What could the team possibly say in response to that epic slam?

It’s not uncommon in the least for an obituary to feature some comment or reference to the deceased’s sports loyalties, or lack thereof (more on that here). But Mr. Riegel’s savage slam is among the best ever.

3 NFL teams primed to make 'the leap' .
If there's one predictable thing about the NFL playoffs it's this: You can't predict them in the preseason. This year should see a few franchises prepared to make a big leap into serious contention: Let's look at three of them.Just last season, the Oakland Raiders ended a 14-year postseason drought by becoming one of the most dangerous teams in the AFC. Until January, the team never lost back-to-back games and saw Derek Carr and Khalil Mack generate buzz for MVP and Defensive Player of the Year respectively. If not for the broken leg Carr suffered in Week 16, the Raiders likely would have secured the No. 2 seed in the conference and a first-round bye.
