The NFC East has a reputation for terrible football this season, but former CFL star Alex Singleton is doing his best to change the narrative all by himself.

At the same time in Week 17, Singleton’s Eagles can play a major role in who wins the worst division in the NFL. If Philadelphia upsets Washington during the final game of the regular season Sunday Night, the winner of Cowboys-Giants claims the division.
