Will Cousins keep Vikings on top in NFC North? Do Rams have best D-line in NFL? NFL Nation has the answers
The first wave of free agency is behind us. High-profile players now have new homes, but questions still remain. NFL Nation provides the answers. Today, we look at the NFC.

NFC East: How much has the gap closed between the Eagles and the field?
The Eagles only have to look at recent NFC East history to know that success is no guarantee from one year to the next, as there hasn’t been a repeat division champ in the NFC East since the Eagles won four in a row from 2001 to ’04.

Last offseason, the Rams performed a dramatic makeover on their offense, which surged from the bottom of the league to the top in total points.
