Three of the four most penalized teams in the NFL reside in the ugly NFC East

I’ve been watching sloppy football all season long in the NFC East, so this doesn’t come as a surprise in the slightest:

Rank Team Penalties Yards   Rank Team Penalties Yards
1 Cowboys 97 603   17 Bears 73 497
2 Redskins 95 729   18 Patriots 73 537

6 Ravens 81 686   22 Chiefs 71 491
7 Lions 81 661   23 Raiders 71 556
8 Colts 81 534   24 Dolphins 68 500
9 Buccaneers 78 547   25 Jets 68 530
10 Cardinals 77 583   26 Chargers 68 470
11 Bills 77 573   27 Bengals 67 518

    I thought the Cowboys were exempt from penalty calls. Does this mean Michael Irvin could no longer push off?

    Funny how the Steelers have the 19th most penalties, but the 5th most penalty yards. That’s what a bunch of dirty plays will do for you

    1. Yeah, the Jags are in the same boat.

    Bad football…simply bad football being played in the NFC East.

    I think the division winner goes 8-8.

      I might be off the mark here, but it seems like there has been a lot of bad football everywhere. Like all the prime contenders are having struggles week-to-week. ATL, HOU, GB, NE, SF and CHI all have flashes of greatness and ineptitude any given week.

      By simply limiting penalties and winning the turnover battle any team has a great shot of making the playoffs…
