What do black men want? We love competition. It’s one of the many things that draws us to the TV week after week on Sundays to cheer on our favorite team and see how the rest of the league shapes up.

The NFL has created theater not seen in any of the three other major sports. And it’s not even close. So what we are seeing shape up in the NFC East with two weeks left in the season is the perfect storm and NFL fans, no matter where your allegiance lies, have to appreciate what is taking place in historically one of the best divisions in football. Three teams. All 8-6. Two weeks left to play. What’s on the line? A division title and home playoff game and possibly, if other variables come into play, one wild card spot. As a fan of football and sport in general, what more can you ask for? Meaningful football down the stretch. With sympathy to the Eagles, the Redskins, Cowboys and Giants have each found themselves in the hunt and how we got to this point is just as baffling as it is exciting.

At 3-6, Redskins coach Mike Shanahan declared the Redskins all but dead, saying that they would begin evaluation process for the 2013 season. However five wins later, and behind the dynamic play of Robert Griffin, III, Washington has found itself in the driver’s seat in the division by way of the tie breaker. And in pure cliché fashion, they control their own destiny.
The Giants, who seemed to be well on their way to another division title are sputtering towards the finish line and, after a 34-0 loss to the Falcons on Sunday, doubt is setting in as to whether the Super Bowl champs can get in back on track in time. Dallas just keeps hanging in there. Somehow. Someway. With what seemed to be an inevitable loss to the Steelers on Sunday, the Cowboys found a way to win to stay in this three-ring circus. What’s going on in the NFC East is what makes the NFL king and what makes sports in general as exciting as they are. These last two weeks of the season are going to be as exciting as ever. And I can’t wait!
