The NFC East features a collection of players and teams that are hot as well as those whose performance leaves something to be desired. The division race is still yet to be determined but these players and teams have played a key role in the standings through ten weeks.
To be hot, a player (or team) must be playing extremely well recently. They should be a key component of a team, one who is vital to the success and outcome of the game.
Similarly, one who is not is a player who is mired in a dreadful slump. It could be based on poor performances on a weekly basis or off-the-field issues that have plagued a team.
