The Redskins(5-7) lost to the Dallas Cowboys(6-6) on Thursday Night Football this week. The loss will eliminate any realistic hopes the team had of getting a wildcard playoff spot in a strong NFC this year. The Redskins can only get to 9-7 and that's just not good enough.
The Philadelphia Eagles(10-1) and New York Giants(2-9) are the other two NFC East teams playing today, and their seasons are polar opposites. Philly has the best record in the NFL and can win the NFC East title with a win tonight against the Seahawks.
The Giants are terrible and could be firing Head Coach Ben McAdoo as soon as tomorrow. GM Jerry Reese could also go in the purge, and a win today lowers their draft pick next year. They've already benched QB Eli Manning for...Geno Smith. Go Geno!
