WASHINGTON REDSKINS:

Current Record: 3-5 (2-2 Home/1-3 Away, 0-2 Division)

Remaining Games (8):

> at Vikings (TNF) – we can only hope that the Viking team that gave the Cowboys all they could handle shows up again Thursday night – but unlikely (WIN).

> at Eagles – a traditionally tough road game for the ‘Skins but they do enough to win (WIN).

> San Francisco (MNF) – even though this one is at home, it is hard to imagine Washington winning this game against an obviously better team; but, hey, it’s the NFL so you never know (LOSS).

> New York Giants (SNF) – could be dubbed the “late surge bowl” as whichever team wins this one likely continues its surge while the loser becomes less relevant to the division crown conversation (WIN).

> Chiefs – no one really believes this Chiefs team will go undefeated (especially with 2 games remaining against the Denver Peytons) but the Chiefs should win this matchup (LOSS).

> at Falcons – Oh how the mighty have fallen!  Once dubbed Super Bowl contenders this season, the Falcons probably won’t put up much of a fight (WIN).

> Cowboys – always a battle but this one could provide clarity to who has a realistic shot at the division and who stays home (WIN).

> at New York Giants – like the Eagles/Cowboys game, this one could determine who wins the division (LOSS).

Predicted Finish: 8-8 (3-3 Division)

    Todd I dont think 8-8 will cut even though the division looks that bad now, the Redskins are heating up and we are still inconsistent. I also don’t see Redskins losing to the Giants in the finale where the Giants will have given up. We must get to 9 or 10 wins to clinch the division, this involves beating New Orleans/Green Bay/ and or Chicago we win 2 of those plus the other games we are supposed to like the Raiders/Giants/Eagles at home I think we can get 10 wins.

    In re: your predictions for Dallas winning the division — I think many Cowboy fans think this team is going to skate through the last three division games on their merry way to a division title and a date with San Francisco. With the way this Dallas team is playing right now coupled with the re-emergence of all three division teams, the Cowboys could, conceivably lose all three. Here’s how I see it. New York’s season is lost. The Dallas game will be their Super Bowl. The Giants always crank it up in the second half of the season. Their opening season loss to Dallas , for the second time, will make them play lights out football and the pressure will be relentless in The Meadowlands stadium. It’ll take everything Dallas has to come away with a win. As for Washington, you’ve predicted them a winner in the second game. I do too. They’re playing much, much better than their first outing with Dallas. And their horses will be bigger than our horses. There’s been an renewed vigor in Philadelphia since the first game. Currently, they’re one game back in the division. If Dallas loses to New York and Washington, as I predict, then that last game is going to be for the division crown …… Again. Dallas has its hands full with the balance of this season. Until they begin to play much better, like a team that can take games away from their opponents and win, I’m not getting my hopes up for any more of a season better than 7-9 or at the very best, 8-8.

    Wish I had your faith. I’m thinking the Boys go 8 and 8 but the Eagles go 9 and 7. Another mediocre season with our hopes for 2014 predicated on the draft.

    Espn is launching their 2013 “playoff machine” after week 11. It’s a total pipe dream but fun none the less. Cowboys just need to win the division strait out. None of this 11th hour junk.
