STANDING: Tied for last
ODDS TO WIN DIVISION: +800 ($100 bet would win you $800)
REMAINING SCHEDULE: at PHI, SF, NYG, KC, at ATL, DAL, at NYG
HOW THEY COULD WIN THE DIVISION: The Redskins get to 8-8 by winning this week, only losing their home games to San Francisco and Kansas City, sweeping the Giants and beating Dallas and Philadelphia getting their divisional record to 4-2. Dallas either finishes 7-9 or loses their three remaining divisional games and Philadelphia also manages only two more wins.
WHY THEY WON’T WIN THE DIVISION: Besides that being a lot to accomplish, Washington has not won back-to-back games all year. The Redskins also face the second hardest schedule of any other team in the division. The only reason they made it last year was that they won their final seven games. In that streak, only one win came against a playoff team and that was with a much more healthy Robert Griffin, III. Another seven game winning streak is not happening.
PREDICTION: 6-10, last in the NFC East
