WAS is going to make the playoffs. Their defense was pretty solid all year, and the offense improved by having Smith and finally giving Gibson the full workload

Whichever of NYG/WFT gets to 6 will probably make it. Both of them should get to 5 at least.

NFC East teams will be dogs in all of their non div games if I looked at schedules right

I think they beat the Eagles and have a good shot aginst the Panthers, with a mediocre chance against the 49ers if they can stop the running game.

I didn't realize the Eagles still get the Cowboys though, so it's gonna be close.

It’s beautiful that the thing I’m looking up most regarding the NFL lately is figuring if someone can get to 6 wins to win their Division. 5-10-1 might do it for Eagles.

There is a very strong chance that the Washington Football Team goes 5-11 and wins the division. The Dallas win only gets PHI to 4-10-1 going into the head to head. Could be 4-11 vs, 4-10-1 and the winner takes the division.

Giants beat WFT 2x and have Cincy and Dallas left

ooh that's a good one, normally I'd say Cincy is a loss, but no Burrow. Could go to tiebreaker and a Giants win.

Either way, under 5.5 wins for NFC East champ feels like a good bet

It gets better. Dallas has Cincy, Philly, Giants so they aren’t out even though they look dead right now.

Baker just missed Higgins in the end zone, it was a 5 yard pass and no one was within 10 yards of Higgins. It went over his head.

One of the worst passes you'll see.

This late in the season, you’ve got to wonder if that Daniel Jones hamstring injury is season-ending. You can have all the guts in the world; you’re not going to throw accurately with a bum plant leg.

I would think (from the minor hammy problems I’ve had) that moving around in the pocket would be as big of a problem as throwing.

I was analogizing to basketball, where guys play through leg injuries and manage to play passable (or even good) defense, but simply don’t have the same jump shot — because no amount of toughness will enable to will yourself to have a stable foundation.

The Refs are ridiculous. Destroyed the Pats game and destroyed the Browns.

This is absolute bullshit and it makes it very hard to watch.

Good idea by the Panthers to try to jump the XP. Didn't work though as got flagged.

Wow unlucky for Vikings - player got hurt on the big pass play. Would have eaten up a ton of the remaining clock

Fire Anthony Lynn for that run.

Immediately fire him. Absolutely coaching malpractice. Fire him.
Great young QB, awesome weapons. But yeah, he is not a good coach. For their sake I worry they will hide behind Herbert’s progress* and defensive injuries and keep him around.

*Worth noting alongside this is that Lynn was committed to starting Tyrod Taylor over Herbert until his injury forced his hand.
