Redskins Playoff Hopes
We all know the loss to the Panthers crushed the Redskins ability to control their own fate when it comes to the playoffs. So if Washington can win their next two games this is what they will need to happen to make the playoffs. First, they need the Bucs to lose one of their final two games.
They play the Saints and Panthers which are two of their NFC South rivals so neither game should be a push over. Second, the Skins need one of these two things to happen.
They need the Packers to lose once or the Lions to lose twice. The lions play the Cowboys this weekend, and then the Packers next weekend.
So if the Lions lose this weekend one of those scenarios is bound to happen unless the Lions and Packers tie next weekend. The biggest thing here is that the Skins have to win these next two games to have any shot at all.
