Which scenario do you think gives us the best chance of making the NFC championship game?
Hmmmmmmmmm...none! =)

ATL's WR's against our secondary, eeekkkk.

I mean, they pulled out a lot of the triple option (with receivers playing the pitchmen) looks that they relied on earlier in the season, but that's consistent with the last couple of weeks. They still use play action and read option very effectively. It's mostly the same offense we've seen all year.

Simplified, sure. Probably because of the opponent and RG3's practice availability. Andy Reid and Todd Bowles did a good job attacking our tendencies. We'll surely have a lot of new stuff that Dallas hasn't seen yet for next week.

Also if Bears and Vikings lose and we win and Giants win they would get the last WC spot.

Yes but RG3 on turf is almost unstoppable

Not afraid of Atlanta. If RGIII finishes that game, we likely beat them earlier this year. It was a tie ball game until about 3 minutes to go...KC threw two late int's...

Re: Wild Card Chances as Fall Back Option

As long as we beat Dallas, I am going to be more worried about Seattle than Atlanta. Seattle has been incredible recently and they're the ones who knocked us out of the playoffs the last two times. I hate Seattle. Atlanta is not as good as their record shows and we can definitely beat them, like we should have beat them earlier in the season.

Time for the Seattle beating us in the playoffs streak to end.

Re: Wild Card Chances as Fall Back Option

The reality is that the Skins and Cowboys are very evenly matched...and most likely the winner plays Seattle...which should favor Seattle the way they have been playing out of their minds....I just want to beat the cowboys...but ironically getting in as a wild card and going to San Fran may be an easier game for the Skins....although far from a likely win.

I am just thrilled to death the Skins have more than 7 wins....that was what I thought they would achieve...i had no expectation of an awesome kicker, amazing RB and a rookie QB with zero learning curve...I was expecting 9-7 or 10-6 next year.

Hail to the Redskins!....our SB was Thanksgiving....can it happen again?.....I SAY YES
CRUSH those Cowgirls!!

I'm not concerned with the Falcons. They have been undefeated inside the Terror Dome this season which accounts for something. But I agree....that they can be beaten by a team that matches up well with them.

San Francisco route clearly gives us the best chance to win unfortunately some people have to lose for us to get there.

Edit: Another problem is that will make me 800 dollars poorer because I don't miss Redskins games in California

Y is everyone so high on Seattle? We r just as hot. Plus they to have a rookie QB so it's not like Aaron Rodgers or Brady will be playing us.

Because if you want to be honest their def is better than ours and they've out scored their opponents the last three games 150-30

True but 2 of those were against Ariz and Buffalo. I like them but they aren't some Juggernaut

I'm not sure why so many people are on the Seahawks bandwagon. They have played some great football this year but so have many other teams in the NFC, including the Washington Redskins. The Redskins could beat Seattle in Washington or in Seattle.
