It doesn’t seem that the Redskins are going to be able to win this game. It may be a lot closer than people expect though.
While the Cowboys are desperate to win, they haven’t played well in recent weeks, save for a blowout win over the overrated Los Angeles Rams. Jason Garrett isn’t a very good head coach and while Bill Callahan doesn’t seem likely to stay on as the coach in Washington, the team has played hard for him in recent weeks.
The big question for Washington in this contest comes on defense. If their secondary overperforms, they’ll have a chance to win. If not, they’ll likely lose. But if Case Keenum and the offense can play well, they’ll be able to keep it close.
Overall, I’m expecting the ‘Skins will lose this game and lock up the No. 2 seed. But don’t be surprised if they’re able to give the Cowboys a run for their money.
