Playoffs? What? Did you say... playoffs???
Extremely long shot no doubt. But if Meriweather's one half game boosts our defense to the level they played against the Eagles for the rest of the season or at least against the cowboys this week, this could happen:
Redskins beat the Cowboys to go 5-6, putting the Cowboys at 5-6 with the same division record and the Giants lose to the Packers putting them at 6-5. The Eagles blow and the division will be WIDE open. Giants have a tough schedule, Cowboys are inconsistent as hell, as our we. Anything could happen.
