    Playoff Scenarios

    We all know that if we win out, we'll win the division. But what about other scenarios? According to ESPN's playoff machine - if we and Dallas have identical records heading into our week 17 match-up - if we lose to them, they'll win the division as long as the Giants lose at least 1 of their remaining 2 games. Dallas would own a tie breaker over us based on best win percentage in common games and a tie breaker over the Giants based on best win percentage in division games. Record vs common opponents ranks as a higher tie-breaker than conference wins (http://espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?page=tiebreakers). However, if the Giants were to win out - assuming the same conditions ('skins and Dallas go 1-1 in final 2 weeks but Dallas beats us), the Giants would win the division.

    I think the only way we can lose 1 of our remaining games and still win the division is if it's against the Eagles and the Giants also lose 1 of their remaining 2 games. So if we lose next week to the Eagles and Dallas beats NO, but then we beat Dallas the following week and the Giants go 1-1 in the final 2 weeks, we win the division.

    Unless I screwed something up, that's what our division title scenarios look like. At least we're in control of our own destiny and we can win it by winning out.

    I wonder if any of this will factor into whether or not RG3 plays next week if there's still any question about his health. Obviously we want to win out because it's our only way to control winning the division, but playing the percentages, the Dallas game is the most important so I wonder if there's any chance we'd sit RG3 another week to ensure having him at 100% for Dallas in light of how well Cousins played and the fact that we're facing the lowly Eagles next week.

    Anyone know how we're looking on the Wild Card front just in case we don't win out?

    Its such a tight race this year that i cant even think about the 100s of scenarios. Obviously we know what happens if we win out, but if we go 1-1, we still have a chance at the 2nd WC spot. but god, for once can we just win the division? i have a lot of trash talking to do.

    Too many scenarios, I can't add any value. If the Giants win out and Seattle drops the last 2 games which is entirely possible, that will really shake things up. We just need to win out.

    The Cowboys are starting to look pretty sharp, I really hope RGIII is 100% when we play them. They rush with such speed, RGIII is such a great weapon against that rush.

    Don't have any updated stats, but I know that up to the Ravens game, RG3 had the highest QBR in the league against the blitz and has been very good against pressure in general. Through that game, against the blitz, RG3 has completed 68.2 percent of his passes for nine touchdowns and no interceptions (for a QBR of 98.4). His QBR against the four-man rush is 74.1, which is also very good.

    Hard to take your claims of being a die-hard fan seriously when you say you'd laugh at us losing to our most hated rival in the final game of the season when the division title could very well be on the line.

    I've said this before, but I think you're just like a jilted lover. Your girlfriend - in this case the Redskins - broke your heart too many times despite trying to keep high hopes, so now your defense mechanisms won't allow you to trust what you want to believe anymore because you don't want to feel that pain ever again. If lowering your expectations works for you, that's fine and dandy, but not everyone else needs it. My guess is that you'd probably cry, not laugh.

    If you want to offer some legit analysis based on actual football knowledge and insight as to why you think we'll lose to Dallas, as opposed to just continuing to be a negative Nelly without backing any of it up with anything substantive, then by all means, the floor is yours. Otherwise, just save it and keep your opinions to yourself if you're not going to say anything insightful and contribute anything good to this forum.

    So in the other thread you said that this week if dallas loses and we win, and then dallas beats us, they get the tie-breaker. This is where i get confused, what would give them the advantage? The common game wins?

    I would laugh because it would be so fitting. Would it not? You wouldn't laugh? I'm not talking like, HAHA YOU BLEW IT!!!!! But a chuckle laugh because it just would make sense.

    Don't lie, you would a lil bit. Then probably smash the TV or something.

    Why will we lose to Dallas? Miles Austin. Had he played in the Thanksgiving game we would have lost. He kills us over the middle and that's where we've been getting beat all season.

    SEASONS OVER. THE FAT LADIES STOPPED SINGING.

    Yup. Mentioned it in both places:
