15. Washington Redskins (4-3-1)
The Redskins are hanging in there. A tie last Sunday in London against the Bengals however did not help their cause in the NFC East.
They are going to have a tough time repeating as NFC East champions with the Dallas Cowboys sitting at 6-1. The Skins do have another shot at the Cowboys on Thanksgiving in Dallas however.
The three week strech that starts on Thanksgiving will tell you everything you will need to know about the Skins chances of securing a playoff spot. After Dallas, they have two more consecutive road games at Arizona and at Philadelphia.
The schedule may not have been too kind to the Redskins in late November and early December but if they want to repeat as division champs, this is a stretch that can help that mission.
One thing is for sure, they can’t miss easy field goals and can’t blow leads if they want to make the NFC Playoffs.
