Playoffs?

Three teams are tied atop the NFC East at 5-7 with Dallas a game behind them at 4-8. This is hideous. Let’s break it all down.

Dallas has three division wins, that’s an advantage. New York, Philadelphia and Washington have two, but Philly and Washington have two more divisional games, while NY has one. If either Philly or Washington can get to four, they probably win the division.

However, consider this situation. Washington beats Dallas, but loses to Philadelphia while New York beats Philly. That leaves you with every team at 3-3 in the division and assuming they all have the same record, you then have a tiebreaker nightmare.

So could we have all four teams at say 7-9? Here are the schedules.

New York- @Miami, Carolina, @Minnesota, Philadelphia. The Giants are currently favored in 2 of those games.

Philadelphia- Buffalo, Arizona, Washington, @New York. The Eagles are only favored in their game against Washington right now.

Dallas- @Green Bay, Jets, @Buffalo, Washington. Dallas is only in their game against Washington right now.

Washington- @Chicago, Buffalo, @Philadelphia, @Dallas- Washington is only favored in their game against Buffalo right now.

 

None of the schedules are very easy and it is interesting that Buffalo is on three of them. This will be a fascinating final four weeks in the NFC “L”east.

    I think Dallas’ schedule has them getting even with the rest, if not, Giants probably get it done.

    Yesterday was one of the rarest days ever…I was rooting for the Giants to beat the Panthers. So close.
