Just like last year when we played the Giants in the last game in a winner take all scenario, I am starting to think the same thing may happen this year.
Last game of the year, on the road, against a division rival, winner takes the division and loser goes home. Man, it sure would suck to lose the division on the last game for the second year in a row.
Just food for though, of course this implys that we actually win a couple of games ourselves, not a guarantee by any stretch.
The Cowboys will likely be out of it by the time they face Washington in the season finale just look at their schedule. The Cowboys are not playing very good football and haven't all season they'll have their work cut out for them just to win one more game the rest of the season. Washington on the other hand is hot having won 3 straight games and Baltimore is the only formidable opponent they have left.
If the Cowboys are some how able to hang in and the NFC East did come down to the season finale between them and Washington the Cowboys will get crushed! No team folds on the road in a do or die Dec/Jan game like the Cowboys. In their last 3 do or die Dec/Jan games on the road that were do or die for them and their opponent they've been destroyed.
They were humiliated in the season finale in 08 by Philly with a playoff birth on the line 44-6. in 09 they were leveled by Minn on the road in the playoffs 34-3 and they were beaten soundly by the Giants 31-14 in the season finale last year with the NFC East on the line. Washington is clearly making progress under RG3 and Alfred Morris their rookie RB.
They're going to be a very good team next year and while they're competing for the division title every season the Cowboys will be battling Philly for the basement every year unless Jerry snaps out of his idiocy and hires a real head coach before the team declines even more. The Cowboys are regressing while the Redskins are progressing their future looks a lot brighter than the future of the Cowboys. You can clearly see they're moving up while the Cowboys CONTINUE spinning their wheels.
