Pretty much. The Giants can't finish better than 3-3 in the division and if we beat Washington we'll finish 4-2 in the division.
The Redskins are 3-1 in the division so if we beat them, at best they'd tie us at 4-2. But then we'd get them on common opponents, which is the next tiebreaker. We have 8 common opponents in regards to the Redskins... we're 3-2 so far, they're 2-4 so far.
