    If we win at least 3 of our last 4 AND if one of those wins is Week 17 at Washington, we will own tiebreakers vs both the Redskins and Giants.

    In this scenario, whether it's a 2-way tie or a 3-way tie at 9-7, we'd win the division.

    Just need to take care of our business and hope the Giants slip up a bit.

    With Sean Locklear out of the line up, that may just start to happen. Eli is like his brother, get people around his feet and he'll start to hear phantom footsteps.

    Not a wonder, looked like Locklear was getting away with a ton of holding calls last night.

    Simple solution: don't watch the games if you can't handle the unpredictability of the NFL.

    "But it's not unpredictable, we'll lose for sure!!"


    Then bet your house on a Cowboys loss and laugh your way to the bank.

    Because NYG would lose to both teams on divisional records and we would then beat Washington on common opponents, right? They were 1-1 against non-common opponents and we were 0-2 (Seattle and Chicago).

    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.

    Problem is, I feel 0-4 in my bones. Hope I'm wrong, but I don't see this ending well. Tough schedule at a time when the defense is getting gashed and we can't protect Romo.
