I wouldn't be too upset if the Redskins were 5-3 by their bye week, so as long as they beat the Eagles. They can afford to drop a game to the Bengals.

But it was proven yesterday that the Bengals are not that much of a threat to beat anyone

True. What I'm saying is, if the 'skins had to drop a third game before their bye week, I would not want it to be against an NFC team, especially an NFC East team.

The Cincy game is going to be interesting. That is their early morning, London game. I have no idea how the team will respond to that game.

I;m still surprised they have stuck with Andy Dalton all this time as their QB I mean after 0-5 in the playoffs as a starter you would think they would be looking for a change

Well shoot, just look how long Coach Marvin Lewis has hung around. He should've been fired years ago! The fact that the Bengals organization hasn't jettisoned Lewis tells you everything you need to know about Andy Dalton.

Although I have to say, Dalton is usually money during the season. He can get ya into the post season, but after that, you're on your own! I believe some NFL teams are just happy getting into the post season. It's enough to put butts in the seats and make for an enjoyable NFL experience for the fans during the season, but there's no investment to improve the team to get past that first playoff game.

Us Redskins fans probably would trade the last 16+ years for several 10+ win seasons and playoff appearances that exit after the first wild card game. Can't say we're a bad team or even mediocre, just not good enough to be contenders. But then again, there's something about when your team advances in the playoffs, and you see how close you come to getting to the big game. Even if your team doesn't go all the way, you have this hope and expectation that they're capable.

Redskins: have to beat the Eagles, the Lions and the Bengals. All three are beatable teams, so the Skins could easily end up at 6-2. But the Eagles will be pissed after their loss. The Lions showed they can be tough. And the Bengals, despite their loss to the Cowboys, are still a tough team. I see the Skins, best case scenario at 6-2 and worse case scenario at 5-3 after 8 games.

Eagles: have to beat the Redskins, the Vikings, the Cowboys and the Giants. The Redskins are a tough and dangerous team, and could easily hand the Eagles the L, as division games can go either way. The Vikings are absurdly good and are 5-0, I don't see the Eagles winning here. The Cowboys are playing lights out right now, and can easily hand the Eagles a L. The Giants, while playing pretty crumby, are still division rivals and this game can go either way. I see Eagles at 5-3 best case scenario, and potentially 4-4 after their 8 game stretch.

Cowboys: have to beat Green Bay, the Eagles, and the Browns. Cowboys are playing lights out, yes, but Green Bay is nearly impossible to beat in Green Bay. The Eagles are also going to be tough even though I think the Cowboys are the better team right now. And the Browns could be an easy W, but have been playing more competitively and shouldn't be taken lightly. I see the best case scenario, the Cowboys could be 7-1 after 8 games, but could also be 5-3.
well said. and it proves one thing, the NFC east is probably the most competitive division in the league, with the AFC west coming in second. it also proves that anything can happen in rivalry games, especially in the NFC east.

So I see 6-2 for sure for Dallas.
it is still possible for the cowboys to shoo themselves in the foot in two games, the packers and the eagles, so a 5-3 record is not out of the question

i do hope you are right, but the cowboys being 4-4 is still not out of the question. what happens if prescott goes down with an injury? teh cowboys would have to rely on sanchez, the man most likely to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

at least dalton took his team to the playoffs 5 times, remember romos record in the playoffs? remember his record in just getting to the playoffs? dalton is a solid QB just like romo is. it is more likely that the rest of the team let these guys down.

Only lose 2 games in a row if the interception man comes back for week 8(romo). No way is this team losing in a row with Dak and Elliot in the lineup
