Washington Football Team (6-8) – 10th seed

Final three opponents:

  • at Cowboys
  • vs. Eagles
  • at Giants

It would be surprising to see the Football Team make a playoff run considering their injuries, but their schedule of familiar divisional opponents leaves the door open for an opportunity for Washington to surprise people.

With their best defender on injured reserve and their quarterback room dealing with COVID-19 issues among other issues facing this team, they would really need to buckle down and play great football to end the season.

Normally, having two away games to end the season would be bad, but that turf in Washington leaves a lot to be desired, and honestly playing games at any other stadium isn’t too much of a detriment to the Football Team.

At the moment, Washington shouldn’t be a top concern for the team to claim the final playoff spot in the NFC. However, stranger things have happened in the NFL and they will be a team to keep an eye on going forward.
