Are the Redskins the key to the division..?

Conventional wisdom would seem to favor the Cowboys, Eagles and Giants all splitting their season series with each other; this would make all three of them 2-2 in the division when removing the Redskin games. I personally believe that these match-ups are going to work a little differently this year in that the Eagles are going to sweep the Giants; the Giants will sweep Dallas, and the Cowboys will sweep the Eagles, but the end result is the same; 2-2 for each of those 3 in the division minus the Redskins games.

Add to that the non-divisional games like Oakland, San Diego, and New Orleans. Both the G-men and Iggles have already lost to both the Chargers and Saints and I think it's reasonable to believe that the Cowboys will drop one of their games against these two.

 

The tricky part then remains who is going to lose to the Redskins because mark my words someone will. No team has ever gone winless in NFC East match ups and it's not going to happen this year either. I think it's reasonable to assume that the team (or teams) that loses to the Redskins will miss out on the divisional crown this year.

 

I say it all the time but I'll say it (or write it) again now; it's not who you play but who you play when you play them and I would have much preferred to have played the Redskins a few weeks ago then now. If there is any good to come out of the Green Bay game it's that the Redskins should face a more focused and motivated Cowboys team than they might have otherwise seen.

 

The Cowboy offense will likely have to be very patient on sunday as the points will likely be hard to come by.... At first.

 

But the defense should hold it's and eventually that Redskin armor will chink. Of course if the Cowboy offense can get out to an explosive start and build something like a 14-0 lead then the game could be over as the Redskins aren't really built to put a lot of points up quickly.
