Alright, let’s get delusional, y’all. Time to look at the Redskins’ chances of making the playoffs heading into this Sunday’s game against the Ravens. Here are their odds of making the postseason in any form — winning the division or a Wild Card spot — from four trusted sources:
And now, some day-dreaming …
Clearest path for the Skins to win the division:
They win their last four games, in all of which they’ll be favored, to finish the season 10-6. The Giants lose to the Falcons in Week 15 OR the Ravens in Week 16, both of which they’ll likely be underdogs, to finish 10-6. Washington holds the tiebreaker with the better divisional record.
They lose to the Ravens, their toughest remaining game, but win their last three to finish 9-7. The Giants lose to the Falcons AND the Ravens to finish 9-7, as well. Tiebreaker to Washington.
There are a bunch of them. Use your imagination.
