Big loss against Cowboys, but how big for Redskins?

The Redskins lost Monday night's matchup with Dallas and sole possession of first place, but hope isn't lost, right?

That's me above talking NFC East race on video with #ScoutNow. Some quick other information I couldn'tt squeeze into the interview.

Now, I'm hesistant to frame the scenario as the Redskins are good to go if they win out because they haven't won back-to-back games all season, let alone four in a row. But, that is the scenario. Washington currently holds the head-to-head tiebreaker over the Giants. With a win over the Eagles in Week 16, the Redskins would own the head to had tiebreaker over Philadelphia.

As for the schedules:

Redskins: at Bears, Bills, at Eagles, at Cowboys. None of those opponents have winning records, but Washington is 0-5 on the road.

Giants: at Dolphins, Panthers, at Vikings, Eagles. New York likely needs to beat either undefeated Carolina or 8-4 Minnesota to win the division.

Eagles: Bills, Cardinals, Redskins, at Giants. Three straight home games after momentum-altering win over the Patriots.

Analysis: Washington has the easiest strength of schedule, but the Eagles probably have the edge with three at home. Seeing as none of these teams have displayed any level of consistency, predicting the finish isn't a wise move.
