When you're done celebrating the NFC East title, remember Redskins-Cowboys is this week

Playoffs are coming, but after Week 17. Read Talb Babb's Redskins-Cowboys preview and watch Ben Standig's thoughts on only points that matter Sunday,

The Washington Redskins are the 2015 NFC East division champions. *Insert Chris Baker's much scarier and intimidating "You Like That?*

How did you celebrate? 

Did you dab like Scot McCloughan, Jay Gruden and Bruce Allen did after the win? Did you yell like a mad man like Kirk Cousins did at Bruce Allen? Did you go to Ashburn to await the Redskins and start chanting "R-G-3?" 

However you decided to celebrate, it was well deserved. 

Not only was clinching the division the only thing to celebrate, but there were many more reasons.

Cousins threw for his third four-touchdown game of the season. For the first time this year on the road he didn't throw an interception. Keep celebrating. The Redskins are on a three-game winning for the first time since the last presidential election. Keep celebrating. The defense is playing out of their minds, recording 10 sacks in the last two weeks. Keep celebrating. The Redskins swept the Eagles. Keep celebrating. The Redskins avoided being the largest dumpster fire in the division for 2015. Ok, I think that's it.

Nothing to celebrate since a human lost their job, but Chip Kelly was fired, meaning this is the second coach or member of a coaching staff to be fired this season the week after they played the Redskins. It's just unbelievable to think Washington has played so well owners can't stand to look at certain people in the face ever again.

Now it's a meaningless rivalry game against the Dallas Cowboys who are led by Kellen Moore. The Cowboys found an even more unsuccessful quarterback to start for them this season. 

Somehow in the first meeting, the Redskins lost to Matt Cassel as the starter, giving him his only win on the season. No need to revisit the game. It's bad enough we had to watch and read about it a few weeks ago so I'll save everybody the time. 

Here are some stats that probably don't matter, but could be used to confuse bill collectors when they call:

- Cowboys lead the all-time series 66-43-2.

- The Redskins have lost four of the last five meetings.

- Kirk Cousins has thrown for 16 touchdowns and just two interceptions in the last seven games.

- Jordan Reed has caught five touchdowns in the last three games.

- The Redskins haven't been on a four-game winning streak since 2012.

Taking a look around the NFC East is irrelevant this week since the Redskins avoided being in the basement.

I don't know what will really happen, but I can tell you that Jerry Jones wishes he would have made that move for RG3 earlier in the season.

I don't know what will really happen, but I can tell you that Jerry's World will look like it's hosting a high school all-star game with the abundance of empty seats on Sunday when the game starts.

I don't know what will really happen, but I can tell you that Colt McCoy will finally take off his headset and enter the game on Sunday in order for Cousins to get a little rest.

This game doesn't matter, but regardless, the Redskins better not allow another Cowboys journeyman quarterback be victorious this season.
