As we mentioned earlier this week: Yes, there’s a slim chance the Redskins still can make the playoffs.
With a couple hours to go before kickoff, here’s what you need to know:
* The Cowboys lost to the Ravens last night; that means Washington must hope for the Cowboys also to lose to the Eagles next weekend.
* Afternoon games that matter: Atlanta at Minnesota, 4:15 p.m.; Green Bay at Chicago, 8:15 p.m.
* And speaking of the Eagles … it should go without saying at this point that the Redskins need a win over them at 4:15 p.m., or it’s all moot.
Ryan and David should be checking in soon from FedEx Field.
