None of these four teams can stop anyone. Unless that side of the ball is corrected, the NFC East will send just its division winner to the playoffs for the fourth year in a row.
The Washington Redskins face the Raiders next Sunday at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, a dump of a stadium that is falling apart and literally stinks, with sewage coming out of the faucets last week after a rainstorm during an Athletics game. It may be the perfect setting for the Redskins' 0-3 season.

Even in prosperous times, the Washington Redskins can't get out of their own way.
