It's now a four game season. Even DAL not out of it.

Worth watching.

We have a shot.

One game at a time.

Surprised how dead this place is.

Got to take the good times when we can.

Lord knows we had enough bad this year.

Chip can go from zero to hero in a matter of 4 games

I say we suspend christmas so we can give our full attention to this insane race.

Bills, Cardinals, Redskins, Giants. I think going 2-2 is realistic. 3-1 is possible. Would 8-8 get us in?

I think we have to count on 2-2 at best. I'm definitely shaken to the core by those Bucs and Lions games.

The Redskins game feels like a win, because they're so awful on the road. It's hard to envision a scenario where we can beat the Cardinals. We seem to have the Giants number, but a road division game is always tough. This Bills game scares me. Their offense is playing well right now. Our offense really needs to step up against their quality defense.

I have not looked to deep into all of the scenarios. Just thinking quickly about it, 2-2 could get us in if the 2 wins are vs Was and NY and neither of those two teams go better than 2-2. That would eliminate NY immediately due to the head to head sweep vs them. I have not looked at how the tie breaker with Was would go. Also, if Dallas goes 3-1 under this scenario, they are in a tie as well.

There are still too many variables to really think about this. Beat Buffalo this weekend and maybe it will start to clear up a bit.

Dallas plays in GB this week. It's hard to envision them reeling off three straight wins after that to close out the season...regardless of the opponents.

If it comes down to a tie at the end of the season with Washington, as long as we beat them by 4 points or more, I'm pretty sure we would hold the head to head tie breaker because we would have beat them by 4 points(or more depending on score) while they only beat us by 3 week 4. Not 100% positive, but that's just what I think.

I think if we beat them by 3 it goes to a best-of-5 thumb war between Lurie and Snyder.

I was away so did not see the game but the THREE return TDs do not make me forget the previous two weeks.

I don't know whether to route for the Eagles to win or to get a higher draft pick.

Dudes, you gotta enjoy this week.

Sunday comes with it's own obstacles, but we should all enjoy the NE win!!
