Postseason implications fill the atmosphere between the New York Giants and Washington Redskins for Monday Night Football.
The NFC Wild Card race has only begun to heat up and Robert Griffin III and Washington needs a win to keep pace. Across the sidelines, Eli Manning and Big Blue must win to extend their divisional lead and potentially earn a postseason bye.
After all, New York holds the tiebreaker over the San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers.
Washington, though, holds current head-to-head tiebreakers over the Dallas Cowboys, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints. That said, dropping to 5-7 with time running out would significantly lessen the Redskins' playoff odds.
Therefore, let's break down this key divisional contest with some matchups that determine Monday's victor.
