Current Record: 8-6
Remaining Schedule: at Philadelphia Eagles, vs. Dallas Cowboys
With a win last week, the Washington Redskins now sit atop the NFC East. Considering the favorable schedule they possess, they'll likely find their way into the playoffs this year.
If Washington ends up in the playoffs, it'll be an extremely dangerous team for one reason: Robert Griffin III. No player has been as dynamic this year at the quarterback position, and he gives his team a chance to win every game.
What is also working in Washington's favor is that it is currently on a five-game winning streak. The Redskins have scored at least 30 points in four of those five games, showing just how potent they can be on offense.
The only real question surrounding this team is the defense. Will it be able to continue its high level of play into January? If it can, it'll be an extremely dangerous team.
However, the lack of playmakers in the secondary will ultimately push this team out of the playoffs sooner than later.
