NFC East Showdown: Redskins Have the Advantage

Following the 27-23 loss to the New York Giants in Week 7, QBs Eli Manning and Robert Griffin III exchanged few words. The 'Skins won their second meeting 17-16 in Week 13.

With two games remaining in the 2012 regular season, the NFC East has become a muddled mess of winning streaks, blowouts and shutouts—turning the division into a three-way logjam at the top.  The New York Giants have stumbled while the Washington Redskins have won five straight. The Dallas Cowboys have remained in the hunt and the Philadelphia Eagles have fans at home games booing.

The NFC East is the only NFL division that does not have a team to either clinch their division, a playoff berth or a wild-card slot.  The two remaining weeks on the NFL schedule could not have made it more difficult as the four NFC East teams each have at least one inner-division game remaining. 

Through Week 15, the Redskins have the advantage in the NFC East due to their 3-1 division record and .750 win percentage.   

And to make things more complicated, three of the four teams are current odds favorites to win their Week 16 game.

The following slideshow is a breakdown of each team, their opponents and previous games played in the division.
