Beat the Cowboys, win the division.
One game to bring the NFC playoff picture into full focus, and the Washington Redskins did not wilt under the bright lights. An offensive attack led by two rookies, Robert Griffin III and Alfred Morris, toppled America's former team to earn the NFC East crown, a playoff berth and a home game to start the postseason.
There is nothing quite like bidding farewell to 2012 with a victory over the Cowboys, a division title and a chance to defy the odds once again.
No victory is perfect, but nitpicking seems moot in the wake of such a flourish to finish the regular season. Here are the winners and losers for the 'Skins from their 28-18 victory over Dallas.
