NFC Playoff Picture: Eagles get no help from the majorly choking Redskins


NFL: Washington Redskins at Dallas Cowboys Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles will have to wait to officially clinch the NFC East title.

The Washington Redskins lost to the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday night by a final score of 38 to 14.

The Eagles needed Washington to win in order to officially clinch the division.

But Washington just couldn’t help but beat themselves.

They made a number of dumb turnovers and mistakes, especially early on in the game. It was a total choke job performance. They just played incredibly dumb football and handed the game to the Cowboys. It didn’t help that Washington suffered approximately a billion injuries in the game as well. Especially on the offensive line.

The good news for the Eagles is that they can still officially clinch the division by beating the Seahawks in Seattle this weekend. The Cowboys only managed to delay the inevitable on Thursday night.
