Even though the Redskins are only 3-6, linebacker London Fletcher knows they’re still in the playoff hunt because of how bad their division is.
“The great thing about this year is that the NFC East is so terrible.” said Fletcher via Philly.com. “You look at it and we’re in Week (11), and our leader is 5-5. So even at 3-6, we’re conceivably still in this thing.”
“Every team has been so bad, nobody’s really been able to separate themselves, so that’s good for us. That’s good for everybody (in the division).”
Fletcher even gave his own power rankings of the NFC East.
- Eagles: “The Eagles are playing really good football right now. They’re probably the top team in our division right now.”
- Giants: “The Giants have won 3 in a row.”
- Cowboys: “The Cowboys really struggled the other night against the Saints.”
- Redskins: “Based on who’s hot right now, you’d probably have to go Eagles, Giants, Cowboys, and then us, if I had to rank them.”
I’d have to agree with Fletcher’s power rankings.
