Redskins: The Playoff Odyssey

Saturday Washington plays Philidelphia to earn the right to enter the playoffs.  This game will be hard fought if the Eagles can mount a defensive attack that pressures Kirk Cousins. Cousins historically has failed to win big games with the Washington Redskins. If we’re honest, Kirk will find a way to lose this game and the Skins will lose this game if Desean Jackson doesn’t have a good game. What does a good game constitute?  Catching Cousins under thrown balls. I believe the Skins will lose tomorrow because Cousins will break under the pressure.  Next week the Skins playoff hopes will hinge upon the performance of Kellen Moore.  If Moore is effective moving the offense down the field and the offense is efficient in the red zone I expect the Skins to lose.
