    Rams Should Pick Second Even With One Washington Win

    Though right now, if the Redskins were 4-10 and tied with Cleveland, jacksonville, oakland, Atlanta and Tampa Bay , they would draft behind Jacksonville an Oakland, and ahead of the rest.

    However, looking at who the opponents of those teams play the last two games, it's clear that the Redskins would still end up with the second overall pick, even with a win over either Dallas or the Giants.

    If my predicted results the last two weeks occur, and there aren't some hug upsets NOT involving any of the 4-10 teams, who at 5-11 would draft after the redskins anyway, the Redskins opponents end up with about 122 wins, to 125 for the Jags, 129 for Oakland and 130 for the Browns.

    Hopefully the Redskins won't win any more games, but clearly, if they do, because of the way the last two week schedules match up, they should win the tiebreaker with all those other teams.

    It helps the Redskins that many of the most competetive games remaining for their season opponents are in their division, so the most wins that can be added is lowered.

    For the next two weeks, my favorite teams are the Rams, the Texans, and whoever is playing the Redskins.

    That is what I thought when I looked at the tiebreaker schedules Sunday night. Basically if Dallas wins this week, we would be locked into #2 at worst. And that could make week 17 very interesting since I think Houston vs Tennessee is a winnable game for the Texans.

    I rechecked myfinal predicted numbers, not using the one i had used that was on the internet, and it looks like jacksonville would beat out the Rams for the #2 if the redskins win a game and the Jags do not. They could beat Tennessee at home , as they have once already on the road.

    I really doubt that Washington upsets the Cowboys this week, or beats the Giants on the road in Shanahan's swan song.
