NFL playoff picture: Updated AFC, NFC standings for Week 13
As the NFL's playoff picture begins to come into focus, here are the updated AFC and NFC standings through Sunday of Week 13.Here is an updated look at what each conference field would look like now, what teams are still in contention and what teams should already be thinking about the offseason.
We know it's a running gag, but it's almost depressing how much apathy Washington Redskins fans have shown toward their home team. It's understandable, too; the nation's capital has seen three professional sports champions in the past 18 months and could see a fourth by June (the Capitals have the NHL's best record). No one in D.C. has time for the team with an offensive nickname.
Even for today's divisional rivalry game against the Philadelphia Eagles, a game that could decide the fate of the NFC East, fans just couldn't be bothered to turn up at FedEx Field.
In fact, this game might just mark a new low.
Potential coaching candidates are reportedly not interested in Redskins job
Just four games stand between the Washington Redskins and the start of their search for a new head coach, but a new report from Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer paints a harsh light on what the Redskins might encounter when they eventually get out on the road and start hosting interviews. According to Breer, some of the potential head coaching candidates are not certain that they can function in Washington DC under the current management, as the uncertainty and turmoil surrounding the top job have been anything but sound over the years.
This is crazy. 15 minutes before the game and it’s pretty much all— Martin Frank (@Mfranknfl) fans in the stands (lots of empty seats too).
Look at that. Half the seats are empty. Most of the rest are green and white.
The most surreal moment came when the home team - emphasis on home team - came out for pregame introductions and were showered with boos by fans that were not their own.
We stress that this is not Lincoln Financial Field you're looking at.

Although, granted, given the way the 3-10 Redskins have played for much of the season, some of those boos may have come from their own fans too.
