In most years, any NFL club that begins the season 4-7 would likely be out of postseason contention.
But as well all know, 2020 is not any other year. With just four wins in their first 11 games, the Washington Football Team will enter their Week 13 contest behind the first-place Giants in the NFC East by just a single game after New York upset the Seahawks.
Besides the division race, Washington has also worked itself into the conversation for the seventh and final Wild Card spot in the NFC.
