Redskins are one victory away from partying like it’s 1999
While Josh Morgan, Santana Moss and the Redskins celebrate, Kurt Coleman and the Eagles hang their heads after a disappointing 4-11 season. Washington won 27-20 on Sunday in Philadelphia to inch closer to its first NFC East title since 1999.
Lance Moore and the New Orleans Saints’ offense soared to a 34-31 victory over the Dallas Cowboys in overtime Sunday in Arlington, Texas, damaging the Cowboys’ playoff potential in the penultimate week of the regular season.
Austin Pettis and the St. Louis Rams got out in front of Ahmad Black and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers early in Sunday’s game in Tampa, Fla. Pettis’ touchdown catch was 6 of the Rams’ 28 points in a 15-point victory.
Cincinnati upended Jonathan Dwyer and the Steelers on Sunday in Pittsburgh, putting the Bengals in the playoffs and leaving the Steelers out of this year’s Super Bowl tournament.
Alshon Jeffery and the Chicago Bears finally caught a break. They beat Greg Toler and the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday in Glendale, Ariz., to snap a three-game losing streak.
Kam Chancellor and the Seahawks rang Vernon Davis and the San Francisco 49ers’ bell Sunday in Seattle. The Seahawks clinched their spot in the Super Bowl tournament with a 42-13 rout of their NFC West leader.
Bengals, Colts: Playoffs

One year after putting together the NFL’s worst record, the Indianapolis Colts are headed to the playoffs.

Joining them Sunday were the Cincinnati Bengals, finishing out the AFC field.

Minnesota’s win at Houston prevented the Texans from earning home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. AFC South champ Houston still can get that by winning at Indianapolis in the season finale.

New England has won the AFC East, Denver the West. Baltimore clinched the North by beating the New York Giants.

Washington’s win at Philadelphia, combined with New Orleans overtime win at Dallas, means the Redskins can win the NFC East by beating the Cowboys next week.

Green Bay moved up to the No. 2 seed with Seattle’s victory over San Francisco, and a Packers’ win in their regular-season finale at Minnesota would give the NFC North champions a first-round bye.

On Saturday night, NFC South winner Atlanta won 31-18 at Detroit to clinch home-field advantage throughout the conference playoffs.
