One has to wonder how the 5-8 Redskins have been officially eliminated from the playoffs but the 4-9 Cowboys are not? Seriously. How does this work?
Chris Berman can bestow a bye to the Cowboys and Bills, if he so chooses.

According to the USA today, nine teams are out: Washington, Dallas, Detroit, Minnesota, Carolina, Buffalo, Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Denver.

Houston, Tennessee, and Arizona are close to elimination.
CNN/SI is missing the Cowboys from that list.
Well, I never like SI, so maybe it is wishful thinking on their part.
The Cowboys get the "America's Team" exemption, duh.
Come on Bob - get with the program. Sure, technically the Cowboys are eliminated, but let's face it - they should be in the playoffs!

Because they are so talented and all. :)
They had 9 teams were eliminated in the paper, but only listed 8. Of course, they left off the Cowgirls. I was scratching my head too, but then did the math. Sports writers can't do the math!
