But Robert Griffin III and Co. swept their way to the NFC East crown by beating the Cowboys for the second time in Week 17. The division looks wide open again with Cowboys, ‘Skins and Eagles all saddled with three losses but still within a half-game of each other. The Redskins didn’t get their first W until Week 4 then went on bye. But winning in Dallas on Sunday night just might give them sole possession of first place by Monday morning.

USA TODAY Sports’ Week 6 NFL predictions
Alonso will miss at least Seattle’s trip to Dallas, and his departure may have signalled the last post for the Sounders’ playoff challenge, even though an inch here or there might have made the difference on the night. Luck didn’t break the Sounders’ way though and Seattle have lost three in a row for the first time since 2010. Portland meanwhile were celebrating a win that may not have been enough to win them the Cascadia Cup (Sunday’s result means Vancouver take that trophy), but right now their eyes are on bigger prizes. The subs were the saving grace for the USA On one level it’s understandable that the USA’s performance against Jamaica should have been so lackluster. With qualification already assured and a party atmosphere prevailing at Sporting Park for the last home game in competition before the World Cup, it’s possible to see why it could be easy for the team to lose focus in a game whose scoreline wouldn’t affect the USA’s destiny. But on another level the level Jurgen Klinsmann apparently occupies qualification is one stage of a progressive arc, not a destiny in itself, and the games against Jamaica and Panama actually offered an additional opportunity to hone the squad that will eventually represent the US in Brazil. So on an individual level at least you might have expected a sense of urgency looking at previous squads and players coming into form at just the right time, there are between 40 and 50 players with realistic chances of challenging for places, and a few current incumbents, in defense in particular, who won’t exactly be resting easy in the knowledge their place is assured. Yet until the second half nobody really seized the chance to make any sort of compelling case for themselves. Making his first start Aron Johannsson looked like redundancy alongside Jozy Altidore and despite some neat first touches to create shooting chances, didn’t do much with those chances. Mix Diskerud looked more comfortable in the late reshuffle from 4-4-2 to 4-2-3-1 that pushed him forward, but for much of the game he and Jones looked on different pages. As it was, an unfamiliar Jamaican side, seeing out their own disappointing campaign by blooding new talent like Colorado’s Deshorn Brown up front, didn’t have quite the cohesion to turn their high press into a potent threat, and the US weren’t unduly tested, but the subs on the US bench were doubtless treated to a running monologue of dissatisfaction from their coach as sloppy passes, sluggish movement and indifferent finishing began to mount up.
