THEY HAVE to win this game. Or they're doomed. Getting sick of hearing and reading that? Get used to it. Whether it's phrased that simply, or expanded with a slew of descriptive words, it is the lot of a playoff hopeful team that began its season with three losses in its first four games, two against division opponents. A third loss tonight against the Giants, in a division already so banged up and so mediocre that it accentuates the importance of these matchups, would reduce that hope to a prayer, or even despair.

The latest episode of the Washington Redskins drama could be called "Let's Make a Deal. " When last we checked on ongoing soap opera in the nation's capital, coach Mike Shanahan had shut down gold-plated superstar quarterback Robert Griffin III (a.k.a. RG3) for the season and replaced him with tin-plated no-nickname signal-caller Kirk Cousins. On Friday, Shanahan revealed his master plan to a D.C. radio station: He's going to use the three games left in the season to showcase Cousins, turn him into trade gold, and transform the 2012 fourth-round pick into a 2014 first-rounder.

THE EAGLES' defense is trending so terribly, that league-leading snap count seems to have taken a huge toll on a group that was pretty decent the first half of the season. Now the Birds are going to play without Bennie Logan and probably without Byron Maxwell, against a potent team looking to clinch the NFC East. Washington winning the division would be perfect because when the season started, that was the one team I was confident had no shot. The Redskins still haven't beaten a team with a winning record.

REDSKINS cornerback DeAngelo Hall knew who to call Sunday night, just hours after he had suffered a season-ending Achilles' injury against the Eagles: Lakers star Kobe Bryant. "He was probably the most notable guy that I remember having an Achilles' injury and coming back," said Hall, who suffered a torn left Achilles' in the third quarter. "He said the same thing our trainers have. Just be patient with it. It's going to feel like you can push. It's going to feel like you can do some things.

ASHBURN, Va. - For better or worse, Kirk Cousins is the Washington Redskins quarterback for the near future. Whether that is better or worse for the Eagles Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field depends on who you ask. It became the hottest debate among Washington football fans last week when Robert Griffin III exited in the first quarter of a game against Jacksonville on Sunday with a dislocated left ankle. Cousins made an auspicious entrance by throwing his first pass for a 20-yard touchdown.

ON A COUPLE of different occasions this offseason, Howie Roseman has said that a looming spike in demand for quarterbacks factored into the Eagles' conversations as they decided whether to pay the price the Browns were asking in exchange for the No. 2 pick, which the Eagles needed to draft the quarterback they desired. The line of argument goes something like this: In addition to the usual uncertainty that a handful of teams face at quarterback, a slew of longtime fixtures at the position are in the stage of their careers where any season could be their last.

EAST LANSING, Mich. - Michigan State collected two trophies and a spot in the first Big Ten championship game in one afternoon. Kirk Cousins threw for 273 yards and three touchdowns in just over a half, leading the 12th-ranked Spartans to a 55-3 victory over Indiana on Saturday. A few minutes after the game concluded, Michigan finished off a victory over Nebraska, locking the Spartans into the first Big Ten championship game. Michigan State (9-2, 6-1 Big Ten) is in the title game because of its 28-14 win over Michigan on Oct. 15. MSU earned the Old Brass Spittoon for beating the Hoosiers, who finished 1-10 overall and 0-7 in the conference.

TAMPA, Fla. - Down a touchdown to Georgia with less than 2 minutes remaining and a long way to go, Kirk Cousins found a way to give Michigan State a parting gift. A cornerstone of coach Mark Dantonio's rebuilding project, Cousins led a late rally in the fourth quarter and Dan Conroy kicked a 28-yard field goal in the third overtime to lift the 12th-ranked Spartans over the No. 18 Bulldogs, 33-30, yesterday in the Outback Bowl. Michigan State (11-3) ended a five-game bowl losing streak with its first postseason win since beating Fresno State in the 2001 Silicon Valley Bowl.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 17 of the 2015 season. Watch 'em roll Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB, Jets at Bills. The Jets have a playoff berth at stake, while the Bills have only Rex Ryan's ego on the line. That's never kept opposing teams from trouncing him, though; so look for Fitzpatrick to keep feeding the ball to his consistently productive receivers. Tim Hightower, RB, Saints at Falcons. Hightower has been a late-season gem for the Saints and his fantasy owners, and he's coming off his best game since . . . well . . . ever.

It wasn't the cornerbacks' fault. There was plenty with which to take issue, looking at the Eagles' defensive effort in Saturday night's 38-24, playoff-hope-crushing loss to the Washington Redskins, but the main thing many observers worried about going into the game didn't happen. As was feared, Byron Maxwell, the Eagles' $63 million corner, couldn't play with a sprain in his SC joint, where the collarbone connects to the sternum. E.J. Biggers took Maxwell's place in the base defense, with Biggers moving inside in nickel and dime packages and Jaylen Watkins coming in on the outside.

The season that came to a crashing halt on Saturday night against Washington did so for a box full of reasons, and there is plenty of blame to go around. Pick your favorite villain. But any team with a defense that allows this many points down the stretch run of a season isn't going anywhere at all, and that's as big a reason as any why the Eagles didn't. As they drift into the offseason, with Chip Kelly's supposedly innovative offense in tatters, the 38-24 loss to the Redskins was another game in which the defense didn't do its part, either.

The list of indignities and insults suffered by the Philadelphia Eagles this season, and by extension their faithful supporters, is not a brief one. Chip Kelly's strategy for taking the league by storm as both coach and general manager became a tornado that reversed its course and leveled a 10-6 team that appeared to be on the verge of achieving something greater. Free-agent signings were busts. Trades were unproductive. Injuries piled up. Peevish personnel decisions aimed at players who bucked the system failed miserably.

IT'S TIME. Time for Sam Bradford to stand up and be counted. Time for him to make Eagles Nation finally fall in love with him. Time for him to make Chip Kelly look like a GM genius instead of the village idiot. Time for him to strap Kelly's underperforming team onto his back and carry it across the finish line. Time for him to have the game of his life against the Redskins on Saturday night and keep the Eagles' playoff hopes alive. Time for him to be great. Kelly certainly can't count on a defense that has given up 178 points in the last five games to rise up and stifle red-hot Kirk Cousins and the Redskins offense, particularly if nose tackle Bennie Logan (calf)

ERIC ROWE said he felt "normal" Wednesday, the best news Eagles fans have gotten as their team faces a do-or-die game Saturday against NFC East rival Washington. Rowe, the rookie corner who has shown steady progress since previous starter Nolan Carroll went down with a broken fibula on Thanksgiving, was cleared by an independent neurologist Wednesday morning, then returned to NovaCare, where he was a full practice participant. The other starting corner, Byron Maxwell, did not practice Wednesday and is a longshot to play after suffering an SC joint sprain, where his collarbone attaches to his sternum, in last Sunday night's loss to Arizona.

Seattle clinched a playoff spot on Sunday, while Carolina continued its unlikely march toward perfection. Along the way, their quarterbacks are carrying countless fantasy teams to the promised land by playing at a consistently - even ridiculously - high level. In my leagues, three-fourths of the teams that advanced to this weekend's championship games are led by either Newton or Wilson. I suspect those two are common denominators in the vast majority of fantasy leagues, along with Antonio Brown and two receivers who are rapidly shedding the "underachiever" label that has followed them throughout their careers: Doug Baldwin and Ted Ginn.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 12 of the 2015 season. Watch 'em roll Kirk Cousins, QB, Redskins vs. Giants. Cousins and his teammates predictably struggled against the mighty Panthers defense, but they'll enjoy some home cooking this weekend with the generous Giants secondary visiting. With a healthy DeSean Jackson back in the fold, Cousins should take advantage of this delicious matchup. T.J. Yeldon, RB, Jaguars vs. Chargers. Only Detroit has coughed up more scores to opposing rushers than this week's visitors, so look for Yeldon to rack up the yards as well as his third TD of the season.
