There are 15 teams that can still win the Super Bowl this year and the folks in Las Vegas are saying that the Redskins have a better chance than all but seven of them. They are the No. 5 pick among teams in the NFC.

Washington is a 25-1 shot to win the Super Bowl in New Orleans. Those are the same odds as those given to the Baltimore Ravens.

The Broncos and Patriots are the co-favorites to win it all at 7-2. Next come the Falcons and Packers at 6-1 and the Texans and 49ers at 7-1. The Seahawks are the only team at 8-1 and then the odds jump to 25-1 for the next teams, the Ravens and Redskins.

The Cowboys, who face the Redskins for the NFC East title this Sunday at FedEx Field, are 50-1. The Redskins’ other NFC East foe that still has a chance is the Giants and they there at 100-1 along with the Vikings.

The Redskins are one of two teams that are still alive that faced triple digit odds going into the season. Minnesota and Washington were both 100-1 when the season started in September.
