Chasing the Metros I would think that the Mestroscum beating Dallas would be even worse news for New England, as even if they win the rest of their games and finish with 38 points, they still could finish behind NY/NJ, if the scum pick up some points in their other games. At least DC can control its own fate by winning all four (however unlikely this is). New England will only get in if another team falters. Also, maybe the target actually becomes Chicago and/or KC now that Metroscum have taken over first place (!!) in the East.
