Key Takeaways

  • This weekend’s New England/Toronto match up either pull the Arrows back into the fight or knocked well off the pace.
  • The top three will continue jockeying for position deep into the season.
  • NOLA has a strong platform to rejoin the chase with two games against inferior competition (though on the road) and two games against teams in playoff position.
  • DC has little path into the playoffs just five weeks into the year.
