Washington Redskins Week 16 NFL Power Rankings Roundup

Three weeks ago, we were amazed that the Washington Redskins were heading to the month of December with something left play for: the playoffs.

Now, we’re talking about the Redskins having something even greater to play for this December: an NFC East Division Championship.

These are the Redskins we’re used to seeing. Ever since their playoff run in 2012 fueled by the electrifying rookie-version of Robert Griffin III, it’s been heartache after heartache waiting for that team to return. Now led by a different quarterback from the same draft class, Kirk Cousins, Washington seems poised for another opportunity to make some noise in the playoffs.

As they prepare for the Philadelphia Eagles, check where the Redskins have climbed in the weekly NFL Power Rankings.

As head coach Jay Gruden put it, when you lose by 28 points, there’s a much larger problem than a couple of blown. To say that the referees have it out for the team because of the name is shedding light on the wrong topic, and reopens a discussion that the franchise has been working hard to put away.

Washington Redskins Week 10 Power Rankings Roundup

After taking a tough ‘L’ at the hands of the New England Patriots, the Washington Redskins didn’t do themselves any favors in their media perception.

Jay Gruden’s team took a hit in the weekly power rankings, and the national media also took it as an opportunity to locate the main problem with this team. There isn’t a consensus, but it does show that while the Redskins have looked strong at times this season, they are still a below-average team with plenty of room for improvement.
