Bye week kick­off

The Washington Post Sunday - - WASHINGTONPOST.COM/SPORTS -

The Red­skins will have next week off and ob­vi­ously would like to go into their bye with pos­i­tive vibes. A win will pull the team within a game of .500, which is cru­cial as Gru­den & Co. fight to re­main rel­e­vant in the NFC East. A vic­tory also is much-needed be­cause the group re­turns from the bye with a road game at New England, and that matchup doesn’t carry a high prob­a­bil­ity for a Wash­ing­ton win. A loss en­ter­ing the bye will not bode well for the Red­skins. Gru­den will come un­der greater scru­tiny, and an­other poor per­for­mance by Cousins will in­ten­sify spec­u­la­tion over how much longer the fourth-year vet­eran will get to keep his job.
