The Washington Times - December 29, 2013, 10:37AM

A woeful season for the Washington Redskins will end on Sunday when they hit the road to face the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium in their final game.

The Redskins have not won a game since Nov. 3, when they defeated the San Diego Chargers in overtime, and have not lost their final eight games of the season since 1960. The Giants haven’t fared much better; after losing their first six games, they won their next four, but have since lost three of five.

Washington has not defeated a division opponent this season and is trying to avoid losing each game to an NFC East team for the first time since 2009.
