Capsules of the 16 NFC teams entering NFL free agency, which begins Tuesday:
Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo did not play in his team's season finale against the New York Giants on Sunday at MetLife Stadium.
What would have been a dramatic recovery under a backup quarterback instead became the latest in a long string of defeats for the Redskins on Sunday, with Kirk Cousins' conversion pass broken up and Washington falling to Atlanta, 27-26, for its sixth consecutive loss.
Occasionally, Perry Riley will head home after a day at Redskins Park and turn on his television, looking to have something sports-related on in the background. Not Wednesday. "History Channel, Discovery Channel," Riley said. "I tried to stay away from SportsCenter or NFL Network. It's not looking too good for us on those channels."
Cousins completed 7 of 16 passes for 59 yards, with his longest pass a 15-yard completion to wide receiver Joshua Morgan on his second attempt. He fumbled two plays later when he was sacked by Chiefs outside linebacker Frank Zombo, losing 15 yards as the Redskins recovered.
Five questions Redskins beat writer Zac Boyer has heading into Washington's Monday night game against the San Francisco 49ers.
The Washington Redskins were only whistled for four penalties in Sunday's crippling 24-16 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. But offensive lineman Trent Williams accused umpire Roy Ellison of cursing him late in the first half.
Redskins beat reporter Zac Boyer poses five questions heading into Sunday's game against San Diego
The veteran receiver was among several cuts by the team Monday. He was hindered through most of training camp by a hamstring injury. He caught two passes for 33 yards in preseason games.
Griffin took part in the first three of the team's 10 periods of practice, as he did during the first three practices. But he did some different drills Monday.
Griffin does not want to be a running back. He wants to be an elite passer. But as Shanahan so forcefully explained to reporters Wednesday, the zone read will help him to achieve that goal.
Overall, coach Mike Shanahan lived up to his word. The Redskins mostly remained idle, limited by having only $3 million or so of salary cap space because of their $18 million cap penalty.
As seven NFL head coaches lost their jobs Monday, Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan implied offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, his son, wouldn't agree to interview requests until after Washington's playoff run ends.
A quick recap of the Redskins' 27-20 victory over the Eagles.
Robert Griffin III sat at his locker, still wearing his gold game pants, and tried to piece together the NFL's complex playoff puzzle. Next to him, Rex Grossman slid a bright blue tie around his neck. Griffin and Grossman wondered aloud whether the Washington Redskins' heart-stopping 27-20 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday was enough to qualify them for the playoffs.
"Most of the people on this team don't really let it get to us or bother us anyway," said wide receiver Joshua Morgan. "We try to stay together as a team, stick together as a unit regardless. I mean, we're always just trying to focus on practice. You never bring stuff from outside the locker room into the locker room, and you never take stuff from work home. I mean, you've got to separate the two."
But while Morgan was frustrated after the game – he told the Times he was asked not to speak to reporters – he may have a chance to play again soon.
