    LOVERRO: Winless Redskins not passing the smell test

    The Washington Redskins face the Raiders next Sunday at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, a dump of a stadium that is falling apart and literally stinks, with sewage coming out of the faucets last week after a rainstorm during an Athletics game.

    Redskins: 5 reasons they will — or won't — repeat as NFC East champs

  • Washington's Robert Griffin III was knocked out of Sunday's playoff loss after his right leg got stuck in the turf when he tried to handle a bad snap.

    No shortage of fear, anxiety surrounding RG3's prognosis

    The Washington Redskins' 2013 offseason could have been a relatively tranquil period by the franchise's standards. They seemed positioned to build on their NFC East division championship without the drama or tumult that has tainted past years.

    Redskins' path to the playoffs

    At 7-6, the Redskins are favorably positioned in the NFC playoff race, but they don't yet control their own postseason fate. It's not far off; a win Sunday at the Cleveland Browns and either a loss by the New York Giants to the Atlanta Falcons or a loss by the Chicago Bears against the Green Bay Packers gives Washington control.
