Heading into Sunday, the Redskins are just 1-8 with a minus-111 point differential -- the third-worst rate in the league. Washington ranks 29th and 24th in offensive and defensive efficiency, according to Football Outsiders. FedEx Field, for another year, has been invaded by opposing fans.

LOVERRO: Redskins missed lesson in Nationals' handling of Strasburg

There is no shortage of material to contrast the way the Nationals and the Redskins do business -- in case you missed the World Series trophy the Nationals held high during their celebration parade on Saturday -- but nothing illustrates the difference between the two organizations more starkly than the treatment of their two star players, Strasburg and Williams.

The Washington Redskins started their first-round draft pick for the first time Sunday, but only out of necessity, with Case Keenum sidelined with a concussion. They continued to keep Haskins on a short leash, and the rookie was unable to change the Redskins' fortunes on offense in a loss to the Buffalo Bills.
