The Redskins aren't in the greatest of shape right now, that much is obvious. That doesn't mean the season is over, especially in a division as unpredictable as the NFC East.
Right now, the Skins stand at 3-5 and are 2.5 games behind the first place New York Giants. With a win this week and losses by the Eagles and Cowboys, the Redskins would jump right back in to second place before their bye week.
With that said, the Redskins have a decent shot still, and there are some things the team must do to earn a much-needed playoff berth. Here, I will highlight some of the most important milestones needed to get to January.
