This season has been a far more fruitful one than the last for the Washington Redskins. It has also been more stressful--so many close calls and almost. But unlike last year, its become clear that, if nothing else, if you allow the Washington Redskins to hang around for long enough, they can pull off a win. While none of their wins have been impressive, it's clear that a new, winning mentality has settled over the organization.
A new franchise quarterback, a new head coach, and a new regime have done much to turn this organization around, from a team that hopes it can win, to an organization that knows it can win.
Things get no easier for the Washington Redskins this week, as Donovan McNabb and his team face off against Peyton Manning and his team, the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts have had a rocky start to their season; not quite looking like the all star aerial assault, a rash of injuries seems to have hurt the team. Still, this is Peyton Manning, and after not throwing a touchdown pass in week 5, you can count on him looking to take revenge with a dominating win at FedEx Field.
That said, all is not lost for the Redskins. There is a possibility they can win this game. There is also a chance they can make a statement; that they are a for real team, and that the NFC East will not be easily won by anyone.
Here are they keys to a Washington Redskins win, that's more doable than one would think.
