LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — The bad news for the Washington Redskins is that they find themselves at 3-6 for the second consecutive season after blowing a 27-14 second half lead to the Minnesota Vikings Thursday night.
Squandering double-digit leads after halftime has become a matter of routine for the Mike Shanahan led team of late. And if you ask Robert Griffin III about it, he’ll tell you “it just sucks.”
The good news (if there is any) for the Redskins is that they find themselves 3-6 — exactly where they were a season ago before rattling off seven straight wins to win their first division title since 1999.
As the team departs for a mini bye week, many players will be thinking back to that time and hoping to return to Redskins Park with a way to produce an encore.
“If anybody needs something to believe in, they can look at last year,” Griffin said. “If there’s guys in that locker room that need something to believe in they can look at last year and see what we did. I think everybody believes.”
Washington will next face the Eagles on Nov. 17 in Philadelphia.
