Four Game Win Streak: Redskins fans have to be thrilled not only with the four game win streak, but who those four wins have come against. They have beaten the four teams that the Redskins and their fans most want to see them beat. Three division rivals in the Eagles, Cowboys and Giants followed by yesterday's win over the Ravens. Playing the Browns will be a change but once again its a must win Sunday in the playoff race. The Giants and Seahawks didn't help but the Bears did and are suddenly in reach.

Are you worried about a letdown against the Browns?

Mike Shanahan impressed with Richard Crawford’s performance
"What Richard did was he took the ball, tried to get upfield and made some people miss. If you can get 10 yards on a punt return, you’re doing great.

The last one was the difference in the game."

In 2010 and 2011 they lost to the Vikings at home. The 1-7 Dolphins handled them last year. In ’09 the Lions broke a 19-game losing streak at their expense. The year before that, the 0-4 Rams got their first win, and one of two that season, against Washington.

"I just jumped in. I didn’t have a sword, but that just shows my heroism," joked the rookie running back. "I’m a tough guy. I don’t need a sword to go into a sword fight. I was kicking butt. It was an epic battle and I’m glad I was part of it. It’s going down in history."

Redskins fan gives himself an Indian name, gets DeAngelo Hall’s helmet
Most of the team had left the field and the frenzy at the tunnel had died down, when I see DeAngelo Hall walking towards the tunnel. I just give him a standing ovation and tell him what a great game he had. He simply looked up at me and tossed me his helmet.
