The Daily Twitter will be posted at the beginning of every day (at midnight in Washington, DC). The goal is to give readers a handy spot to check the Redskins beat writers & bloggers, and national sports journalists to keep up on the latest news about the Redskins, the NFL, and sports in general.

Thursday night's game serves as clear reminder that Chiefs-Pats and Rams-Saints rematches in conference title games are far from guaranteed https://t.co/5hUwWzRf2j— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) November 30, 2018
Still think it would take a miracle for Rams and Saints not to meet again to decide the Super Bowl participant. But Rams in driver's seat for top seed again.— Scott Kacsmar (@FO_ScottKacsmar) November 30, 2018
Teams that score fewer than 14 points and lose the turnover battle have won 4.2% of games since 1970. https://t.co/jDL06rjHQI— Scott Kacsmar (@FO_ScottKacsmar) November 30, 2018
As much as folks love games like Rams/Chiefs, it's also fun to watch good defense. Those Dallas LBs are no joke— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) November 30, 2018
One of the takeaways from tonight is the story of Dallas LB Jaylon Smith, whose draft stock plummeted after the major knee injury in the 2015 ND bowl game. Remember when the Cowboys got ripped for picking him 34th overall with so many needs? He was great tonight.— Peter King (@peter_king) November 30, 2018
Eagles playoff hopes take a hit with Cowboys' win over Saints, but they're not done https://t.co/Em296VAo9e— Jimmy Kempski (@JimmyKempski) November 30, 2018
If the #Redskins beat the #Eagles, the #Cowboys will still be in first place in the NFC East based on record vs common opponents.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) November 30, 2018
The split head-to-head. They would have the same division record. Currently Washington is 3-4 vs common opponents where Dallas is 4-3.
Skins are cooked on common opponent tiebreaker. They’re already done with uncommon opponents. Skins 2-0, cowboys 1-1. So if they finish tied overall, Dallas automatically will be better vs common opponents— Dan Steinberg (@dcsportsbog) November 30, 2018
#Redskins have 3 division games left counting Monday. #Cowboys have two.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) November 30, 2018
All of each team's remaining games would fall under the "common opponents" designation as well.
WAS vs TEN, JAX, PHI (2), NYG
DAL vs TB, IND, NYG, PHI
Amari Cooper told me he isn’t the reason for the #Cowboys’ turnaround. But since he’s been in DAL, all he’s seen is a team capable of beating anyone.— Kimberley A. Martin (@ByKimberleyA) November 30, 2018
With tonight’s impressive victory over the #Saints, they’ve now won four straight. pic.twitter.com/IpaWd3CbP3
Monday night is a very, very important point in Jay Gruden's career.— Burgundy Blog (@BurgundyBlog) November 30, 2018
These officials have been atrocious tonight.— Blogging The Boys (@BloggingTheBoys) November 30, 2018
The NFL keeps missing helmet to helmet hits. (Jordan Reed among them). Yet went out of their way to call questionable roughing penalties for first month.— John Keim (@john_keim) November 30, 2018
How weird is it that Colt McCoy looked better at times vs. the Cowboys defense than Drew Brees has so far tonight?— Daniel Shiferaw (@dshif) November 30, 2018

Jamison Crowder said he’s been dealing with torn ligaments in his ankle. While surgery was an option, they can also heal on their own, which is what he opted to do.— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) November 29, 2018
If you're a #Redskins fan your greatest hope has been that Jon Gruden might pluck his longtime crony & league-worst exec Bruce Allen away to Las Vegas #Raiders.— Evan Silva (@evansilva) November 29, 2018
But this week's confirmation that Allen is still a string-pulling puppeteer in DC suggests Allen ain't going anywhere.
Doug Williams—a good man—is getting killed nationally for comments about Foster to Doc Walker. He phrased some points clumsily but the self-righteousness is out of control, even for Twitter.— Burgundy Blog (@BurgundyBlog) November 30, 2018
Doug Williams put his foot in his mouth a bit on Thursday when discussing the Reuben Foster claim https://t.co/vNMkYInp0C— Riggo's Rag (@RiggosRag) November 29, 2018
"This was a group decision" ... "This wasn't a group decision."— Paul Conner (@P_ConnerJr) November 29, 2018
"No one in my room had a thumbs down"..... "Many didn't agree with waiver claim."
"Doug's decision"...... "Bruce's decision."
"We talked to former teammates" ..... "They didn't talk to us"
Again, I believe in innocent until proven guilt and he needs to be proven guilty first. I hope he gets cleared, exonerated, etc, etc.— Paul Conner (@P_ConnerJr) November 29, 2018
But #Redskins have taken a tricky PR situation and easily made it worse. It should surprise no one.
Listening to Doug Williams today if you know him like many of us do out here at #Redskins Park it's obvious that he really wants to do right by Reuben Foster and get the young man some much needed help to turn his life around. Of course he has to be on the team to get that.— Lake Lewis Jr (@LakeLewis) November 29, 2018
I sat down and talked with Trent Williams for nearly 20 minutes. We recorded it. Here it is. https://t.co/qMUCPAImVb— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) November 29, 2018
The Redskins are 13-17 all-time, including the playoffs, against defending Super Bowl champions. They still get two cracks at the Eagles this winter. Some good front pages in here https://t.co/K5Rpmrgg5x pic.twitter.com/hUWfshz7fJ— Dan Steinberg (@dcsportsbog) November 29, 2018
The Redskins defensive line should get a boost down the stretch from rookie fifth-round pick Tim Settle. If Matt Ioannidis can't play because of a shin injury, Settle will help. Redskins coach Jay Gruden said "Settle has come the furthest in my opinion.... https://t.co/lSVeL7s2dD— John Keim (@john_keim) November 29, 2018
Don’t see Peterson either. This is essentially a Wednesday practice cause of MNF so they may be back to giving him an extra day.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) November 29, 2018
Jamison Crowder says the pain is much less and will see how the next few days go to determine if he’s in for MNF @NBCSRedskins— Julie Donaldson (@JDonaldsonNBCS) November 29, 2018
Jamison Crowder running a hard cut. Looks quick. But does Not seem like he felt good after it was over. But he did run another route later; more straight line. pic.twitter.com/u7Byr0rqUK— John Keim (@john_keim) November 29, 2018
Gruden says Dunbar’s injury is really hard to judge. They have to trust the player to tell them how he feels. They need him to run full speed, which he can’t do right now.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) November 29, 2018
Gruden said Tim Settle is one of the Redskins’ most exciting prospects. He added the defensive tackle has come the furthest this year.— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) November 29, 2018
To clear up some confusion, #Redskins PR confirms Cassanova McKinzy is on IR.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) November 29, 2018
Reuben Foster went straight to the exempt list. This means the roster is at 52.
Allowing Yards After the Catch on defense can be a killer.— NFL Matchup on ESPN (@NFLMatchup) November 29, 2018

Cooley def breakdown: "It didn't go well for HaHa… I will be very interested to see if they continue to play him."— Burgundy Blog (@BurgundyBlog) November 29, 2018
If Thompson and Crowder return Monday, how much more confident are you in the #Redskins?— NBC Sports Redskins (@NBCSRedskins) November 29, 2018
