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.

My hand trembles with excitement as I write to tell you the unit was victorious over the posse of Cowboys. In fact, we walked away completely unscathed. Truly magnificent. There remains a chance our campaign lengthens, a marvelous thought. I love you.
Against the Colts, the Cowboys were handed their first shutout loss in 15 years: https://t.co/MfNbHznCS3— USA TODAY NFL (@usatodaynfl) December 16, 2018
“Piss poor”, “embarrassment”, “reality check” just a few adjectives #Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott used to describe the shutout. Added that it’s not who they are. After 3-5 start they took it on the chin and turned it around and will do the same after this one.— Jane Slater (@SlaterNFL) December 16, 2018
Eliminated today:— Andrew Siciliano (@AndrewSiciliano) December 16, 2018

DJ Swearinger- It feels great to finally get a win.— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) December 16, 2018
Josh Johnson walking through the locker room - “By any means, that’s what it takes.”— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) December 16, 2018
Crowder on his tipped catch - It’s definitely a momentum swing. It was a huge play— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) December 16, 2018
Three of the four NFC divisions now clinched with the Saints, Rams and Bears. Cowboys squandered their chance to clinch today.— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) December 16, 2018
Good for Josh Johnson. Far from a great thrower but dude is a fighter and survivor. Gave this team some juice last two weeks. https://t.co/G8uMYTgAKa— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) December 16, 2018
Josh Johnson lets out a huge roar as he leaves the field. Can only imagine waiting 7 years for that chance then getting it done.— michael phillips (@michaelpRTD) December 16, 2018
Josh Johnson outscored# the rest of the NFC east 16-0 today. Time for a 7 yr 120 millon contract Snyder make it happen— PFTCommenter (@PFTCommenter) December 16, 2018
Johnson finished 16 of 25 for 151 yards, 1 TD and 93.9 rating.— Rick Snider (@Snide_Remarks) December 16, 2018
Josh Johnson also quickly becomes one of the best stories in sports this year. Whatever happens. Told me last week he wanted to show the kids from his community that you have to be ready for any opportunity. #Redskins— Brian McNally (@bmcnally14) December 16, 2018
Redskins when scoring first: 7-0.— Jake Russell (@_JakeRussell) December 16, 2018
Redskins when opponents score first: 0-7.
Jay Gruden needed today. His defense dominated a bad offense and his offense did just enough to get by with a 4th string QB at the controls. Any win garnered by a QB two weeks after they were playing pickup hoops is impressive.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) December 16, 2018
Just when you say Jay Gruden cannot motivate, the Redskins show up with an energized victory. https://t.co/V1SHLqtmBp— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) December 16, 2018
Gruden to the podium.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) December 16, 2018
This is the happiest I’ve seen him in a month.
Gruden gives Crowder a lot of credit on the big play for finding a way to give himself a chance and concentrating through the play.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) December 16, 2018
#Redskins also didn't quit on Jay Gruden, which matters. God knows this team has issues. Injuries can't excuse everything. But if you're evaluating whether to blow out a staff...that has to be taken into account.— Brian McNally (@bmcnally14) December 16, 2018
That was Josh Johnson’s first career win as a starter (1-5). #Redskins— Tarik El-Bashir (@Tarik_ElBashir) December 16, 2018
Josh Johnson is 1-0 as the #Redskins starting quarterback.— Jake Russell (@_JakeRussell) December 16, 2018
Josh Johnson’s first-ever win as a starter. Jay Gruden’s first win in 2 seasons when trailing at halftime.— Hogs Haven (@HogsHaven) December 16, 2018
Nice job by No. 8 today against a very talented defense.
Josh Johnson told me - One thing I know about this league, you play four quarters.— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) December 16, 2018
“For me to go out there and not leave it all out on the field would be disrespectful.”— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) December 16, 2018
Johnson says he’s stuck with this so long that he has no choice but to play the way he does. Every opportunity could be his last.
I just showed this to Johnson. He said, “Sorry, but you don’t know how long I’ve been waiting for this.” https://t.co/REQhXWbc2k— Tarik El-Bashir (@Tarik_ElBashir) December 16, 2018
When the Redskins were winning their formula was simple: Win the turnover battle and control the clock. Well, they've already won time of possession....— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) December 16, 2018
#Redskins offense takes a lot of heat for rarely making adjustsments that work at halftime. Was not the case today. 6 drives netted 3 points in first half. 4 drives got 13 points in 2nd half. Moved ball at least 27 yards on all 4 drives.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) December 16, 2018
Adrian Peterson will end the day with a completely unimpressive 50 rushing yards on 19 carries. That said, he was marvelous on this final drive to get #Redskins into FG range.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) December 16, 2018
Game balls go to the following #Redskins today:— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) December 16, 2018
-Josh Johnson: No turnovers, 200 total yards.
-Ryan Kerrrigan: 2 sacks, 3 QB hits, TFL, FF.
-Jon Allen: 2 sacks, 3 TFL, 2 QB hits.
-Jamison Crowder: 33-yd game-turning reception.
-Fabian Moreau for INT to set up GW drive.
I can hear Hail to the Redskins being sung in the stands. Fans dont quit on the road— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) December 16, 2018

The upgrade from John Fox to Matt Nagy is absolutely as radical as the upgrade from Jeff Fisher to Sean McVay, and if you balk at that, you may not have been paying attention.— Doug Farrar (@NFL_DougFarrar) December 16, 2018
2018, man, I tell ya. That year right there is a year, man. pic.twitter.com/C3shMdPs0Z— Will Brinson (@WillBrinson) December 16, 2018
