    The 5-2 Washington Redskins are going into their bye week feeling great about their position within the division, as well as the NFC. Thought for dead going into the 2015-16 season, not many people gave the Redskins much hope or thought they would be headed towards a spot in the playoffs. With wins over the Giants and Eagles already they have a leg-up when it comes to tiebreakers if it comes to that. The coaching staff and ownership went back and forth with what to do at the QB position, eventually coming to the conclusion that RG3 was their best hope moving forward. So far he has completed on 65% of his passes, thrown for 1,682 yards, 14 TD's and only 4 INT's. Throw in the fact that he has rushed for 252 yards and 3 touchdowns, it's hard to argue that he isn't an MVP candidate and a shoe-in for Comeback Player of the Year. Alfred Morris has been the mainstay of this offense as he has 836 yards on 164 carries (5.1AVG) and 7 TD's. The Redskins have used multiple trades to improve this team for now and for the future, they've added a huge piece at corner in Aqib Talib and acquired an extra 1st Round pick in 2016 (Raiders). With games still left against the Patriots (4-1), Saints (3-3), Bears (5-1), Bills (4-2), they only have those 4 left against teams with .500 or better records. 5-4 should be achievable the rest of the way and their first playoff berth since 2012 should be in the cards.
