The Washington Redskins were hoping for a holiday miracle as they traveled to Nashville three days before Christmas. That’s because, after losing four out of five games, the Redskins needed to win and — and get help from others ahead of them in the standings — just to back into a playoff berth. And while no one likes to see opposing players get injured, Washington had to feel encouraged after knocking Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota out of the game.
But much like everything else that’s gone on during the second half of the season, the Redskins were unable to take advantage of the situation and ultimately saw their slim postseason dreams dashed by below average back-up Blaine Gabbert. While a weekend in the Music City is always enjoyable. These are three hours that most ‘Skins fans would love to get back.
