Week 17 NFL Power Rankings: The Broncos Are Starting To Slide

Peyton Manning

27. Washington Redskins (LW: 30)

Throughout what has been an absolutely dreadful season, including three different quarterbacks starting at least four games, the Washington Redskins finally found a small bright spot by eliminating their division rivals from Philadelphia. In what was a showcase of Washington’s big-play ability, the game begged the question to be asked — where was this all season? The only potential mistake worse than trying to piece together the flaws in their 2014 campaign would be how to accurately evaluate the team going into next year, especially based on their last performance. Is Robert Griffin III actually finishing in Washington, D.C.? Did Week 16’s upset victory over the Eagles change anything? Maybe a few more answers will come when Washington hosts the 11-4 Cowboys to close out the season.
