The Washington Redskins are facing a pivotal challenge this Sunday when they host the Baltimore Ravens. Coming off of a huge one point win on Monday Night Football against the New York Giants, the Redskins have placed themselves back in the NFC Playoff picture this season. But they know that they cannot let up one bit, as they may have to win out in order to qualify for the postseason, meaning that they have to find a way to beat the Ravens in the Beltway Battle on Sunday afternoon.

Coach.
