As Washington Redskins receiver Santana Moss watched a weekend of football one thought ran through his mind. “I was ready to get back to work” he said. And there’s a lot of work that remains for the Redskins. But they return to play Dallas with a chance to end up in first place in the NFC East. It’s too early in the season to get caught up in the standings. But when you start 0-3 a two-game win streak which includes a win at Dallas would be meaningful. “It’s a huge game for us” Redskins rookie tight end Jordan Reed said. “Just to keep building our confidence.” The NFC East is hardly a daunting division these days with Dallas and Philadelphia tied for first at 2-3. The Eagles play at Tampa Bay on Sunday. “Real crazy” Redskins corner DeAngelo Hall said about the division. “In this league... to not have played good football at all and still have a chance to be talking about winning the division we have a lot to play for. We have a chance to seize the opportunity Sunday night.” Washington’s only win came before the bye week a 24-14 victory at the Oakland Raiders who were playing without starting quarterback Terrelle Pryor. The Redskins have not played anywhere near their level of performance during last season’s seven-game win streak. Their defense is ranked last in the NFL; their offense has scored 10 first-half points through three games.
