They'll have a chance to change that this week when they play the Eagles, who are currently second in the division.

Redskins vs. Eagles Week 6 Storylines:
- More injuries: Tight end Jordan Reed is questionable for this Sunday after being diagnosed with a concussion from last week's game against the Ravens. This is Reed's sixth confirmed concussion since college, and he has yet to play all 16 games in a season with the Redskins. Rookie wide receiver Josh Doctson will miss another game, and two starters are out for Week 6 as well.
- Dashaun Phillips replaced: Kendall Fuller started playing cornerback after the first two games of the season while Dashaun Phillips was out with a hamstring injury. It looks like Phillips is healthy now, but Fuller has been playing well at his position. Gruden says the team is focused on playing the best player, and for now Fuller will continue to start.
- Crowder on special teams: Jamison Crowder is already averaging over 5 times as many yards on punt returns as he was last season. An 85-yard punt return touchdown last week against the Ravens earned him the title of NFC special teams player of the week. He credits his teammates for doing a great job blocking, and is definitely a player to be watching this week.
