Surprised that Washington beat Dallas last night? Jay Gruden isn’t.
Gruden said after the game that while everyone outside Washington’s locker room may have expected Dallas to win, everyone inside Washington’s locker room fully expected to win.
“The whole country, except the 53 guys in here, and the coaches,” Gruden said. “We expected to win and we came out and played like it, played with confidence, and we got the win.”
The win improves Washington’s record to 3-5 and at least gives them some hope that they could still turn their season around. With the next two games coming against Minnesota and Tampa Bay, Washington has a real shot at being 5-5 by mid-November. Maybe no one else sees Washington turning this season around, but Gruden expects it.
