Nine games into the 2012 season, the Redskins appeared dead in the water, sitting at 3-6 and the playoffs a near impossibility.
Entering the bye week, it looked like the team had little to play for, trailing the defending Super Bowl Champion New York Giants by three games in the division. As the temperatures began to drop in the DMV, Washington appeared destined for another chilly winter without playoff football.
Fast-forward seven game, and the Redskins had surged to their first division crown since 1999 in front of a title-hungry, sellout crowd at FedExField. The rest is history: the team’s first NFC East title and home playoff game in 13 years.
The remarkable run the team endured at the end of the regular-season was one of the greatest in history and will not be forgotten for quite some time. A division title, however, is now in the back of the players minds as they focus on fulfilling next year’s goal of a fourth Super Bowl in team history.
Redskins fans know that continued success isn’t a guarantee. It took 13 years to see the team they love play in a home playoff game. However, history shows that long droughts between division titles can lead to greater success in seasons that follow.
