The best place to get quotes after a big Washington Redskins victory appears to be in the hallway heading towards the home team's locker room.
Sunday a couple of defensive linemen took the time while strolling down the hall following the 27-20 defeat of the Philadelphia Eagles to remind reporters who won the NFC East last season.
The Redskins won their fourth game in a row to move to 4-2, sliding just behind the 5-1 Dallas Cowboys. Washington's defensive line was the impetus behind Sunday's smothering victory, sacking Eagles rookie Carson Wentz five times and holding an opponent to fewer than 100 yards rushing for the first time this season.
Video evidence from CSN:
After two straight home losses to open the season, the Redskins were left for dead by most analysts. Four weeks later Jay Gruden's bunch clawed their way back into the fight.
The NFC East is often the most overrated division in professional sports. Not in 2016. The NFCE stands as the most competitive group as the only division boasting no teams under .500.
