The article focuses on the football team Washington Redskins. Few teams are as ready for the playoffs. The defensive line has been generating a pass rush without the help of linebackers or defensive backs. DT Cornelius Griffin is getting a strong push, and RE Phillip Daniels has been a force. However, depth at cornerback is a major concern. Shawn Springs is hampered by a groin injury, Carlos Rogers, suffering from torn biceps, is out. Clinton Portis is as close to fresh as a back can be at this time of the season, but QB Mark Brunell needs to be more accurate than he was against the Philadelphia Eagles.
