Santana Moss excited by Redskins playoff push

USA TODAY Sports

With three games to go, the veteran wideout is happy to be on the other side of the playoff conversation.

The Washington Redskins are playing meaningful games in December, and few are happier than wide receiver Santana Moss. The veteran wideout has been a vocal leader for the Redskins, but he hasn't had much to play for in the second halves of seasons during his tenure in Washington. Moss has been with the Redskins since 2005, and the team has made only one postseason appearance in that time -- the 2006 run under Joe Gibbs.

Since then, the Skins have rarely entertained postseason thoughts past the month of October, but Robert Griffin III has injected new life into the franchise. Moss addressed the excitement of playing for contention with Brian Tinsman of Redskins.com:

"We have the opportunity and just need to do something with it," Moss said. "If we can continue to play together, regardless of who is up and who is down, I think we can come up with the wins.

"I'm proud to be on the other side of the playoff conversation for a change."

Washington heads to Cleveland this Sunday for a Week 15 matchup against the Browns. The Redskins are just one game back of the Giants in the NFC East, and with the Bears stumbling, there's also now sudden hope of a potential Wild Card spot opening up. Moss said that he's been "waiting for this moment" after the huge overtime win against the Ravens, and with three weeks to go, his team has a great chance to seize the postseason opportunity.
