The Redskins are just outside the NFC playoff picture, but Washington will need to win on the road this week if they want to keep pace.

After back-to-back close wins at home, the Washington Redskins will go on the road this week to face the Cleveland Browns.

At 7-6, the Redskins are a game out of the NFC playoff picture. Washington also trails the New York Giants by one game in the NFC East. With Dallas and Minnesota also 7-6, the Redskins will need a win this week to avoid falling behind. Washington will travel to Cleveland to face a 5-8 Browns team. While Cleveland is out of the playoff picture, the Browns have been playing well lately. Cleveland has won three straight games and is 4-3 at home this season.
