THREE THINGS THAT NEED TO GO RIGHT ... 1 Joe Flacco continues to go deep. The Redskins will stack the box with eight players to force Flacco to beat them. The rookie quarterback has at least one touchdown pass of 30-plus yards in five of his past six games. 2 Defense delivers again. The Ravens have returned five interceptions for touchdowns this season (going 5-0 in those games). After not throwing an interception in the first eight games, Washington quarterback Jason Campbell has four interceptions in four games.

In the recent past, when the calendar flipped to December, fans of the Washington Redskins could look forward to the holidays but little else. The same can't be said this season as the team is in the thick of the playoff hunt. At 6-6, Washington is just one game behind the New York Giants in the NFC East and one game behind the Seattle Seahawks for the final berth in the NFC postseason and could take one step closer with a victory over the Ravens this Sunday at FedEx Field in Landover.

Injuries may have sapped the Ravens of starting linebackers Ray Lewis and Terrell Suggs for Sunday's contest against the Washington Redskins, but the Ravens will still feature free safety Ed Reed in their defensive backfield. And the Redskins are fully aware of the eight-time Pro Bowler's potential to wreak havoc at FedEx Field. “Ed Reed, he's the top of that defense,” Washington's exciting rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III said after Wednesday's practice. “With Ray Lewis being out, he is the leader of that defense.

Play of the week WR Randy Moss, Oakland vs. Dallas -- Redskins WR Santana Moss got behind the Cowboys' secondary twice for long touchdowns two weeks ago and then San Francisco's Brandon Lloyd had his way last week. Imagine what Randy Moss might do, especially after being kept scoreless last week in Philadelphia. Position analysis Quarterbacks Starting nod -- Carson Palmer, Cincinnati vs. Houston. Even the Texans' extra week to prepare won't stop Palmer, who has eight touchdown passes and two interceptions in the Bengals' 3-0 start.

The Ravens proved that they still have one of the more formidable rush defenses in the NFL, suffocating the Washington Redskins by holding them to 25 yards on 14 carries in the Ravens' 23-3 win Saturday night. Defending the pass, however, might be a different matter. The Ravens surrendered 365 passing yards to the Redskins, and the defensive coverage provided by the linebackers in the middle of the field could be a cause for concern. Five of Washington quarterback Donovan McNabb's 11 completions and 89 of his 206 yards came in the middle of the field.

AFC East Miami Dolphins 2000 record: 11-5 Total picks: 8 First round: No. 26 Biggest needs: WR, OT Draft scenario: The Dolphins added WRs James McKnight and Dedric Ward in free agency, but still could use more help at the position. They like University of Miami WRs Santana Moss and Reggie Wayne. They also have some interest in QB Drew Brees, who could easily be available at their pick. Because free-agent OT Richmond Webb hasn't signed yet, that's another position of need. Indianapolis Colts 2000 record: 10-6 Total picks: 6 First round: No. 22 Biggest needs: DT, CB Draft scenario: The Colts are set on offense, but need upgrades on defense to take the next step in the playoffs.

- To see how much influence Robert Griffin III is beginning to accumulate in the Washington, D.C. area, consider that the Washington Redskins quarterback is being given credit for helping the last-place Washington Wizards upset the reigning NBA champion Miami Heat Tuesday night. All he did was attend the game. Griffin smiled as he was informed about the credit. "Just say thank you. I don't know. What can you say?" Griffin said when asked after Wednesday's practice for his response.

— In a performance befitting their dismal, error- and injury-filled campaign, the Washington Redskins stumbled their way through a 34-10 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in their final game of the season Sunday. Rex Grossman kept team and individual turnover streaks intact with his 20th interception of the season. Poor tackling and breakdowns in pass coverage led to big scoring plays for the Eagles (8-8). Ineffective red zone play and penalties kept the Redskins from scoring themselves.

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan made a surprise move Sunday, benching former Ravens backup John Beck and returning to Rex Grossman as the team's starting quarterback in an attempt to spark his struggling offense and end a four-game losing streak. It didn't do the trick. Washington managed to move the ball a little better but still could not score touchdowns and fell, 20-9, to the Dolphins, giving Shanahan the first five-game losing streak of his coaching career and the Redskins their first such streak since 2001.

Mike Shanahan's switch from Rex Grossman to former Ravens backup John Beck as starting quarterback couldn't ignite the Washington Redskins, who suffered another series of critical injuries to their starters Sunday as they lost, 33-20, to the Carolina Panthers at Bank of America Stadium. A week after Grossman got the hook during a loss to the struggling Philadelphia Eagles, Beck took over — making his first start since December 2007 — but he and his increasingly battered team were defeated, 33-20, by a one-win team for a second consecutive week.

In the final tuneup of the preseason, the Ravens may have some tinkering to do with their pass defense. The unit surrendered 145 yards through the air to the Washington Redskins in the first half Thursday night and allowed a passing touchdown on an opponent's final possession of the first half for the second consecutive game. Even worse, the Ravens made Rex Grossman , a backup to Donovan McNabb last season, look like an elite quarterback as he connected on eight of 15 passes for 112 yards and a 24-yard touchdown strike to wide receiver Santana Moss with 51 seconds remaining in the second quarter.

ASHBURN, Va. - Carlos Rogers wasn't impressed. In his first glimpse of NFL action, the highly touted rookie cornerback for the Washington Redskins matched up against Pro Bowl receiver Chad Johnson and fellow wide-out T.J. Houshmandzadeh in the Redskins' 24-17 preseason loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Friday night and surrendered a 45-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Kelley Washington in that game. But when he was asked about Cincinnati's wide receivers, Rogers wasn't gushing. "I look at them like they're regular guys," Rogers said Monday.
