ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) One thing the Washington Redskins almost certainly won’t have to worry about this year is a must-win game in the season finale to make the playoffs.

The Redskins pretty much took themselves out of the postseason picture before the calendar even turned to December, which happened soon after their 38-14 loss Thursday night to the Dallas Cowboys still without suspended running back Ezekiel Elliott.

”Right now, it looks as if we are not going to make the playoffs,” tight end Vernon Davis said. ”So I think at this point, we just have to continue to keep competing, keep playing and keep playing for one another. … You can’t give up.”
