Redskins 35, Bills 25

Washington has chance to clinch

LANDOVER, Md. — After last-place finishes in six of the past seven years, Washington is closing in on a playoff berth.

Inspiring a soundtrack of "You like that!" chants in the stands, Kirk Cousins equaled his career high with four touchdown passes and ran 13 yards for a score as the Redskins earned consecutive victories for the first time in more than a year

"We had a lot on our hands. Everybody said we couldn't win back-to-back games," said receiver DeSean Jackson, who turned a short throw from Cousins into a 77-yard score. The Redskins can secure a postseason spot by winning Saturday at Philadelphia.

"We still have a dogfight in front of us," offensive tackle Trent Williams said.

The Bills are assured of missing the playoffs for the 16th year in a row, the longest active drought in the league.
