The 2001 Washington Redskins season began with the team trying to improve on their 8–8 record from 2000. Despite a very poor start to the season at 0-5, with some speculation that they might win as little as 2 games, the Redskins began a 5 game winnings streak, and by week 14 were 6-6 and in the midst in the NFC playoff hunt. However, despite outplaying their next 2 opponents, the Redskins dropped 2 critical games to the Eagles and Bears, eliminating them from playoff contention, though they would finish the season on a high note at 8-8.
