Washington Redskins defensive lineman Barry Cofield isn’t sure that his team, who has now lost five contests in a row, can win another game.

“There’s no guarantee that we can win another game,” Cofield told the Washington Post. “We just don’t have a team on our schedule that’s just going to lay down and you know, let us beat them.

“If we don’t play better,” he added, “there’s no reason to expect to win any games. The ball’s not going to just bounce our way. It could get very ugly. It could get historically ugly. Hopefully, guys are fearful of that, and hopefully, guys focus in and just come together and do whatever it takes to get a win. If we don’t, it’s going to be a very long winter.”

After a 3-1 start, the Redskins have lost in consecutive weeks to the Philadelphia Eagles, Carolina Panthers, Buffalo Bills, San Francisco 49ers, and most recently the Miami Dolphins. Looking forward, the only teams the Redskins play that currently have a losing record are the Seattle Seahawks, the Minnesota Vikings, and the talented  but underperforming Philadelphia Eagles. Cofield is in his first season with Washington after spending five seasons with the New York Giants. The former fourth round pick has two sacks and 15 total tackles on the year.
