The offense has been there all year, averaging like 27 points per game (that really good), the defense was hurt by a couple of key injuries to Carriker, Orakpo and their safeties. When the light finally clicked for the young guys - Jenkins (DE) and Jackson (LB), they began to win.

Shanahan could gone the easy way and fired Haslett (something everyone in DC wanted to happen), but he stuck the coarse and they have played better.

That team believes and appears to be on the right path.
