Rookie slot receiver Steven Sims has played a combined 56 snaps the past two weeks -- after playing 73 in the first 10 games. Look for the speedy Sims to continue playing more even when Trey Quinn returns from a concussion. "[Sims] just gives us a different dimension in the slot," interim coach Bill Callahan said. "Hopefully we can feature him a little more." Sims has excelled at winning one-on-one routes over the middle; one player said they need to find a way to get him the ball more.

ESPN Daily: Does the Patriots' upset mean Tom Brady is slipping?

After the Texans upset the Patriots we have to ask (again): is it real this time? Is Tom Brady slipping? Host Mina Kimes and ESPN Senior Football Writer Bill Barnwell turn to the numbers for answers. Then, after the Eagles fell to the Dolphins and the Cowboys lost to the Bills, another pressing question: does any team really want to win the NFC East?

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

Safety Landon Collins, who had a team-best eight tackles and blitzed effectively in the second half, said the Redskins knew the Carolina run game "like the back of our hand" which is how they held back Christian McCaffrey to 44 yards on 14 carries. He also had 58 yards on seven catches, but didn't gain much after the catch. "We just ran the right coverages," he said. "They threw the ball right into the coverage we wanted. We dictated what they were supposed to do with the ball."

Running back Derrius Guice said a game like this doesn't boost his confidence. That was never an issue. "I've always had confidence. Just had bad luck and couldn't really show it," he said. He showed it Sunday: Guice ran 10 times for 129 yards and two touchdowns.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

The Redskins gained 362 total yards -- their second highest total and best since the season opener when they managed 398. The Redskins had not surpassed 300 yards since Week 6 vs. Miami. In fact, their 248 rushing yards Sunday topped their total yards for each of the previous five games.

The Redskins have a two-game winning streak -- and a finish that should have been easy, naturally, wasn't. But a clutch goal-line stand by the defense clinched a 29-21 upset of Carolina. The Redskins won because their run game produced a season-high 248 yards and the defense held Christian McCaffrey to 102 all-purpose yards. They also received excellent contributions from two players signed this week: outside linebackers Nate Orchard and Chris Odom.

Panthers' Olsen concussed; Anderson ejected

Panthers tight end Greg Olsen was placed in the concussion protocol after a vicious helmet-to-helmet hit by Redskins linebacker Ryan Anderson, who was ejected.

Redskins safety Landon Collins continues to play well -- and his blitzes have created openings for teammates. Collins attacks the line well and forces blockers to pay extra attention -- and leaves others in one-on-one situations or free.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

The Redskins' defense has done a terrific job since the first two series. Carolina gained 130 total yards on those two touchdown drives, but since then the Panthers have managed just 14 total yards. The Redskins have pressured quarterback Kyle Allen with various rushes -- some stunts and blitzes. And they have contained running back Christian McCaffrey, who has just 65 all-purpose yards midway through the third quarter.

The Redskins trail, 14-12, at halftime in a game they could now be winning -- but also one that appeared to be headed for an early blowout. After giving up touchdowns on Carolina's first two drives, the Redskins responded by shutting down back Christian McCaffrey. who had 27 of his 64 all-purpose yards on the opening drive. Quarterback Dwayne Haskins only has 87 yards passing, but has been more accurate. However, they blew a chance for more points at the end of the half.
