Before the Redskins-Seahawks “Monday Night Football” game, every ESPN analyst picked the Seahawks to win. They were all right.

Before the Redskins-Cowboys “Monday Night Football” game, every ESPN analyst picked the Cowboys to win. They were all wrong.

“The entire country thought there was no shot the Redskins could hang with the Cowboys today,” NBC’s Dianna Russini said during Coach Jay Gruden’s press conference. “To be able to go out and do what you did…”

“The whole country except the 53 guys in here and the coaches [thought that],” Gruden responded. “We expected to win. We expected to win, and we came out and played like it.”

Of course, the CBS “NFL Today” crew had guffawed earlier at the possibility of a Redskins win. They were wrong, too.

(As was I, of course. You, too, likely.)
