The Redskins need to close the season by snapping a losing streak in the NFC East, which interim coach Bill Callahan said gives them something to play for. They've lost seven straight in the division. "I'd like to see us compete in divisional games," Callahan said. "It's a chance to redeem ourselves and set a tone for next season."

Interim coach Bill Callahan said he can't "heap enough accolades" on running back Adrian Peterson, who will resume the heavy lifting duties with Derrius Guice done for the year. "In every aspect he's a pro's pro," Callahan said of Peterson. He's rushed for 720 yards this season after topping 1,000 last year.

Redskins corner Simeon Thomas was suspended four games for violating the NFL's policy on substance abuse. He'll miss the final three games this season and have to sit out the season opener in 2020 if he's on a roster. Thomas was a backup corner and special teams player. After Quinton Dunbar hurt his hamstring last week, Thomas played ahead of benched corner Josh Norman. Without Thomas and if Dunbar can't play Sunday, Norman could see some action.

Derrius Guice won't play this week because of a knee injury, interim coach Bill Callahan said. But Callahan said he did not yet know the results of an MRI taken earlier today. So he did not know the severity of the injury or how long he'd miss.

Quarterback Dwayne Haskins said "there was no way I was coming out of that game," despite a sprained right ankle. He was moving around fine after the game and doctors cleared him right away. He wasn't moving as well at times in the pocket, but Haskins said, "I had to battle through it. It's a tough injury, but I'll be all right."

Aaron Jones leads Packers past Washington, 20-15

Aaron Jones rushed for a season-high 134 yards and a touchdown on just 16 carries, Aaron Rodgers threw for 195 yards and the Green Bay Packers did enough to beat the Washington Redskins 20-15 Sunday.

Redskins interim coach Bill Callahan said there was no consideration to taking quarterback Dwayne Haskins out of the game. He hurt his ankle but was cleared by doctors. "He battled hard and battled through tough bumps," Callahan said.

The Redskins were officially eliminated from playoff contention with Sunday's 20-15 loss to the Green Bay Packers. Washington had not yet been eliminated because of the poor teams in the NFC East. The Redskins actually kept this game close when it probably shouldn't have been given how Green Bay took an early 14-0 lead. The run game once again helped and the defense held Green Bay to two second-half field goals.

Redskins running back Adrian Peterson became the sixth running back in NFL history to surpass 14,000 career rushing yards. Peterson entered the game needing 40 yards and surpassed that total in the first half.

The Redskins recovered from another bad start and only trail Green Bay, 14-6, at halftime. But there are underlying issues: They're pressuring rookie QB Dwayne Haskins often; he limped off the field at halftime. Derrius Guice hurt a knee and so far has not returned. Corner Quinton Dunbar hurt his hamstring and limped slowly off the field. Haskins did not have a strong half (5-11, 66 yards, one interception). The run game (90 yards) has helped.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

Running back Adrian Peterson now has eight rushing touchdowns at Lambeau Field -- most ever by an opposing player and passing former Bear Walter Payton. Peterson's 16 career touchdowns vs. Green Bay is second all-time vs. the Packers, trailing only Payton (19).
