Caesars Sportsbook's head of risk Jeff Davis says an hour before the early kickoffs that Washington is the book's biggest need, followed closely by the Falcons: "We will need to win one of those two games or we will need to win every other game." Washington is a 10-point underdog to the 49ers, who have attracted 91% of the point-spread bets at Caesars.

The Washington Redskins promoted running back Craig Reynolds off the practice squad and released receiver Cam Sims. With running back Chris Thompson already out for Sunday the Redskins needed a third back to go with Adrian Peterson and Wendell Smallwood. Reynolds was a standout at Division II Kutztown and was an undrafted free agent signing in the spring.

Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins called the idea that he can't read defenses "a joke". Haskins hasn't played since the Giants game in Week 4 when he relieved Case Keenum. Offensive coordinator Kevin O'Connell said he's seen more urgency from Haskins since that game.

Redskins receiver Terry McLaurin said the "Scary Terry" nickname is OK but there are others he's liked better —one in particular that is about speed. He also says he's a simple guy who doesn't need one.

Redskins safety Landon Collins was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his role in Washington's 17-16 win over Miami on Sunday. Collins, who has earned this honor four times in his career, finished with 10 solo tackles (12 total), a sack, a forced fumble and two passes defensed. Collins is the first Redskins' defensive player to be named player of the week since linebacker Keenan Robinson in 2014. Washington signed Collins to a six-year deal worth up to $84 million in March.

Redskins defensive end Jonathan Allen, who had two sacks, said, "When you win you're excited, when you lose you're not. It doesn't matter how you get it done in the NFL. There's no highs and lows. That's what you guys don't understand. I'm not jumping for joy. We won. We were supposed to win."

MIAMI— Receiver Terry McLaurin continues to stand out as a rookie in part because of his route running. It was evident on his touchdown when he sold a crossing route with a head bob. And it was obvious on his 33-yard catch late in the game. McLaurin was proud of that catch because of what it represented.

MIAMI -- Biggest takeaway: Beating winless Miami by one point won't lead to a Redskins turnaround, though it's hard to imagine the feeling had the Dolphins converted the two-point conversion. The Redskins need better play from quarterback Case Keenum; they need the defense to provide a consistent pass rush -- not just against a second-year QB who holds the ball too long (Josh Rosen). They helped themselves with the run game; a good start. But there's a lot of work left to do. They know it.

Redskins interim coach Bill Callahan said after the teams first win that "our guys were resilient and it showed. Our practices and how we practiced transferred to the game."

The Redskins never make it easy -- even when holding two touchdown leads vs. winless teams. But they escaped with a 17-16 win over Miami thanks to a failed two-point conversion by the Dolphins. It wasn't pretty. But the Redskins did rush for 145 yards to give interim coach Bill Callahan a win in his first game. Rookie receiver Terry McLaurin was a big factor again with four catches for 100 yards and two touchdowns. The defense started strong with a lot of pressure but finished poorly.

Tight end Jerome Cunningham has a knee injury. His return is questionable.
