ASHBURN, Va. -- Fending off questions about Washingtons worst-in-the-NFL third down defense, Redskins defensive coordinator Joe Barry brought the subject back to the basics.The bottom line is points, he said.Give up fewer points than you score is the name of the game, Barry contended, and his defense has been able to do that in the most crucial situations this season. Six out of seven times the Redskins kept an opponent from taking the lead late in the fourth quarter or overtime, a major reason theyre still in the playoff race with three games left.Coach Jay Gruden preaches `master the situation all the time, linebacker Mason Foster said. He challenges us each and every week to master the situations and when we do a good job at it, we usually get the `W. When we mess it up or break down in those situations we usually lose. ... We know what it takes.With a showdown against Cam Newton and the defending NFC champion Carolina Panthers (5-8) on Monday night, the Redskins (7-5-1) would like to improve their defense on third down, which now ranks 31st in the league, and in the red zone, which is 29th. Those are situations Gruden and Barry would also love to master.But late-game stops have become a hallmark of Washingtons defense, which faltered only in a loss to Detroit when Barry and the coaching staff rushed three against Matt Stafford and the Lions. The defense held in twice tie against the Cincinnati Bengals and once each in victories over the New York Giants, Baltimore Ravens, Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles.Questions about the defense getting the necessary stop were so pointed that some wondered if running back Chris Thompson shouldve taken a knee at the 1-yard line Sunday in Philadelphia to run out the clock rather than scoring a touchdown and putting the Eagles offense back on the field. Carson Wentz led the beginnings of a game-winning drive before a sack fumble by linebacker Ryan Kerrigan as the Redskins showed once again they could deliver with the game on thhe line.ddddddddddddThey played good when it mattered and thats important, Gruden said. Overall our defense hung in there, stuck with the plan and made plays when they had to.Players said the message in the huddle late in the Eagles game was about personal responsibility. The already-depleted defense was missing linebackers Will Compton (knee) and Sua Cravens (elbow) and safety Will Blackmon (concussion), who could be out again Monday against Carolina.Cornerback Josh Norman, who was an All-Pro last year with the Panthers, wants the Redskins to display an edge in late-game situations.At the end of the day you just got to have that `want to in you, Norman said. When a guy crosses your face and you tell him that, `Youre not going to beat me and if he does, theres going to be a problem. If you do get a penalty for being aggressive, at least it was an aggressive penalty. It wasnt like they dont run over you. No, smack them in the mouth.Smacking the ball out of opponents hands has been a strength of the defense, which ranks sixth with 22 forced fumbles. Only recovering seven before Kerrigans game-saving play was a point of contention, especially as Gruden pointed to a lack of forcing turnovers as a reason for back-to-back losses at Dallas and Arizona.Even those were decided by one score, which 10 of the Redskins 13 games have been. Thats the epitome of situational football for a defense thats accustomed to things being close down to the wire.Our team has been in all types of game situations where we have to come back as an offense or make a stop on defense, defensive end Chris Baker said. It does help our confidence, but we would like to try to blow a team out every now and then so that it is not so stressful for us.---AP Pro Football Writer Rob Maaddi in Philadelphia contributed.---For more NFL coverage: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFLWholesale HoodiesNFL Shirts OutletJerseys NFL WholesaleCheap NFL Jerseys Free ShippingWholesale Jerseys CheapCheap NFL Jerseys ChinaWholesale JerseysWholesale NFL JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
