The Washington Redskins fell to 0-4 yesterday, losing on the road to the New York Giants. Quarterback Case Keenum struggled so much that head coach Jay Gruden switched to rookie Dwayne Haskins after just a few drives.

But the former Ohio State quarterback failed to provide a spark, throwing three interceptions in a 24-3 loss. As a result, neither Keenum or Haskins are locks to start against the New England Patriots next week.

According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, quarterback Colt McCoy is also in the mix to be the starter in Week 5. McCoy missed the start of the season with an injury, but is now healthy.

Per the report, McCoy might have even won the starting job this season if not for his injury.

ProFootballTalk suggested that putting Haskins out for his first start against the vaunted Patriots defense would do more harm than good.

The team drafted him No. 16 overall in the 2019 NFL Draft, and expect him to be their franchise quarterback of the future.

Washington has the worst record in the NFC, and it's widely believed that Gruden could be fired soon.

At this point, Gruden may be in desperation mode as he tries to convince ownership that he hasn't lost the team.
