ASHBURN, Va. —

The Washington Redskins are back in the playoffs. That means Mike Shanahan is, too.

The seven-game winning streak that gave the Redskins the NFC East title also put their coach in the playoffs for the first time since his 2005 season with the Denver Broncos.

Shanahan's legacy was on the wane less than two months ago, when he was 14-27 after roughly 2 1/2 seasons in Washington. His two Super Bowl titles with the Broncos came back in the 1990s.

As it turns out, he still knows what he's doing.

Shanahan said Monday that "people forget very quickly what you've done" and that he's proud of this year's team for overcoming the adversity of a 3-6 start.

The Redskins host the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
