The Washington Redskins lost to the Houston Texans 6‑17 Sunday afternoon, but you won’t read that headline in the New York Daily News, which has not only abolished the “R-word” from all sections of the paper but redesigned the team’s logo to remove any offensive iconography.

There were even a few small protests outside the stadium urging a team name change.

It seems Twitter is getting used to the idea, with some opting for alternatives such as “the Washington professional football team.”
