Jay Gruden joked he will keep working as the Washington Redskins head coach "if the key works on Monday" amid speculation over his future.

The Redskins' dismal start to the 2019 season continued on Sunday as they dropped to 0-5 with a 33-7 home defeat to the New England Patriots.

Washington are 0-5 for the first time since 2001 and the Redskins have lost 11 of their last 12 games, a run that has naturally led many to question how long Gruden has left in charge.

"Nobody's told me anything," Gruden said of his future at a media conference. "If the key works on Monday, I’ll keep working.

"I've been provided ample opportunities to succeed around here. I've got good players, I've got a good staff. We just haven't produced on Sundays, or Monday. So (we've) got to do better."

Gruden took over as Redskins coach in 2014 and has a record of 35-49-1, leading them to just one playoff appearance.

Washington visit another winless team, the Miami Dolphins, this weekend.
