The Washington Redskins 2020 Season is here! After bringing in new head coach Ron Rivera and drafting Chase Young, the Redskins are hoping that they can build on a season where they finished 3-13 and last place in the NFC East.
Here is a complete breakdown of the Redskins’ 2020 schedule, including dates, start times and some analysis.
Washington’s 2020 Schedule:
Week 1: vs Philadelphia Eagles @ FedEx Field, 1:00pm
- The Ron Rivera era begins at home against a division rival. The Redskins failed to win a divisional game last season and have fallen to the Eagles the last six times the two teams have matched up. A win over the Eagles would get the Rivera era off to a great start and give the Redskins their first divisional win since Week 8 of the 2018 season.
Week 2: @ Arizona Cardinals – State Farm Stadium, 4:05pm
Week 3: @ Cleveland Browns – FirstEnergy Stadium, 1:00pm
Week 4: vs Baltimore Ravens @ FedEx Field, 1:00pm
- The Redskins play the AFC North this season for their cross-divisional games, bringing the reigning NFL MVP Lamar Jackson to town. The defense will definitely have its work cut out trying to slow down the league’s best rushing attack from a season ago. The Skins, however, have won the last two matchups against the Ravens, in 2012 and 2016. Washington also has to face a talented team that underperformed a season ago in the Cleveland Browns the week before.
Week 5: vs Los Angeles Ram @ FedEx Field, 1:00pm
Week 6: @ New York Giants – MetLife Stadium, 1:00pm
Week 7: vs Dallas Cowboys @ FedEx Field, 1:00pm
Week 8: BYE WEEK
Week 9: vs New York Giants @ FedEx Field, 1:00pm
Week 10: @ Detroit Lions – Ford Field, 1:00pm
Week 11: vs Cincinnati Bengals @ FedEx Field, 1:00pm
Week 12 (THANKSGIVING): @ Dallas Cowboys – AT&T Stadium, 4:30pm
Week 13: @ Pittsburgh Steelers – Heinz Field, 1:00pm
Week 14: @ San Francisco – Levi’s Stadium, 4:25pm
- Washington traveling to San Francisco means that they’ll be squaring off against seven-time Pro Bowl tackle Trent Williams. Back on day three of the 2020 NFL Draft, Washington traded Williams to the 49ers for a 2020 5th-round pick, which was used on center Steve Ismail, and a 2021 third-rounder. With Joey Bosa and Richard Sherman anchoring the defense and a traditional run-heavy offense, this matchup presents a tough end to a three-game road trip.
Week 15: vs Seattle Seahawks @ FedEx Field, 1:00pm
Week 16: vs Carolina Panthers @ FedEx Field, 1:00pm
Week 17: @ Philadelphia Eagles – Lincoln Financial Field, 1:00pm
