ASHBURN, Va -- The Washington Redskins will start and finish the 2020 regular season against the NFC East Champions.

Washington will open against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday September 13th at FedEx Field at 1pm. They will follow that with back to back road games against Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals on September 20th at 4:05. Then a trip to the dog pound where Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns will await them on September 27th at 1pm.

The Redskins will play three of the next four games at home, starting against the defending AFC North Champs, the Baltimore Ravens on October 4th at 1pm. That's followed by a visit from former Redskins Offensive Coordinator Sean McVay and the L.A. Rams to FedEx Field on October 11th at 1pm. The only road game in this stretch will be a trip to MetLife Stadium to face the New York Giants on October 18th at 1pm. After that, Washington returns to FedEx Field to host the Dallas Cowboys on October 25th.

Washington will have their bye week during week eight of the season. Afterwards, the New York Giants will face the Redskins on November 8th at 1pm. Washington will head back on the road on November 15th to face the Detroit Lions at 1pm. The Redskins will end this stretch with a home game against the Cincinnati Bengals and the number one overall pick in this year's draft, LSU quarterback Joe Burrow on November 22nd at 1pm on CBS.

Arguably, the Redskins toughest stretch of the season will happen from weeks 12-14. First, a Thanksgiving showdown in Dallas against the Cowboys on November 26th at 4:30. Then the Redskins will travel up I-95 to the Steel City to face the Pittsburgh Steelers on December 6th at 1pm. And the third of their three straight road games during this stretch will be on Sunday December 13th against the NFC Champs, the San Francisco 49'ers. The Redskins will face their former Offensive Coordinator Kyle Shanahan and will play against their former teammate Trent Williams, who was traded in April.

Washington's final three games of the season won't be easy either. On Sunday December 20th, they will host former Collegiate standout Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks at 1pm. The Redskins final home game of the year will be the following week when Head Coach Ron Rivera face his former team, the Carolina Panthers at FedEx Field on December 27th at 1pm. The Redskins will end the regular season just like they started it, with a date against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday January 3rd at 1pm.
