Washington Redskins 2014 News and Updates
11/20/14 - Have things gone from bad to worse for the Washington Redskins? In the days after an embarrassing loss to Tampa Bay in which the Skins could muster just seven points, head coach Jay Gruden leveled a stinging line of criticism at first string quarterback Robert Griffin III, saying in so many words that RGIII needs to work more on his fundamentals, among other things.
11/13/14 - RGIII is back…but unfortunately he couldn’t prevent the Washington Redskins from falling short to Minnesota. They’ve had the bye week to work on things, and prepare for a struggling Tampa Bay squad coming into FedEx Field this weekend.
10/31/14 - In an exciting game that had fans on the edge of their seats, the Washington Redskins pulled out a win over the Dallas Cowboys on Monday, October 27th. Colt McCoy led his team with 299 passing yards into a secured 20-17 win. This was McCoy’s first time playing in Texas since his last game in college. The Cowboys fought hard and even had a final opportunity to try to turn the game before the clock ran out, but were unable to deliver a first down. The Redskins now stand at 3-5 season and are looking for more success on November 2nd in their game against the Vikings. There are still tickets available for the Redskins’ next home game at FedEx Field on November 16th starting at a mere $7.
11/3/14 - The struggling Washington Redskins got franchise quarterback Robert Griffin III back in action this past weekend, but it wasn’t enough to ger the Skins over Minnesota. RGIII tossed 251 yards worth of passed with a touchdown and an INT, but was outdone by rookie Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater on the day.
10/20/14 – The 2-4 Redskins will play on the road in Week 8 against NFC East foes Dallas Cowboys. Colt McCoy is set to start if RGIII is not ready to comeback from his left ankle injury. The divisional showdown in Arlington is the fifth cheapest game of the week as McCoy looks to have another positive impact on the gridiron two weeks in a row. The backup QB completed 11 of 12 passes for 128 yards and a TD to lead the Redskins to a game-winning field goal as the clock winded down.
10/15/14 - Washington Redskins tickets are averaging $64, the cheapest price of Week 7 in the league. It’s the Tennessee Titans who will be in town and for just $7, you can watch the matchup at FedEx Field. Keep your eye out for Redskins alums who are expected to be attending the team’s annual Homecoming celebration.
10/10/14 - The Washington Redskins lost their third straight game in a row to the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football. Given the elite competition, the Redskins played surprising well. DeSean Jackson caught a 60 yard grab for a touchdown. David Amerson made a key tackle of Percy Harvin on 3rd and 4, keeping the Redskins in the game. The Seahawks helped the Redskins’ cause with penalty woes. But ultimately, the Redskins lost 27-17 and now have a 1-4 record after Week 5. The Redskins made a handful of roster moves after the loss, and hope to play with the same resurgence of fight as the Seahawks game, except next time win the game. Their next opportunity will be to play the Arizona Cardinals on the road on Sunday.
10/1/14 – It’s going to be a Monday night to remember in Landover as the Redskins welcome the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks to FedEx Field. Despite the strong opponent, Washington Redskins ticket prices are super cheap starting at just $16. At an average cost of $100, the Week 5 matchup is the least expensive on the Redskins schedule.
9/29/14 - It was a disappointing loss for the Washington Redskins last Thursday, as the Skins had no answer for an unheralded tight end for the New York Giants – Larry Donnell – who had three touchdown receptions en route to a 45-14 result in the New Yorkers’ favor. Kirk Cousins, subbing for the injured Robert Griffin III, was intercepted four times – three of which came in a period of five attempts – on the night, finishing 19-of-33 for 257 yards, but also one touchdown, an 18-yarder to Andre Roberts. Alfred Morris accounted for the Skins’ other score, a 20-yard run in the third quarter; for the night Morris rushed 12 times for 63 yards.
9/22/14 - Offensively, the Washington Redskins had a game which many teams would give their eyeteeth to have – 511 yards of total offense, 27 total first downs, 3-for-4 in the red zone. But as it happened, the Redskins’ opponent, Philadelphia, had more of what really counted: points on the scoreboard, as the Eagles outdueled Washington, 37-34. Quarterback Kirk Cousins, starting in place of the injured Robert Griffin III, threw for 427 yards on 30-of-48 passing, with three touchdowns; one each to Darrel Young; Pierre Garcon; and DeSean Jackson, making his return to Lincoln Financial Field after being signed in the offseason as a free agent from the Eagles. Alfred Morris rushed for 77 yards on 23 carries, while short-yardage specialist Roy Helu scored once on the ground.
9/15/14 - In defeating Jacksonville 41-10 in their home opener, the Washington Redskins paid a rather high price for victory, as quarterback Robert Griffin III left the game very early in the first quarter with a severely dislocated ankle. Griffin had run twice for 22 yards, and completed two of his three pass attempts when he tried to make a play passing across his body, but caught his foot in the notoriously bad FedEx Field turf as he went out of bounds. A scan on Monday revealed that the ankle had not been fractured, which may be a good sign, in that many were expecting RGIII to be out for the rest of the season. This is the fourth time in his short career that Griffin has left a game due to injury. In his place, Kirk Cousins was 22-of-33 for 250 yards and two touchdowns, while Alfred Morris added two more scores as part of his 85 yards rushing on 22 carries.
9/8/14 - For Washington Redskins fans, Week 1 of the new NFL season felt reminiscent of last year’s disastrous 3-13 campaign, as the team fell to the Houston Texans 17-6. Despite Robert Griffin III’s effectiveness as a passer – he was 29-of-37 for a game high 267 yards, and only ran twice the entire game – it was offensive turnovers and special-teams problems that ultimately doomed the Skins, who fumbled twice in the red zone on second-half drives, and had an extra point and a punt blocked, the latter returned for a Texans touchdown. Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was effective, completing 14 of 22 attempts for 206 yards and a 76-yard touchdown toss to DeAndre Hopkins. Arian Foster rushed 27 times for 103 yards, while his Washington counterpart, Alfred Morris, collected 91 yards on 14 carries.
9/3/14 - The Washington Redskins finished their preseason on a positive note, defeating Tampa Bay 24-10. No. 3 quarterback Colt McCoy took all the offensive snaps for the Skins, completing 22 of 29 passes for 321 yards, with two scoring strikes, a pair of interceptions and one sack. Although Lache Seastrunk had a versatile game for the Skins – six rushes for 23 yards, a pair of receptions for 88 yards, a team high – he failed to make the final cut for the 53-man roster over the weekend. While the Skins’ starting offense failed to score a touchdown in their time on the field, quarterback Robert Griffin III says of the team, “We’re all ready to go. We’re all pumped up.”
8/25/14 - Last weekend’s performance against Baltimore is one Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III would like to have back. While RGIII completed five of his eight passes, his completions gained a grand total of just 20 yards, all in the first half of the Skins’ 23-17 loss to the Ravens. Griffin also showed some uncharacteristic sloppiness by dropping a snap, suffering three sacks, and also tossed an interception. Backup Kirk Cousins had a much better game, completing 14 of 20 for 122 yards and a pair of touchdowns, one to Santana Moss and the other to Nick Williams.
8/19/14 - Despite allowing a touchdown to Cleveland’s phenom Johnny Manziel, the Washington Redskins came back to defeat Cleveland in their second preseason game, 24-23. Skins quarterback Robert Griffin III was effective during his time on the field, completing six of eight passes for 112 yards, while also throwing an interception. Backup Kirk Cousins saw much of the action for the rest of the game, completing 12 of 21 for 145 yards, a touchdown and a pick. Griffin’s drives resulted in zero points for the Skins, as running back Alfred Morris fumbled a pitch on one drive, and then failed to score on four plays from first-and-goal at the Cleveland 3. The Skins next head up Interstate 95 this coming weekend to take on Baltimore.
8/11/14 - Comings and goings with the Washington Redskins: Defensive end Jason Hatcher finally cleared his physical last week, and was taken off the “physically unable to perform” list. Hatcher had been recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery which took place in June. DeSean Jackson will play in the Skins, next preseason game this weekend; he missed the opener against New England last week with a bruised ankle. The bad news, though not as bad as feared: Cornerback DeAngelo Hall suffered a bruised back during a weekend practice, and was taken off the field by cart; however, coach Jay Gruden indicated the veteran defensive back was up and walking, and participating in a limited capacity in Monday’s practice.
8/4/14 - The Jay Gruden era has been officially in effect for a full offseason plus 10 days of training camp, and while these early training camp sessions don’t reveal a whole lot, Washington Redskins general manager Bruce Allen likes what he sees. With the team’s forst preseason game coming this weekend, Allen gave the Washington Post’s “Insider” Redskins blog this assessment, saying, “Very smooth (…) Keeping the guys healthy is propriety No. 1, and learning, too. So we’re doing well on the learning.” Washington Post reporter Mike Jones says that the players have also noted a “more spirited and competitive tone” to Gruden’s workouts, which have made an emphasis on string fundamentals, discipline, and high intensity – all basic ingredients for success.
7/30/14 - It’s been the subject of any number of discussions since last season, and now Washington Redskins vice president and general manager Bruce Allen admitted the obvious this week: Robert Griffin III was rushed into action. In an interview on ESPN radio in Washington, Allen said that RGIII, who was coming off surgery to repair multiple ligaments, didn’t have enough practice time to prepare for the season; even though he’d been cleared to return to practice. Griffin had been working alone and on the sidelines until midway through August, toward the end of training camp, and by then the team was well into its exhibition season. However, Allen said, “(This) year he’s had a full offseason, his knee is 100 percent, knock on wood…and that’s how you get ready to play a football season.” Observers of the team have noted that Griffin looks much more comfortable in drills.
7/21/14 - While you’re watching the Washington Redskins on TV this season, if you stop and think, “Hey, this offensive set looks awfully familiar”…well, according to the players, the Skins are indeed running a similar offense. The Washington Post’s Mark Maske reports that, from all indications, the offense is not as much about a complete overhaul under new coach Jay Gruden, than it is tinkering. “It’s not much of a difference from the offense last year, to tell you the truth,” receiver Pierre Garcon said. Sean McVay, who was tight ends coach under previous head coach Mike Shanahan, was retained and promoted to offensive coordinator under Gruden; certain parts of the old system have been retained, particularly in the running game. However, don’t expect to see as many designed running plays for quarterback Robert Griffin III; instead, featured running back Alfred Morris will get even more of the running calls under Gruden and McVay.
7/14/14 - With training camp just around the corner, it’s starting to be time for “bold predictions” – some obviously bolder than others. The blog HTTR4LIFE (“HTTR” being a commonly-used hashtag for “Hail to the Redskins”) has made some decidedly bold predictions about the Skins 2014 season: Philip Hughes, one of the site’s bloggers, makes these decidedly bold predictions: Linebackers Ryan Kerrigan and Brian Orakpo will both collect over 12 sacks apiece; quarterback Robert Griffin III will start all 16 regular season games AND be named to the Pro Bowl; the team will beat rivals Dallas and Philadelphia twice each; running back Alfred Morris will rush for over 1,500 yards; and finally, the Skins will finish with a record of 10-6 and win the NFC East. Lofty goals, all, considering last year’s disappointing season…but all achievable.
7/8/14 - If you can believe a (slightly) biased source – Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay – Robert Griffin III looks as good as new. At least so says Pro Football Talk, who picked up a piece discussing the dual-threat quarterback from the Washington Post’s Dan Steinberg, author of the popular DC Sports Bog. McVay said that RGIII looks as fast now, without the brace he wore on his knee last season, as he did on film in his spectacular rookie year of 2012. A healthy Griffin is a must for the Skins if they expect to contend for the postseason the way they did in 2012, when he ran for seven touchdowns and over 800 yards while maintaining a passer rating of over 100 for the season.
7/1/14 - He’s trying to make the squad at a very crowded position, but with a name like his, don’t put anything past him. The Washington Redskins, suddenly loaded with target receivers (DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon, Aldrick Robinson, and Andre Roberts, to name a few) signed receiver Jerry Rice Jr., son of the Hall of Famer and one of the greatest pass-catchers of all time, to a contract last week. Rice is a product of UCLA and Nevada-Las Vegas, and is making his third attempt to hook on with an NFL team; he has had tryouts with Baltimore and San Francisco, his dad’s team. Interestingly, CSN Washington reports that if Jackson had already been there, Roberts would not have signed with the Skins; however, he said that he has become comfortable with the decision.
6/24/14 - His first offseason as Washington Redskins head coach is over, and Jay Gruden could not be more pleased at how it went. With just a few excused absences among the players, Gruden’s OTAs and mandatory minicamp had otherwise full participation this offseason, leading him to reward the team with cancellation of the last practice session of minicamp. Gruden told Washington Post blogger Mike Jones, “It was good to get everybody in the building and everybody working together … (Overall) I feel like the team together is coming along great and the unity is where it needs to be at this point.” The Skins have just five weeks before training camp where Gruden says, “With the knowledge of the system and people knowing one another, hopefully we can take off from there.”
6/9/14 - In focusing on Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, pundits are noticing and commenting on how relaxed he was in recent Skins OTAs (organized team activities). After last season’s rough beginning and ongoing rehab from knee surgery, Griffin was wearing a bulky knee brace, which limited his mobility; this year he’s not wearing the brace and he appears a different player in the Skins backfield. Plus, he’s not the focus of a lot of press coverage this spring, which is certainly a burden off his shoulders that he doesn’t need in preparing for his third season as Redskins starting quarterback.
6/3/14 - For many seasons, the Washington Redskins’ receiving corps has been Santana Moss and a cast of thousands. But with the advance of age – Moss turned 35 over the weekend – and the acquisition of DeSean Jackson from Philadelphia, the question stands now: will Moss continue to play a key role in yet another offensive scheme, this time for new Skins coach Jay Gruden? Moss is on a one year contract, but he is expected to be insurance in case Leonard Hankerson is not sufficiently healthy to start the regular season, or rookie Ryan Grant fails to develop as quickly as the team would like.
5/27/14 - Washington Redskins general manager Bruce Allen added another title to his business card, as on May 26, team president Dan Snyder announced on Twitter that Allen would also assume the title of team president. In another tweet, Snyder was quoted as saying, “I think the world of Bruce Allen and giving him both titles is appropriate.” Allen has been Redskins GM since 2009; prior to that, he had been Tampa Bay’s general manager from 2004-08, and before that, an executive with Oakland from 1996-2003. Allen also crafted the team’s response to the group of U.S. senators who wrote to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell recently regarding the use of the Redskins nickname.
5/19/14 - The schedule is out, the draft is over, and now it’s time for the Washington Redskins to get down to business and get ready for the season. Thanks to the trade two seasons ago that allowed the Skins to draft Robert Griffin III, they had no first round draft pick this year, and the Skins traded their higher second-round pick for another third-round draft pick later, then used their other second-rounder to pick up Stanford linebacker Trent Murphy; followed by a pair of offensive linemen in the third round. Interestingly enough, the Skins drafted a placekicker with their last pick in the seventh round, despite he fact they have a solid veteran at the position.
5/12/14- The Washington Redskins were concerned with adding depth to their roster in the 2014 NFL Draft, so it was not a huge disadvantage that the franchise was left without a first round pick. Washington traded out of the No. 34 overall position in favor of another third round choice; as a result, the Redskins added Stanford LB Trent Murphy and two OLs in Morgan Moses and Spencer Long. These picks are intended to provide flexibility for the future of the team, and the franchise looks to fill other holes (safety, DL) via undrafted college free agents. See how the team comes up when all is said and done with Washington Redskins tickets!
4/16/14 - You've got to catch the Washington Redskins during preseason this year. Washington will debut DeSean Jackson in his first game as a Redskin after being cast off by Philadelphia in the offseason. Additionally, this will mark RG3's first preseason appearance in two years—missing last season's due to knee surgery. See how he fares when pitted against the New England Patriots and their new cornerback Darrelle Revis in their first preseason game of the year. Following their Week 1 matchup, the Skins will host the Cleveland Browns on Aug 18, and in Week 4, they'll travel to Tampa Bay to take on the Buccaneers Aug 28.
2/11/14 – The big question for the Redskins is whether or not RGIII can get back to his rookie season ways. This offseason, the former Heisman Trophy winner will be able to prepare for the upcoming season in its entirety – with a new coaching staff. The new look will hopefully carry the offense to its old ways, as the team looks to get back to the postseason this year. The 2014 Washington Redskins schedule features five games against teams that made the postseason last year including: Philadelphia Eagles and Seattle Seahawks at home & Philadelphia, San Francisco 49ers, and Indianapolis Colts on the road. In addition they’ll face the Arizona Cardinals who did not make the NFL Playoffs but did accumulate 10 wins.
12/16/13 - The Washington Redskins showed some signs of life yesterday, in their 26-27 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Kirk Cousins was admirable in place of the benched RG3, but was unable to make a crucial two-point conversion to give his team the victory. Still, Washington played messy, allowing Atlanta to score 20 points off of their seven turnovers. Next week, the Redskins will travel back to the Nation’s capital and go head to head against the Dallas Cowboys. Washington Redskins tickets are $24 to get in and see if the boys can put the nail in the coffin on the Cowboys’ season.
12/9/13 - The Kansas City Chiefs sent the Washington Redskins, and their fans, reeling after Sunday’s 45-10 rout on home turf. Washington’s defense allowed KC to score on the first four possessions, while special teams fell apart, effectively sealing the squads doomed fate early on in the game. Things got uglier from there and RG3 was benched for his first time this year, after taking 5 sacks and throwing his twelfth pick of the season. Following the Redskins' disastrous loss for the fifth game in a row, and a disgruntled relationship between franchise owner Dan Snyder and Mike Shanahan, it’s safe to say the head coach's days are numbered. Washington Redskins tickets are $28 when they visit the Atlanta Falcons in the Georgia Dome.
12/3/13 - The Washington Redskins are in trouble after their 24-17 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday. Despite an impressive start, racking up a 14-0 lead, the second half was a different story. A number of penalties to Moss, Hall and Garcon and a dreaded snap by Kyle Nelson mitigated a brighter performance by RG3, in addition to an obvious missed call by the officials on the Redskins 1st down on their final drive (which could’ve tied the game). The ref's admitted mistake left Mike Shanahan fuming, as his team is now mathematically out of postseason play with four games remaining. The Chiefs are on the horizon, a viable win opportunity, as Kansas City has been on a late season slide. Washington Redskins tickets feature a bargain get-in price, just $5 this Sunday!
11/26/13 - Things are slipping away fast from the Washington Redskins, who were crushed by the San Francisco 49ers in last night’s game at home (27-6). Colin Kaepernick bested RG3 in the young and mobile QB showdown, as the defense crumbled, continuously leaving Griffin on the ground through the course of Monday’s game. The Redskins have plummeted to last in the NFC East with three straight losses, but all that may change when they face division opponents the New York Giants (just one game ahead) this Sunday! Check out Washington Redskins tickets to see RG3 pick up the team and bounce back for just $16!
11/18/13- The Washington Redskins are the team that has most recently fallen prey to the surging Philadelphia Eagles, losing 16-24 yesterday. Despite a rallying comeback, scoring 16 points in the 4th, RG3 heaved a dreadful TD pass that was intercepted by Brandon Boykin, proving to be the final nail in Sunday’s coffin. The Redskins have a chance to win at home when they host the San Francisco 49ers in Week 12. Washington Redskins tickets for the scrambling Kaepernick-RG3 face off are just $24 to get in and $172 on average.
11/11/13 - The Washington Redskins blew a big first half lead, falling 27-34 to the Minnesota Vikings in Thursday night's upset. Last season, the team was 3-6, and won their final seven games to come out on top in the NFC East; though they are sitting in the same situation this time around, things are looking more dismal than before. The defense allowed 20 unanswered points to the easily targeted Vikings, and there are far more imposing teams on the horizon. Still, head coach Mike Shanahan will try a repeat of last year’s comeback, starting in Week 11 when RG3 and the boys have a chance to turn things around. Washington Redskins tickets for when they pay a visit to the Philadelphia Eagles are one of the cheapest get-in seats, at just $7!
11/4/13 - The Washington Redskins pulled away with a win over the San Diego Chargers, 30-24, on Sunday in overtime. In what was another close game yesterday, fullback Darrel Young had career-high three touchdowns, working with RG3 to push past the Chargers in OT on a 4-yard run off their first possession. Despite a controversial play, which would have sent San Diego over Washington in the fourth, the ‘Skins persisted and are now .500. Washington is on a short week, with an upcoming game against the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday. Washington Redskins tickets have the cheapest get-in price at only $4, and are $63 on average to watch the action in Minneapolis.
10/28/13 - The Washington Redskins suffered a crushing loss on Sunday to the Denver Broncos, 21-45, spoiling former Broncos’ coach Mike Shanahan’s homecoming. Despite tying the game through halftime, and playing like a confident squad, the Redskins fell prey to the Broncos, who overcame 4 turnovers to score 38 consecutive points in the second half, blitzing past the Redskins strong start. The Redskins defense was able to make plays and create crucial turnovers, but Pierre Garcon’s early one handed highlight-reel catch proved to be the most action the team saw on the day, and the offense was essentially shut-out in the last two quarters: RGIII threw 15 of 30 and 132 yards and two interceptions, leaving the game off a bum knee, finishing a messy and indecisive game for the young QB. At 2-5 the Redskins will next host the San Diego Chargers at home for a chance at improvement. Washington Redskins tickets were the second priciest of last week; prices are now down to just $19 to get in.
10/21/13 - The Washington Redskins have bounced back from last week’s loss to the Dallas Cowboys, with an impressive 41-45 Sunday victory over the Chicago Bears. In what was a roller coaster, high-scoring game from both offenses RG3, maximized on a vulnerable Bears squad with the absence of Jay Cutler (who left the game with a torn groin injury), scoring their most points since 2005. RG3 has found his rhythm, legs and targets (in rookie tight end Jordan Reed), completing 18 of 29 passes for 298 yards, 84 yards rushing and two touchdowns. This was a huge win to a sinking Skins team, who were floundering in the NFC East (coming into Sunday 1-4), boosting morale and hope in their young QB. The most exciting moment of the night came from Roy Helu, who made a 3-yard touchdown with 45 seconds left on the clock, securing a much needed victory. Next week, the Redskins will face other formidable foes, the Denver Broncos at Sports Authority Field in Colorado. Washington Redskins tickers are the second highest priced seats of the week, averaging a lofty $433.
10/15/13 - The Washington Redskins and Robert Griffin III have prolonged their downward spiral, following their Week 6 beating by the Dallas Cowboys. Holes in their offensive line were a paramount disappointment, allowing mounting pressure on RGIII who, when unable to run the ball, was forced to make atrocious passes. Uninspired performances from all sides of the offense attributed to the 16-31 loss, including running backs Alfred Morris and Roy Helu Jr., and a quiet performance by veteran Pierre Garcon. The clock is ticking for Washington to get in sync for a postseason chance. The 1-4 Redskins will have home field advantage when they take on the Chicago Bears, hot of the heels of their Thursday night victory over the New York Giants, next Sunday. Washington Redskins tickets for their Week 7 opportunity start at $32 and average $165.
10/8/13 - The Washington Redskins will be coming back from their bye week, looking to improve their 1-3 standing in a quiet NFC East division, to face the Dallas Cowboys. In Week 4, the Redskins accomplished their must-win game over the Oakland Raiders and quarterback RGIII seems to have found his legs again, slowly returning to his old self post-ACL surgery from the injury accrued last season. Amidst the PR disaster that is the Redskins name-change controversy, RGIII and the boys will continue to ride it all out on the road against the Cowboys, whose morale was beaten in a crushing defeat by the Denver Broncos on Sunday. The Washington Redskins schedule will be unforgiving in the next couple weeks, as they face a battering of formidable quarterbacks: Tony Romo, Jay Cutler, Peyton Manning and Philip Rivers. Washington Redskins tickets for their Week 6 Sunday matchup against the Dallas Cowboys are a low $24 to get in, and jump to $241 on average.
10/1/13 - The Redskins finally ended their winless 0-3 record with a Sunday victory over the Oakland Raiders. The Redskins defense stepped it up, as defensive end Ryan Kerrigan stated “seven was kind of the magic number,” sacking backup quarterback for the Raiders, Matt Flynn, seven times, scoring seven points on defense, and giving up only seven points. RGIII may be getting his groove back, completing 18 out of 31 attempted passes, with no interceptions for 227 yards, and throwing for one touchdown. This was a must win for the Washington Redskins, who are now entering their bye week. The Redskins will come back Sunday night of Week 6, to play the Cowboys at Dallas.
9/24/13 - RGIII and the Redskins have fallen to 0-3, and have set the record for the most yards allowed in the first three games than any other team in NFL history. Lots of talk is surrounding this team and quarterback RGIII, who is playing on a troublesome knee, but it is the defense that must clean up their game if the Redskins have any hope of clinching an NFC east title. They have the opportunity to accomplish this when they travel to Oakland to play the Raiders, who are on a short week after suffering a loss to the Broncos on Monday. Get in to see the action for $59.
Washington Redskins 2014 Season
The Washington Redskins schedule is filled with key road games
this season! Week 3 has the Skins visiting Philadelphia (avg. $272) for DeSean Jackson’s return. Ten weeks later, RG III and Andrew Luck (two top picks in the 2012 draft) will face off for the first time. While Luck has the advantage (22-10) in his career, the Redskins quarterback has been focusing on elevating his game this offseason, bonding with his receivers, tight ends, and running backs away from Redskins Park. Will the team chemistry propel Washington through the regular season? Find out with Redskins tickets averaging $294, 14 percent more than last year following the release of the NFL schedule. The most in-demand game at FedEx Field this year is the season-closer against the Dallas Cowboys (avg. $314) but a must-see is December 20 against the Philadelphia Eagles (avg. $259) as the NFL scheduled a non-holiday Saturday matchup for the first time in nearly ten years!
Whither RG3? Fans of that unifying force in the National Capital Region, the Washington Redskins, have their fingers crossed that Robert Griffin III, the star quarterback who lifted the Skins all the way to the NFC East championship and their first postseason win in years, will be fully recovered by the time the season starts in earnest in September. And, by all indications, Skins fans should get their wish. Philadelphia Eagles vs. Washington Redskins tickets to the Monday Night Football home opener on September 9th start at only $48 in the 400 level. 100 level tickets range from $114 in the end zones up to $687 at the 50-yard line on the Redskins sideline.
Griffin was a strong presence at spring organized team activities (OTAs), and his rehab is well on track. However, should there be a setback, Burgundy-and-Gold fans can take heart that Kirk Cousins, another second year QB, can move the ball. Also hoping to avoid the sophomore jinx is surprising running back Alfred Morris, who ran for a team rookie record 1613 yards last season. Leading wide receiver Pierre Garcon is also looking for increased success in the Skins offense. All contributed to the Redskins winning 10 regular season games last season, including the team's 1st place finish in the tough NFC East. Division rivals Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, and Philadelphia Eagles have already been circled on the 2013 Redskins schedule.
On the other side of the ball, the Redskins hope to get back their key linebacker, Brian Orakpo, who returns after successful surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle. Special teams feature kicker Kai Forbath, who set an NFL record last year with 17 straight made field goals to start his NFL career; and Saverio (Sav) Rocca, an Aussie Rules footballer turned booming NFL punter. All in all, Skins fans have a lot of hope riding on the 2013 season, building on last year's successes; expect the FedEx Field faithful to be singing “Hail to the Redskins” many, many times this season.
