Weeks 5-8

28. 51. 19. 58. Final

The Redskins welcome back former assistant Sean McVay to D.C. for the first time since he left to become the head coach of the Rams in 2017. Los Angeles opened 3-0 this past season but finished 9-7 and wound up missing the playoffs. The franchise has lost a number of star players but still has too much talent for the re-tooling ‘Skins.

26. 58. 24. 31. Final

Washington actually knocked off the Giants at MetLife Stadium back in 2018 but it was a much different story this past season as the club was humbled, 24-3, in Week 4. The Redskins’ defense allowed 164 yards rushing to New York, who played without Saquon Barkley. But look for Ron Rivera’s team to come up with a surprise victory.

58. Final. 19. 123. 21

A year ago in Week 2, Washington held an early lead over their longtime rivals from the Lone Star State but eventually fell, 31-21. In fact, the Redskins were just 2-7 at home vs. the hated Dallas Cowboys dating back to 2011. But this time around, Ron Rivera’s team gets a late field goal for a rare recent victory in this series.

34. 31. 30. 58. Final

It was a match-up between 2019 first-round quarterbacks Daniel Jones and Dwayne Haskins. And it wound up being one of the wilder games of this past season. The Redskins fell at home in overtime, 41-35, in Week 16. For the second straight year, Big Blue outlasts the host Redskins in a high-scoring affair.
