2013 regular-season schedule will be announced at 8 pm ET on Thursday (April 18).— Greg Aiello (@gregaiello) April 16, 2013
Earlier this month the Redskins released their preseason schedule, a slate that includes a home game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday August 18. Other games at Tennessee and at Tampa Bay and home against the Buffalo Bills do not yet have finalized dates.
What Redskins fans already know is who the team will play in the regular season, and what games will be on the road. Of course the Skins will play their NFC East opponents Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants both at home and on the road.
Beyond the division games, Washington will face the Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Kansas City Chiefs, San Diego Chargers, and the San Francisco 49ers all at home.
The Redskins will travel for games against the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, Denver Broncos, Oakland Raiders, and the Atlanta Falcons.
