Report: Redskins to host first ever Thanksgiving game against NY Giants

Report: Redskins to host first ever Thanksgiving game against NY Giants

After playing in Dallas on Thanksgiving in 2016, most thought the Redskins would be able to enjoy the national holiday with their families this season. That will not be the case, however, as Washington will host the New York Giants in the third NFL game of the day, according to a report from The Washington Post.

Redskins officials could not confirm the Thanksgiving contest.

The Redskins have never hosted a Thanksgiving game in the team's history. Historically, only the Lions and Cowboys host games on Thanksgiving, though that began to change in 2006 when the NFL introduced a third, night game on the holiday.

Redskins fans have grown quite used to the Thanksgiving games, as the team has faced the Cowboys eight times on the holiday, as well as one trip to Detroit on Turkey Day. 

Besides the dramatic change in routine brought on by the Thursday game, the 'Skins have fared poorly in Thanksgiving games. Last season, the Burgundy and Gold fell 31-26 to the Cowboys, and Washington holds just a 2-7 record in nine contests on the holiday.

The full NFL schedule will be released Thursday night at 8 p.m. While much of the schedule remains a mystery until the reveal, home and away opponents have already been decided. The Redskins will face the Giants, Eagles and Cowboys both home and away. Road trips are scheduled to play the Chargers, Rams, Seahawks, Chiefs and Saints. Home tilts are scheduled against the Raiders, Broncos, Cardinals, 49ers and Vikings.

Mic'd up: This is what it sounds like as the Redskins running backs go through drills

Mic'd up: This is what it sounds like as the Redskins running backs go through drills

During a chat on the #RedskinsTalk podcast last month, Washington's running back coach Randy Jordan clued in CSN Redskins Insider JP Finlay about the way he teaches his players and the things he wants to see from them.

Now, though, thanks to an exclusive Redskins Nation video, you have a chance to truly watch and listen to how Jordan and his students approach their on-field work.

In this all-access Mic'd Up segment (which was filmed at minicamp and which you can watch in the player above), you'll see the assistant encourage Samaje Perine, correct Matt Jones and compliment Rob Kelley. You'll also hear every grunt, bump and cut, an important ingredient that these types of packages must have.

It's clear from the footage that Jordan cares about the details. Now, don't blow this assignment, and go check out the video above.
