Last night, the NFL released the schedules for all 32 teams for the upcoming year. With must see TV in Robert Griffin III, Alfred Morris, and one of the best linebacking units in the league, the Redskins got the maximum number of prime-time games (five) possible.
The 2012 NFC East champs will open at FedExField against the Philadelphia Eagles. And yes, it will be in prime-time for the whole country to see on Monday Night Football.
Do you recall what happened the last time the Burgundy and Gold were at home in a prime-time regular season matchup against an NFC East foe?
Redskins 28-Cowboys 18. Redskins win the NFC East Title and advance to the playoffs. The Cowboys..well they went home and watched the playoffs.
Find out how you can relive some of the historic moments from that night here:
Recently, the NFL gave fans the chance to vote for a rookie performance from the past few seasons that they’d want to see played again.
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (2011), Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford (2009), Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson were all nominees after special performances in their debuts.
None of them won.
In fact, no quarterback won.
While Robert Griffin III grabbed every headline imaginable during his quest to claim the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year award, it was his fellow 2012 draft member that stole the show that night.
With a 200 yard, three touchdown showcase against the Cowboys, not only did No. 46 will the Redskins to the playoffs, he did it by smashing the single-season franchise rushing record.
So if you don’t have any plans this Saturday night tune in to NFL Network at 8pm to relive the guys claiming their first division crown in 13 years.
Hail to the Redskins!
