You Know Best: Predict Redskins Season

Enough with hearing what NFL “experts” want to say on the tube, it’s your turn to predict the upcoming season Redskins fans!

We asked you the same question during the offseason, but with so much happening in such a short span (trust me I’d know with the amount of news then compared to now) we want to ask the question now that football is back. Go to Redskins.com’s homepage at the very bottom and you’ll see the poll presented by Acela.

As seen on Thursday night even without a good chunk of the starters taking the field, the Redskins are going to be a team others don’t want to see on the schedule.

With Kirk Cousins leading the way to start the game, and Pat White showing everyone that he hasn’t missed a (sprinting) step, the offense clicked on all cylinders. There were a few drops from the wide receivers here and there, but those are easily correctable mistakes. Roy Helu Jr. looked fully healed and ready to add just another element to a potent offense.

On the defensive side, well there are still a lot of moving parts in terms of position depth and returns from injury, but don’t discredit their opportunistic mentality. Give them a little and they’ll take a whole lot more. Plus we have only seen the three rookies in limited preseason action.

What that said, here’s some second level nuggest for all you stat geeks about each matchup thanks to the Redskins Public Relations Department that you should bear in mind when making your choice:

(It’s On The Homepage Now)

Week 1 vs. Eagles

–Shanahan is 3-0 in season openers with the Redskins. With a win in the 2013 season opener, Shanahan would become only the second coach in team history to win his first four season openers with the Redskins, joining George Allen, who won his first six season openers from 1971-76.

Week 2 @ Packers

— The Redskins are seeking their first road win in Green Bay since defeating the Packers, 20-17, on Oct. 23, 1988.

Week 3 vs. Lions

— The Redskins have scored 27 or more points in 10 of the 13 last home games held against the Lions.

Week 4 @ Raiders 

— Shanahan is 21-7 all-time against the Raiders with a 10-4 record in games played in California.

Week 6 @ Cowboys

— A win at Cowboys Stadium would give the Redskins consecutive road victories against the Cowboys for the first time since winning three consecutive road games against Dallas across the 1987-89 seasons.

Week 7 vs. Bears

— The Redskins will attempt to take the lead in their all-time series record against the Bears. Including postseason play, the all-time series between the Redskins and Bears is locked at 23-23-1.

Week 8 @ Broncos

— The Redskins’ trip to Denver will mark Shanahan’s return to the city in which he served as Head Coach from 1995-2008. Shanahan will be facing Denver as a head coach for the first time since Sept. 24, 1989 as coach of the Los Angeles Raiders.

Week 9 vs. Chargers

— The Redskins are 6-3 all-time against the Chargers, including a 4-1 record in games played at home.

Week 10 @ Vikings

— The Redskins hold a 12-10 all-time series edge against the Vikings, including postseason play. The Redskins defeated the Vikings last season, 38-26, on Oct. 14, 2012.

Week 11 @ Eagles

— Including postseason play, the Redskins are 81-70-5 all-time against the Eagles. The Redskins’ 81 wins against the Eagles all-time are their most against any opponent.

Week 12 vs. 49ers

— A win would be the Redskins’ first against San Francisco since registering a 52-17 home victory on Oct. 23, 2005.

Week 13 vs. Giants

— With home wins against the Giants in 2011 and 2012, the Redskins are seeking their first three-game home winning streak against the Giants since a four-game winning streak from 1982-85.

Week 14 vs. Chiefs

— A Redskins win would be the team’s second win against the Chiefs all-time and would snap a five-game losing streak to the Chiefs.

Week 15 @ Falcons

— The Redskins are seeking their first victory against the Falcons since recording a 33-31 road win at the Georgia Dome on Sept. 14, 2003.

Week 16 vs. Cowboys

— The Redskins swept the Cowboys last season, the team’s first sweep of the Cowboys since 2005. A sweep of the Cowboys in 2013 would represent the first time in team history the Redskins had swept the Cowboys in consecutive seasons.

Week 17 @ Giants

— This matchup between the Redskins and Giants will be the 164th between the teams all-time, including postseason play. The Giants are the Redskins’ most common opponent.

Vote early, vote late and vote often.

    I think redskins will go 12and 4 for the 2013 season!!

    The SKINS will finish 11/5 and win THE EAST AGAIN because Dallas signed Romo for another 6 years so they will suck for 6 more years the Giants lost too many good players and Philly has a new head coach and they still have Vick

  3. By nikhil chahda on Aug 10, 2013 | Reply

    record will be 9-7

    I based my prediction on the strength of our finish last year taking into account the players we have gotten back from injury and the new talent we picked up in the draft. Based on this I believe we will win 12-13 games in the regular season.

    I’m picking Washington to go 11-5 in 2013. We get the NFC Eastern Championship for the 2nd time in a row (first time since 1983-84 that we have won consecutive division titles) and we get a playoff win. Teams are not going to want to play us and we’ll be a dreaded opponent at FedEx Field.

    I’ve gone over the schedule pretty extensively, and run through a few scenarios, and I come out with the redskins going 12-4 every time. I only see us as underdogs in 4 games (packers, broncos, 9ers, and falcons). Of those four I am relatively certain we will win at least one. In my opinion, we have a great shot to beat the 9ers at home (Seattle exposed them late last year and I no longer see them as juggernauts). I also have a strong feeling that we will lose at either Dallas or ny this year. As much as I hate to say it I’m thinking Dallas. Seriously, when’s the last time we swept them 2 years in a row. This is how I came to 12-4 number. However, being that we are the redskins, there is the very real possibility that we will lose a game we should win. Judging by the end of last year, it seems like the redskins have developed a winning mentality, but a defeat at the hands of a lesser opponent is still possible. That would put us at 11-5, and most likely division champs. Anyway, the future looks bright. We have players coming back off injury, and young playmakers in the secondary now. Can’t wait til 9/9/13!!! HTTR!!!!!!

    I agree with Dan 11-5. 4-2 in the Div. with losses to Atlanta SF and Denver, We have a good possibility of 12 or 13 but 11 should be a good call. I did predict the 10-6 last yr causing a Packer fan to buy an RGIII jersey and wear it Sep 15th

    I have the ‘Skins going 10 and 6 on the regular season.
    I think they can dominate the division, but there are several road games i.e. Packers, Falcons and Broncos where they might struggle. 10 -6 should get us the division and a ticket to the playoffs. The question then, will center around the health of the team. If Robert is healthy, Rac is healthy and London stays healthy, the D Backfield begins to jell and Trent and the boys up front stay healthy, we will be in position for our forth Lombardi Trophy.

    I see us either 10-6 or 9-7. Here is how it breaks down:

    4-2 in the div – Splits with Dal and NY and sweep philly.

    Other Ls – Pack, Den, 49ers, Atl,

    Minn is a 50/50. We win 10-6 lose 9-7. JMO!!

    we are going to the big game

  12. By John Bertetti on Aug 12, 2013 | Reply

    I say 10-6 or 11-5.

    Washington will go 12-4 only loosing two games out of conference play. One to.the Denver Broncos in a nail biter and the other San Francisco in a classic smash mouth game. But the good thing is if the defense can stay healty and rookies step.up pay backs hurt especially in the playoffs and even The Super Bowl. Yes I said it Denver Washington

    RGIII is already complaining about the coach and his offense….here we go again! How many times do we have a QB who thinks he knows best…sit him on the beach and let Cousins QB.


  15. By Scott Williams on Aug 12, 2013 | Reply

    We will go 11-5. 4-2 Div with losses to SF ATL and Den. I took 10-6 last yr. in a game a buddy and I came up with and I won. By end of preseason game 4 each person has to chose their teams season record and each teams record represented by each player. The closest person to get all records correct got $20 from each person plus each wk a 20oz beverage if 1 team wins and the other loses was on the line. A packer fan said no way Redskins could get 10 wins and I said no way Packers got 12 wins so we put up a $100 RGIII jersey against a $100 Rodgers jersey if the team got the wins. It will be nice seeing a Packer fan in Redskin colors Sep 15th

    They way they are looking I see at least a 12-4 regular season. I’m finding more redskin fanatics every day. Don’t make me a liar.

    Staying healthy will be the reason for the skins to win. they have the manpower to overcome most problems. May need help on defense ??
