2014 Washington Redskins Road Schedule
Though 2013 ended up being an up-and-down season for the Redskins, Washington
is reloaded with an exciting roster and fans are eager to watch Robert Griffin III take the next step forward in his development,
making for another season that is sure to be absolutely filled to the brim with highlight-reel action. Though the home games
at FedEx Field are obviously going to be packed with fanfare all season long as the Redskins look to make their move in the
NFC East, you also don't want to make the mistake of limiting yourself to only half of the big games. On the road, Redskins'
fans can see their favorite team from a completely different angle, providing more than enough incentive to watch the 'Skins
silence a few home crowds this season.
Of course, the Redskins will have a huge matchup on their hands when they head
to New Jersey this season to take on the New York Giants, one of their fiercest division rivals. The Giants are coming off
a tough 2013 season, and surely the G-Men will be looking to bounce back by taking down their divisional foes. That's why
the Dec. 14 matchup between the Redskins and Giants is sure to be circled on many fan calendars, but fans also don't have
to wait until then to find a few other huge road games. The Redskins always look forward to heading to Texas to take on the
Dallas Cowboys, which will go down in an intense Monday Night Football matchup on Oct. 27. A road game in Philly on Sept.
21 will give an early-season division rivalry matchup as well, and you can count on there being plenty of Redskins fans in
the stands come kick-off.
Outside of the division, there are also many other riveting road matchups that will have the
attention of fans around D.C. A road game against the Cardinals on Oct. 12 will be a nice test for the Redskins, as will a
Nov. 2 matchup against the Vikings in Minnesota and a Nov. 23 battle against the Niners in San Fran. All in all, the 2014
is absolutely packed with opportunities all over the country for Redskins' fans to hit the road and see, providing more than
enough incentive to snag your team gear and see your favorite team the way they were meant to be seen.
Redskins Team Info
Looking to improve coming off of a tough 2013 campaign, the Redskins appear to have done exactly
that, particularly in the passing game. Though it's Alfred Morris giving them consistency on the ground, fans are eager to
see the one-two combination of Pierre Garcon and new addition DeSean Jackson, who now joins the Redskins' passing attack after
years of tormenting their defense playing for the Eagles. Playing in the NFC East never makes for an easy schedule, but with
a star player like RGIII anything is possible, and Redskins are eagerly looking forward to seeing their team light up the
scoreboard and make some serious noise in one of the toughest divisions in football.

over the country this season to play eight games away from home, and only the most loyal and dedicated Skins fans will be
there to cheer on their favorite team. Imagine being there when a Washington player turns the tide of a road game this season,
silencing a crowd filled with opposing fans. When you get to see that, you'll understand loud and clear why seeing your favorite

Washington Redskins History
Washington Redskins franchise was originally founded in 1932 as the Boston Braves, giving this franchise a long and storied
tradition that dates back generations. The team changed their name to the Redskins the following year and moved to Washington
D.C. in 1937, and fans in the nation's capital have been rooting for this team ever since. The Redskins have won three Super
Bowls, with the championships coming in 1982, 1987 and 1991. Though it's been a little while since they've contended for the
ultimate prize, they have an exciting nucleus that has had fans buzzing in a big way over the last couple of seasons, and
now the Redskins will be looking to take that next step towards bringing the Vince Lombardi Trophy back to D.C.
Did you know that Alfred Morris holds the single-season rushing record for the Redskins?
a decidedly passing league these days, Morris had no problem bursting through defenses in 2012 on his way to a franchise-best
1,613 yards during his head-turning rookie season. Not bad for a sixth round draft pick that year.
