2014 Redskins Schedule – DeSean Jackson’s Revenge: Here are the weeks when new Redskin DeSean Jackson gets to face off against his old team the Philadelphia Eagles.
Week 3 – Sep. 21 – 1:00 pm – Redskins at Eagles – Fox
Week 16 – Dec. 20 – 4:30 pm – Eagles at Redskins – NFL Network (Saturday)
The Redskins will face NFC East division rivals the Philadelphia Eagles in weeks 3 and 16 of the 2014 NFL Season. But there will be a drastic difference between the two teams, as former Redskins killer, wide receiver DeSean Jackson will now do his best to light up the Eagles defense as a Redskin.
The Eagles unceremoniously cut Jackson, shortly after he was accused in a news report of having affiliations with a gang. Jackson denied the allegations, and stated he was told by Eagles head coach Chip Kelly that it was best for the two sides to go their separate ways, and for him to gauge the interest of the other 31 teams in the NFL.
But it was the Redskins who showed the most interest, and were the only team that Jackson visited before signing. And now with the addition of Jackson, the Redskins may have what amounts to the best wide receiving unit in the NFC East. Emotions will be running high, and the football world’s eyes will be focused on how both these games turn out.
Mark your calendars, because there’s going to be fire works.
