Washington Redskins Schedule: A Month-By-Month Look
October: 4 Games
This month in notable because the Redskins bye week falls within it. Unfortunately, the team will be off in Week 5 this season. Normally, teams fare better with a middle-late bye week, so that could put the Redskins at a disadvantage.

The other disadvantage that the Redskins face is that they will be taking on the Chiefs in Arrowhead Stadium just before the bye. The Chiefs have a terrific homefield advantage, and the Monday Night Football clash will almost certainly be a sell-out. Washington will have to put their best foot forward and give everything that they have before their week off. A win is possible, but this will be the most difficult of the first four games.
After the bye, the Redskins will take on another one of their former offensive coordinators in Kyle Shanahan. The San Francisco 49ers will come to town in what should be an easy win for the Skins. Even if Shanahan has the squad playing their best, the Redskins are still far more talented. The most notable story to watch during this week will be how Kirk Cousins interacts with Shanahan.
In Week 7 and 8, the Redskins take on NFC East rivals once again. They finish up their season series with the Eagles in former week, playing yet another primetime game (No. 3 of five). The Monday Night Football clash will be hugely important, as it will give one team a chance to deal their opponents two losses in the hyper competitive NFC East.
In Week 8, it’s a rivalry clash with the Cowboys at home. Though the team will be on a short week, they will have a chance to take down the Cowboys, as the team’s defense has lost some key playmakers this offseason.
