The Washington Redskins had a stellar offseason. But that doesn’t matter unless they match up with everybody else.
The NFC East is a very tough division to predict. Almost every year over the past two decades, the division has witnessed a different winner from the season prior. The Washington Redskins recently scored on this unpredictability, winning the division in 2015. Since then, the Cowboys and Eagles have both gotten their share.
The Washington Redskins division is consistently competitive, and it’s shaping up to be that way in 2018 as well. The Philadelphia Eagles are clearly the team to beat. Less than a year removed from their first Super Bowl in franchise history, the Eagles are clicking under Doug Pederson, and they only got better in the offseason.
The Giants and Cowboys have more uncertainty surrounding their 2018 hopes; The Washington Redskins can easily match up with those teams, and there is a way they can compete against the Eagles, and prevent the birds from putting a lock on the NFC East. The Washington Redskins play these teams six times; those six games will be key to any playoff scenario that might occur.
In this episode of the Riggo’s Rag Podcast, Nathan Britton and I look into how the Washington Redskins match up against each NFC East, and how each team’s roster stands after a full offseason of acquisitions. You can check out the podcast below, and you can also view our post-Draft content as well!

In this podcast, we look at how. Give it a listen. It’s time to pod up.
