11 young talents the Redskins will face during the 2020 NFL season
By Jonathan Eig
The Redskins are facing a lot of young talent in 2020. Here’s a look at 11 of the talents age 27 or below on the opponents they’ll face this year.
The NFL schedule release is just a couple of days away. So, I thought I’d take a few minutes today to highlight 11 exciting players on opposing teams that Redskins will be playing this year. I’m picking one from each of the non-divisional opponents (plus one bonus).
I’m not bothering with the Cowboys, Giants, or Eagles because I figure you know all their players. And, by the way, they have no exciting players. Not a single one. I mean, sure, they have a few good players. Zeke is good. But exciting? His hair is cool – I’ll give him that.
You know what is fun about the Cowboys, though? The way that every year, they think they are going to be a good team. Like a Super Bowl contender. And that’s funny because, well – they’re not. True – they have the greatest line in the history of football, and the greatest skill players in the history of football, and the greatest defense in the history … you get the point.

But the thing is, they manage to not actually win any important games. Sure, they’ve been better than the Redskins for a while now, but at least Redskins fans aren’t so charmingly self-delusional.
And the Giants? I can’t do it. They may have won a lot of games over the years, but they haven’t been exciting since the days of LT. I don’t hate them or anything. It’s hard to hate them. They’re kind of like a goofy kid brother, always trying to keep up with the big kids. Actually, you know who they’re like? Eli Manning.
Now the Eagles – I could write about the Eagles. Truth be told, they’re my favorite of the Redskins’ three main rivals. I mean, I hate them. But I much prefer them to the Cowboys as a villain. They get even less respect than the Redskins, and it shows. I was kind of happy when they finally got their Super Bowl. A couple more and they can no longer occupy the bottom rung of the NFC East Super Bowl ladder.
But as I said, I’m not writing about any of them. Instead, here is a young player (age 27 or below) from each of the Redskins’ non-divisional opponents who you might want to keep your eyes on.
