Week 9: Sunday, Nov. Week Sunday, Nov. Week 14 : Sunday, Dec. Week Sunday, Dec. For the first time since signing with the Minnesota Vikings, Kirk Cousins faces his former team when the Redskins travel to Minnesota in Week 8.

However, this will be the first time Washington heads to Lambeau Field since , as Washington has hosted the last three meetings. The Redskins opening stretch is very unforgivable.

They open the season on the road against Philadelphia, before hosting the reigning NFC East champion Cowboys in the Week 2 home opener. Washington then travels to New York to face the Giants for their third divisional game in four weeks, before returning home to face the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots in Week 5.

To keep track, that's four playoff teams from a season ago, with a combined record of For the first time since , the Redskins are not playing on Thanksgiving.

That might be a good thing for Washington, as they fell to the Cowboys in Dallas both in and They did defeat the Giants, on Thanksgiving night in , the first home Thanksgiving game ever in Redskins franchise history.

Last year, the Redskins were stuck with an early Week 4 bye. This year it comes right in the middle of the season, Week 10, as the Redskins will be able to rest up before the final stretch of the season.

On paper, Jay Gruden's tenor with the Redskins is nothing to write home about. Through five seasons he holds a record, good enough for a. Looking at that, some may draw the conclusion that Gruden hasn't been what the Redskins need at the helm.

Taking into account the variables Gruden has dealt with throughout the five years, Gantt actually sees him as a "really good" coach.

Doing more with less and working in the middle essentially defines Jay Gruden's career with the Redskins.

Besides his opening year in in which Washington went , Gruden's teams have consistently finished right around the middle of the pack. Despite the numerous records set, the Redskins missed the playoffs, losing 19—10 in a "win and in" situation against the New York Giants in the final week of the season.

Kirk Cousins had his third straight season with 4, passing yards while once again playing under the franchise tag.

For the fifth straight season, the Redskins missed the playoffs, finishing It was also the last season that Cousins was seen in a Redskins uniform before joining the Minnesota Vikings following the season, ending his 6-year tenure with the Redskins.

The Washington Redskins' primary colors are burgundy and gold. Gold face masks were introduced in and remain to this day; previous to that they were grey. From the start of the Joe Gibbs era until , the Redskins were one of three NFL teams that primarily wore their white jerseys at home the others being the Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins.

The tradition of wearing white jerseys over burgundy pants at home, which is considered the "classic" look, was started by Joe Gibbs when he took over as coach in Gibbs was an assistant for the San Diego Chargers in and , and the Chargers wore white at home during the tenure of coach Don Coryell in the late s and early s.

From —, their burgundy jerseys were primarily used when the opposing team decided to wear white at home, which comes mostly against the Dallas Cowboys and occasionally the Philadelphia Eagles , and was normally worn over white pants.

It was worn on the road against other teams that like to wear white at home for games occurring early in the season. From through , the Redskins wore their white jerseys over burgundy pants at home almost exclusively.

In , as part of a league-wide celebration of the NFL's 75th Anniversary, during certain games the Redskins wore special uniforms which emulated the uniforms worn by the team in its inaugural season as the Washington Redskins, Both worn over gold pants, the burgundy jerseys featured gold numbers bordered in white and the white jerseys featured burgundy numbers bordered in gold.

The most distinctive feature of both colors of the jersey was the patches worn on both sleeves, which were a reproduction of the patches worn on the full-length sleeves of the jerseys.

Worn with these uniforms was a plain burgundy helmet with a gold facemask. In , the Redskins wore burgundy for all home games in the preseason and regular season per a decision by Marty Schottenheimer, their coach for that year.

In , the team celebrated the passing of 70 years since its creation as the Boston Braves in , and wore a special home uniform of burgundy jersey over gold pants which roughly resembled the home uniforms used from — The helmets used with this special home uniform during that year were a reproduction of the helmets used by the team from —69, though they wore white at home in Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals and again in Week 17, the latter forcing the Cowboys to use their blue jerseys.

In , when Joe Gibbs became the coach of the Redskins once again, the team switched back to wearing white jerseys at home; in Gibbs's 16 years as head coach, the team never wore burgundy jerseys at home, even wearing a white throwback jersey in Their white jerseys have provided three basic color combinations, two of which have been previously alluded to in this article.

The last combination consists of both white jerseys and pants. That particular combination surfaced in the first game of the season, when the team was coached by Steve Spurrier, during a nationally televised game against the New York Jets , which led many sports fans and Redskins faithful alike to point out that they had never seen that particular combination before.

That year the Redskins wore it two more times. That look didn't appear again until midway through the season when the Redskins wore it in a road game against the St.

The Redskins won six straight games, including one in the playoffs against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, wearing that combination and the local media jokingly pointed out that the reason the Redskins were winning was their use of the white over white combination.

The Redskins continued to wear the white jerseys and white pants into the preseason. In the season, the Redskins started wearing black cleats, something that hadn't been done for quite a while.

It was a surprise because they wore white cleats during the preseason. They would have to wear that color for the rest of the season, because the NFL usually asks teams to choose either black or white cleats to be worn throughout the season.

The decision to return to the classic look may have symbolized a desire by the team to turn a new page on their season, which had been very lackluster previous to that game, the period of success with the white jerseys over white pants having come to an end the previous season.

The move may have also been related to the fact that this home game was the second start and first home start of second-year quarterback Jason Campbell, and that the game and the previous week's game were, in the hopes and perceptions of many Redskins fans, the start of the "Jason Campbell era.

In celebration of the franchise's 75th anniversary, the Redskins wore a special throwback uniform for the September 23, home game against the New York Giants.

Players wore a white jersey in keeping with Gibbs's exclusive use of the color, whereas most other NFL throwback jerseys tend to be dark with 3 burgundy and 2 gold stripes on each sleeve and the 75th anniversary logo on the left chest.

The pants were gold, with one white stripe bordered by a burgundy stripe on each side, running down each side. The helmet was gold-colored with a burgundy "R" logo.

The helmet and uniform styles besides the anniversary patch and the position of the upper-most, "TV", numbers were the same as the ones the franchise used during the —71 seasons.

While this throwback uniform was worn during a home game, it was actually the away uniform for — The helmet was discontinued after the season, while this basic away uniform design, minus the helmet, was used through the season, as well as during most of the season.

Vince Lombardi , who coached the Redskins in before dying during the pre-season, was the inspiration behind the helmet. Lombardi pushed for the logo, which sat inside a white circle enclosed within a burgundy circle border, with Indian feathers hanging down from the side, because of its similarity to the "G" on the helmets worn by his Green Bay Packers for many years.

In a Monday Night Football game against the against the Pittsburgh Steelers in , the Redskins wore a monochrome look by wearing burgundy jerseys over burgundy pants.

The team, starting in the season, would begin to wear the burgundy jersey paired with the throwback style of gold pants, reminiscent of the George Allen era, after wearing white jerseys at home almost exclusively from the s and to the s.

The same combination would be worn at the Giants two weeks later. The following year, the team would wear an updated throwback uniform of the team - notable for a helmet which, rather than being blank or including team insignia, featured a pattern intended to invoke the simple leather helmets worn at the time - in a game against the Carolina Panthers , in honor of the team's first championship season.

In , a newly implemented NFL rule stated that teams could not wear alternate helmets on account of player safety. Due to that, the Redskins would wear the throwbacks with the sticker removed from the regular helmet in a game versus the San Diego Chargers.

Initially, Nike gave the Redskins an all-gold uniform for the Color Rush program, but the team refused to wear it suggesting that the look was garish.

Instead, the Redskins wore burgundy uniforms, pants, socks and cleats for the game against the Cowboys that November. For , the Redskins replaced the gold pants with white pants.

The name and logo of the Washington Redskins is part of a larger controversy regarding the use of Native American names, images and symbols by non-native sports teams, but receives the most public attention due to the prominence of the team being located in the nation's capital and the name itself being defined in current dictionaries of American English as "usually offensive", [73] "disparaging", [74] [75] "insulting", [76] and "taboo".

Native American individuals, tribes and organizations have been questioning the use of the name and image for decades. Over time, the campaign began to focus on Indian names and mascots in sports.

Ben Nighthorse Campbell, former Colorado Senator and only Indigenous member of congress at the time, proposed a bill in the s that entailed the Washington Redskins only being able to build a new stadium on federal land if they discontinued incorporating the use of derogative racial terms.

In response to the continued controversy, the team owner Dan Snyder sent an open letter to fans that was published in The Washington Post on October 9, In the letter Snyder states that the most important meaning of the name Redskins is the association that fans have to memories of their personal history with the team.

Snyder also states that the name was chosen in to honor Native Americans in general and the coach and four players at that time who were Native American; and that in the then coach George Allen consulted with the Red Cloud Athletic Fund on the Pine Ridge reservation when designing the logo.

Several sportscasters on ESPN opted to refuse to use the word Redskins in television broadcasts, after network stated that they did not have to use the term if they found it offensive.

It is not respectful to who we are as Native people. This poll still doesn't make it right. In June , the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board TTAB voted to cancel the six trademarks held by the team in a two to one decision that held that the term "redskins" is disparaging to a "substantial composite of Native Americans".

Tam an Asian-American rock band, " The Slants " appealed the denial of a trademark for their name. Contrary to the Government's contention, trademarks are private, not government speech.

On December 13, , a Native American activist group known as Rising Hearts created several websites that made it appear that the Redskins had agreed to change its name to the Washington Redhawks. The organizers stated that their intention is to stimulate debate that would eventually lead to an actual name change.

In response to the possibility that the team could return to the District of Columbia in a new stadium, a coalition of nine civil rights organizations, including the NAACP, issued a statement in August that such a move should not be made unless the team agrees to drop the Redskins branding, calling it a racial slur.

The Cowboys—Redskins rivalry is a sports rivalry between two NFL teams that have won 31 combined division titles and ten Championships, including eight combined Super Bowls.

In , Dallas was placed in the same division as the Redskins, and from that point on, they have played each other twice during every regular season. Texas oil tycoon Clint Murchison Jr.

Just as the sale was about to be finalized, Marshall called for a change in terms. Murchison was outraged and canceled the whole deal. Breeskin had written the music to the Redskins fight song , now a staple at the stadium.

Halas decided to put the proposition of a Dallas franchise before the NFL owners, which needed to have unanimous approval in order to pass.

The only owner against the proposal was George Preston Marshall. However, Marshall found out that Murchison owned the rights to Washington's fight song, so a deal was finally struck.

If Marshall showed his approval of the Dallas franchise, Murchison would return the song. The Cowboys were then founded and began playing in In , the Redskins-Cowboys game on Thanksgiving Day was most-watched regular-season game in Fox history.

The Redskins' policy since Baugh's retirement has been to not retire numbers. However, some numbers are unofficially retired and are usually withheld from being selectable by new players. The following numbers of past Redskins greats fall into that category.

The use of unofficial retired numbers drew controversy during Steve Spurrier 's first year as head coach.

The resulting sports talk furor led to them switching to 17 and 6. After his retirement as assistant GM, Bobby Mitchell blasted the team, for not being considered for GM and was upset that the team would let a player like Leonard Stephens wear his number.

The team's first round selection in the NFL Draft , quarterback Dwayne Haskins , wore number 7 when he played for the Ohio State Buckeyes and asked permission from Theismann to wear the same number, who granted him permission.

It was previously located on a series of white-and-red signs ringing the face of the stadium's mezzanine level. Another version hangs on a large sign on one of the parking garages at Nationals Park.

Edwards, Flaherty, and Gibbs had been honored on signs on the prior version of the Hall of Stars. When the Redskins moved out of RFK Stadium, the signs commemorating the Washington Hall of Stars were left behind and the team began a new tradition of honoring Redskins greats via the "Ring of Fame", a set of signs on the upper level facade at FedExField.

Unlike the Hall of Stars, which honors historical greats from all sports, the Ring of Fame is limited to honoring Redskins greats. The following is a list of members of the Ring of Fame: [] []. In honor of the Redskins' 70th anniversary, on June 13, , a panel selected the 70 Greatest Redskins to honor the players and coaches who were significant on-field contributors to the Redskins five championships and rich history.

They were honored in a weekend of festivities, including a special halftime ceremony during the Redskins' 26—21 win over the Indianapolis Colts.

The list includes three head coaches and 67 players, of which 41 were offensive players, 23 defensive players and three special teams players. Among the 70 Greatest, there are 92 Super Bowl appearances, with 47 going once and 45 playing in more than one.

Also, before the Super Bowl, members of the 70 made 18 World Championship appearances including six that participated in the Redskins' NFL Championship victories in and On August 24, , the Redskins' 80th anniversary, ten more players and personnel were added to the list.

As of the season, Larry Michael is the voice of the Redskins on the radio. He took this role in after longtime announcer Frank Herzog left. Michael is joined by analysts Sonny Jurgensen and Chris Cooley.

Jurgensen is a former Redskins quarterback who has been in broadcasting since he retired from the team in , much of that time spent working for his former team.

Cooley played tight end for the Redskins from until and made the Pro Bowl twice. Cooley replaced Sam Huff , the former Hall of Fame linebacker who played several years with the Redskins, as color commentator following Huff's retirement at the end of the season.

Hovering right around. Part of the reason Gantt is willing to give Gruden praise for records that some coaches would get scolded for revolves around what he's had to work with.

Gruden's time as head coach has been filled with injuries and other dilemmas both on and off the field. In those circumstances, it wouldn't be surprising to see a team completely flounder and spiral out of control.
