Coming off a division championship season, the Washington Redskins did not have a whole lot to fix in the offseason.
When the 2013 NFL schedule was released on Thursday night, it painted a pretty good picture of what the next season will be for Washington—hard.
According to NFL.com, the Redskins are 18th overall in terms of strength of schedule. But when you look at the teams they have to play, it doesn’t seem so easy. They will travel to Lambeau to take on the powerhouse Green Bay Packers as well as take a trip to Mile High to face the stout defense and potent offense of the Denver Broncos.
While the schedule certainly has winnable games, it looks like it will be a tough road to repeat for Washington in 2013.
In Robert Griffin III’s second season, he will look to improve on an impressive rookie campaign, but he will be coming off ACL surgery and no one is quite sure what to expect.
One thing is for sure: Winning the NFC East crown for the second year in a row will be no easy feat.
