Robert Griffin III cratered in his bid to return early from a knee injury, and the Washington Redskins went down with him. A poor season led to the firing of Mike Shanahan, and suddenly the Washington faithful are putting their trust in new head coach Jay Gruden. Quickly landing stud receiver DeSean Jackson off the open market, it’s safe to say the trust is quickly growing.
The Redskins appear primed for a rebound season in 2014, but if they are to truly take a step back toward the playoffs, they’ll need to do better than just 2-6 at home like they did a year ago. They’ll take on the Rams, Seahawks, Panthers, Jaguars and Titans in their bid to do so.
The Washington Redskins schedule should prove to be a little more difficult on the road, as they’ll try to improve on last year’s 1-7 road record with games against the Cardinals, 49ers, Packers, Texans and Colts.
