Week 1: Redskins at Cardinals

The Redskins begin their season on the road for the first time since 2014, looking to beat Arizona on two straight occasions. Washington hasn't won a season opener since 2012, but they'll be facing a very different Arizona defense this season.

Week 2: Redskins vs. Colts

The home opener will likely feature Andrew Luck under center, as Indianapolis comes to FedExField. The Redskins will be seeking their first home-opener victory in the regular season since 2014, when they defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Week 3: Redskins vs. Packers

The Redskins have faced the Packers in three different capacities over the last three years. They lost a heartbreaker in the playoffs following the 2015 division-winning season, beat them handily in a dominant 2016 Sunday Night Football performance, and got to test their depth in a preseason game last year. Green Bay will make its fourth trip to FedExField in as many years with the strong probability that Aaron Rodgers is back healthy at quarterback.

Week 5: Redskins at Saints

For the second consecutive year, the Redskins will head to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, looking to avenge last year's late-game loss. This should be a showdown of two high-flying offenses and will be the first time the Redskins play in primetime this year.

Week 6: Redskins vs. Panthers

The Redskins host the Panthers after a game two years ago where Washington clawed its way back in home action but ultimately fell short. Though Carolina lost longtime running back Jonathan Stewart, they picked up C.J. Anderson to fill the void and added more wide receiver depth with the addition of Torrey Smith.

Week 7: Redskins vs. Cowboys

The rivalry starts its 2018 chapter at FedExField and Washington will look to rebound after dropping both games to head coach Jason Garrett's side last year. Dallas lost some franchise names this offseason, including Jason Witten, who retired, and Dez Bryant, who was released from his contract. The Cowboys hope signing Allen Hurns and Tavon Austin can help fill those vacancies.

Week 8: Redskins at Giants

At Metlife Stadium, the Redskins will look to reverse a trend. Since the stadium opened in 2010, the team holds a 2-7 record in New York against the Giants. They will look to slow down an energized offense led by newcomer running back Saquon Barkley and wide receiver Odell Beckham.

Week 9: Redskins at Falcons

The Redskins aim to come up with their first victory over the Atlanta Falcons since 2003. Wide receiver Julio Jones was second in the NFL in receiving yards and figures to be the focal point of the offense again with the complement of Alabama wide receiver Calvin Ridley, taken in this year's draft.

Week 10: Redskins at Buccaneers

After a couple of preseason games in Tampa, the Redskins will finally have a meaningful matchup with the Buccaneers in Raymond James Stadium. Their last regular season meeting in 2015 turned Washington's season around with a 31-30 comeback victory and propelled them into a playoff-chasing run. The Bucs beefed up their defensive line by drafting Vita Vea and signing Jason Pierre-Paul.

Week 11: Redskins vs. Texans

The Texans come to Washington for only the fifth time in the franchise's history during Week 11, as the Redskins look for their first win against Houston since 2006 at FedExField. Houston's secondary upgraded significantly in the offseason, with the additions of Tyrann Mathieu and Aaron Colvin. Redskins wide receivers and tight ends should be tested.

Week 12: Redskins at Cowboys

For the third consecutive season, the Redskins will play on Thanksgiving, returning to Dallas on the holiday. Last year, Washington beat the New York Giants hosting its first ever Thanksgiving game. This will be the first time cornerback Orlando Scandrick goes back to Dallas since joining the Redskins, which will face a slightly younger Dallas defense this year.

Week 13: Redskins at Eagles

The Redskins continue a tough stretch playing all three of their divisional foes in a row. With a little extra break after Thanksgiving, they travel to Philadelphia to take on the defending Super Bowl champions for a "Monday Night Football" matchup. It should be an intriguing contest for the Redskins run game, as they face a defensive line with a lot of depth, which includes Haloti Ngata and Michael Bennett.

Week 14: Redskins vs. Giants

Finishing out their three-game divisional opponent stretch, the Redskins host the Giants, whom they beat last year at home on Thanksgiving. The Giants did pick up veteran linebacker Alec Ogletree to anchor the defense and got younger by bringing in Georgia linebacker Lorenzo Carter in the third round of this year's draft.

Week 15: Redskins at Jaguars

The Redskins will make their first trip to Jacksonville, Fla., since the 2010 NFL season when they make this mid-December road trip. The Redskins have a 5-1 all-time record against Jacksonville, which made a resurgence last season under the leadership of Blake Bortles at quarterback and a stingy defensive unit.

Week 16: Redskins at Titans

The second to last game of the season could be the decider for the Redskins' playoff berth, traveling to Nashville against a 2017 playoff team in the Tennessee Titans. They look to return to the playoffs with added depth and a rising star in quarterback in Marcus Mariota after a respectable 9-7 season. It will also be a reunion for Titans linebacker Will Compton, facing his former team.

Week 17: Redskins vs. Eagles

Last year, the Redskins opened their season at home against the Eagles. This year, they'll close their season at home against them. Depending on how the season unfolds, this could have major playoff and seeding implications.
