Washington's 2021 Home And Away Opponents


On Wednesday night, the Washington Football team will learn the dates and times of its 2021 opponents as part of the NFL's Schedule Release '21 show, which will air on NFL Network, and the NFL app at 8 p.m.

Here are the teams Washington is set to play this fall:

2021 Home Opponents

  • Dallas Cowboys
  • Philadelphia Eagles
  • New York Giants
  • New Orleans Saints
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  • Kansas City Chiefs
  • Los Angeles Chargers
  • Seattle Seahawks

2021 Road Opponents


In addition to its NFC East games, Washington will play every team from the AFC West and NFC South, meaning the team will host a rematch with Tom Brady and the Buccaneers. Washington's first-place finish in the division also ensures it will play the first-place finisher in the NFC North (Green Bay Packers) and NFC West (Seattle Seahawks). In total, Washington's defense will face five quarterbacks who have won at least one Super Bowl.

Washington will play the Carolina Panthers for the third straight season, this time travelling to Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina. Washington won the matchup during the 2019 season but lost in Week 16 last year, forcing Washington to wait one more week to clinch its first NFC East title since 2015.

Washington will also host the Kansas City Chiefs for the first time since 2013, facing off against Patrick Mahomes for the first time, and look to get its first win over the Atlanta Falcons since 2003.
