Redskins' Opponents For The 2017 Season Confirmed

Posted Jan 2, 2017

The Redskins will face eight teams from the NFC West and AFC West along with an away trip to face the New Orleans Saints and hosting the Minnesota Vikings once again.

The Redskins will face eight teams from the NFC West and AFC West along with an away trip to face the New Orleans Saints and hosting the Minnesota Vikings once again.

With the 2016 NFL regular season schedule officially over, the Washington Redskins now know all 16 of their games for the upcoming season.

The Redskins next year will, of course, face the NFC East for home and away matchups just like they do every season, but they’ll also face both the NFC West and the AFC West.

Washington will travel to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum for the first time since 1974 and Arrowhead Stadium for the first time since 2005.

Additionally, the Redskins will face the New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings based on their third place finish in the NFC East this season.

Dates and times for the all 16 regular season games – along with the preseason slate -- will be released at a later date.

Here's the 2017 season breakdown:

  • 2017 Home Games: Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers, Denver Broncos, Oakland Raiders, Minnesota Vikings, Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, New York Giants.
  • 2017 Away Games: Los Angeles Rams, Seattle Seahawks, Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers, New Orleans Saints, Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, New York Giants.
