The Redskins had a nice break during their bye week — five days off to be exact. But now it's time to get back to work with 12 straight weeks of football ahead of them, starting with the San Francisco 49ers during Week 6 of the 2017 NFL season.
For a quick recap after the bye week, the Redskins are 2-2 — losing their opening game to the Philadelphia Eagles, beating the Los Angeles Rams and the Oakland Raiders and losing again to the Kansas City Chiefs. In the NFC East, Washington sits second behind the Eagles, who it plays again in Week 7.
The Redskins are without Josh Norman, who fractured his rib and exited the game against the Chiefs. His injury is expected to keep him out for four weeks.
As the Redskins move forward into Week 6, they'll take on a couple familiar faces with the 49ers. Pierre Garçon with play against Washington for the first time with his new team, while former Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan is now San Francisco's head coach.
The Washington-San Francisco matchup will also be a battle of former Michigan State quarterbacks, with Redskins' Kirk Cousins facing 49ers' Brian Hoyer, who was a senior when Cousins was a freshman.
