We knew the Redskins opponents for the 2020 season in late December. Now, we know the dates, as the NFL released the full 2020 season schedule on Thursday.

After months of waiting, Redskins fans now know which team they open the season against (Philadelphia Eagles), when they'll face Trent Williams and the San Francisco 49ers (Week 14), when Ron Rivera faces his old team (Week 16) and much more.

Here's the Redskins 2020 schedule, with tidbits about each game.

Redskins 2020 Schedule Notes


  • Week 11: Redskins vs. Bengals: The two teams that held the top two picks in April's draft square off. Chase Young has already said he's most looking forward to playing the Bengals, the only team that passed on him during the draft.
  • Week 12: Redskins @ Cowboys (Thanksgiving): For the fourth time in five years, the Redskins play on Thanksgiving day. This happens to be their only primetime game of the 2020 season.
  • Week 13: Redskins @ Steelers: This is the second of a brutal four-game stretch against teams that finished a combined 40-24  a season ago. Not fun.
  • Week 14: Redskins @ 49ers: The third and final game of this difficult road trip ends with a clash with the 49ers and the reigning NFC champions. Also, a date with former left tackle Trent Williams, who the Redskins traded to the 49ers in April.
  • Week 15 - Redskins vs. Seahawks: This game marks the return of Quinton Dunbar to FedEx Field. Rivera shipped the cornerback to Seattle in exchange for a fifth-round pick in March after Dunbar grew unhappy with his contract.
  • Week 16: Redskins vs. Panthers: Rivera faces his former team for the first time since taking over as the Redskins head coach. While this will certainly be a big storyline leading up to the Week 16 contest, Rivera insists that playing the Panthers is "just another game."
  • Week 17 - Redskins @ Eagles: The Redskins end their season with the same team that they began the campaign with. Could this be Ryan Kerrigan's final game with the Redskins? Rivera stated in March that Kerrigan is in the Redskins plan for 2020. However, the longtime pass rusher has only one year left on his contract with no extension in place, and the team has drafted two edge rushers in the first round the past two years.
