The Redskins 2020 schedule was unveiled Thursday night and while the season is a long ways away, one game sticks out to several members of the Burgundy and Gold, and that would be Week 4 at home against Baltimore.
"I think I'm most excited about going against the MVP, Lamar Jackson," Chase Young told Fred Smoot during the Redskins Schedule Release show. "I feel like that's the MVP, that's the best, so I'm definitely looking forward to going against the best, and giving the best shot I can give."
The Redskins first-round pick from last month's draft had previously told media that he was looking forward to facing Jackson, and he will get his shot at the reigning MVP in Week 4.
Adrian Peterson knows that facing the AFC North is going to be a challenge this season and that all starts with No. 8.
"It's a strong division, Peterson said. "You got some talent over there, Lamar, obviously MVP of the league, and it shows, he's spectacular. I'm not going to lie, I'll be watching him. I won't be sitting down there on the bench. I'll be watching him, I'll see what he's got, up close and personal."

When the Redskins host the visiting Ravens on October 4, Ryan Kerrigan also knows facing Jackson will be no easy task.
"We up front have to be on our "p"s and "q"s," Kerrigan told Larry Michael. "It's not just fly around and rush with no awareness, we got to rush but also keep in mind that we got to keep No. 8 in the pocket, because Lamar Jackson, as dangerous as he is with his arm, he's electric with his legs."
The Beltway Battle will be a fun one to watch.
