Washington Football Team Official Schedule

The Washington Football Team are division champions and are staring down the gun barrel at Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this Saturday night at FedExField. It won't be the final team this calendar year they'll see the G.O.A.T and his new-ish team. It's now officially 2021 and because the regular season is over, we now know who the Washington Football Team will play next year. We don't know when, but winning the NFC East comes with a playoff ticket, an outside chance at the Vince Lombardi trophy, and a brutal grind for next year, according to Fan Nation.

The NFL playoffs began last weekend, starting the final part of the 2020-2021 season. The Washington Football won the NFC East with a 7-9 record and lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a home wild-card game. They made the playoffs for the first time since winning the division in 2015. NFL schedules are set from year to year due to a rotating schedule, and all the teams are known except for two for years in advance.

Washington Football Team 2021 Opponents

Washington plays two divisions next year, the AFC West and the NFC South. They finished 1st in their division and will play the 1st place finishers from the NFC West(Seattle Seahawks) and NFC North(Green Bay Packers) in 2021.

The NFC East was historically bad this year. They have a combined 23 wins and no team had a winning record. Washington swept the Eagles and Cowboys on their way to the division title but was swept by the Giants. New York, Dallas, and Washington all had new head coaches this season, which made the Eagles fall from grace even better. Their fall continues as a word just came out that Doug Pederson is out in Philly and they will now be the team with a new head coach next season. Dallas was also a mess this year and fired their Defensive Coordinator Mike Nolan after they were eliminated, said Hogshaven.

Here’s a look at the opponents Washington will face in 2021:

NFC East: 2x Dallas Cowboys (6-10 in 2020), 2x New York Giants (6-10), 2x Philadelphia Eagles (4-11-1)

Washington will play its usual home-and-home series against each of its divisional opponents, accounting for six of its 16 games on the schedule. The team went 4-2 against the NFC East this season, sweeping its series with the Cowboys and Eagles but losing both games against the Giants.

NFC South: vs. New Orleans Saints (12-4), vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (11-5), @ Carolina Panthers (5-11), @ Atlanta Falcons (4-12)

Every team plays one division in its own conference each year on a rotating basis. In 2021, the NFC East and South divisions will be matched up with one another, setting up a few intriguing games for Washington. The team will have to face the Saints coming off their fourth-straight division title, the Buccaneers in a rematch of this weekend’s playoff game, the Panthers in Ron Rivera’s second chance at beating his former team and the Falcons fresh off picking fourth overall in the draft.

AFC West: vs. Kansas City Chiefs (14-2), @ Las Vegas Raiders (8-8), vs. Los Angeles Chargers (7-9), @ Denver Broncos (5-11)

Washington’s turn in the AFC division rotation will pit it against the Chiefs, which promises to be one of its most difficult matchups of the season. However, the team does get to face the rest of the AFC West, which didn’t fare particularly well in 2020. The Chargers are on the hunt for a new head coach after firing Anthony Lynn while the Raiders and Broncos go into the offseason facing questions about their respective starting quarterbacks, said NBC Sports.

Ranking-based matchups: TBD vs. Green Bay Packers (13-3), TBD vs. Seattle Seahawks (12-4), TBD vs. Buffalo Bills (13-3)

The final three games of Washington’s schedule will be filled by the other two NFC teams that finished first in their respective divisions and a new, 17th game against an AFC team that finished first in its division on a rotating basis. Though the locations have yet to be determined, Washington will play the NFC's reigning No. 1 and No. 3 seeds in the Packers and Seahawks, respectively, as well as the AFC's second-seeded Bills. That means Washington will play six of the 11 teams to finish with at least 11 wins this season — including all four from the NFC.
