The Washington Redskins recorded a losing season in 2017 and missed out on a playoff berth for the second straight season a year ago. Now, after making a major switch at quarterback, the Skins will be looking for nothing less than a winning campaign, although an accompanying playoff berth wouldn’t hurt either.

Now, let’s find out what lies ahead for the Redskins this coming season.
Washington Redskins 2018 NFL Win Loss Odds Prediction
- Washington Redskins Regular Season Win Total Odds – 6.5
Week 1: Sunday, Sept. 9, at Arizona Cardinals, 4:25 p.m. ET
The only reasons the Skins will get the road win in this Week 1 opener, is because the Cardinals have a first-time head coach and a new (and mediocre) starting quarterback in Sam Bradford. Win. 1-0.
Week 2: Sunday, Sept. 16, vs. Indianapolis Colts, 1 p.m. ET
Washington wins their home opener if only because Indianapolis is going to be awful on defense in 2018 and Alex Smith will pick them apart with his precision passing. Win. 2-0.
Week 3: Sunday, Sept. 23, vs. Green Bay Packers, 1 p.m. ET
I’m not expecting Green Bay to be elite in 2018 because of their myriad question marks on both sides of the ball, but I do like them to get the road win in something of a shootout over the Skins in this one because of Aaron Rodgers. Loss. 2-1.
Week 4: Bye
Week 5: Monday, Oct. 8, at New Orleans Saints, 8:15 p.m. ET
The Skins won’t be able to stop Drew Brees nor will they be able to have their way offensively against a New Orleans defense that was good last season and could be even better in 2018. Loss. 2-2.
Week 6: Sunday, Oct. 14, vs. Carolina Panthers, 1 p.m. ET
Despite being on the road, Carolina will get the win in this one simply because they are the better team in all three phases. I’m expecting a big game out of Christian McCaffrey in this one. Loss. 2-3.
Week 7: Sunday, Oct. 21, vs. Dallas Cowboys, 4:25 p.m. ET
Dallas has won five straight at FedEx Field, but I’m thinking that streak comes to an end in this Week 7 NFC East divisional battle. Alex Smith plays one of those really cerebral games to lead Washington to victory. Win. 3-3.
Week 8: Sunday, Oct. 28, at New York Giants, 1 p.m. ET
I like the moves the Giants made in the offseason and their hiring of offensive-minded head coach Pat Shurmur. I’m going with the G-Men to get the narrow home win in a shootout in Week 8. Loss. 3-4.
Week 9: Sunday, Nov. 4, vs. Atlanta Falcons, 1 p.m. ET
The Redskins simply won’t be able to contend with an Atlanta Falcons team that is just too good on both sides of the ball to be beaten by a Redskins team that is lacking both, leadership at the very top and talent as some crucial positions. Loss. 3-5.
Week 10: Sunday, Nov. 11, at Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 1 p.m. ET
This matchup between two evenly matched teams looks like it will be decided in the waning moments. I’m going with the Bucs to win by a field goal, simply because they’re at home. 3-6.
Week 11: Sunday, Nov. 18, vs. Houston Texans, 1 p.m. ET
The Houston Texans have the edge in coaching, at quarterback and on defense. Washington might be playing at home, but they’re inferior to the Texans. Loss. 3-7.
Week 12: Thursday, Nov. 22, at Dallas Cowboys, 4:30 p.m. ET
The Cowboys get their revenge as part of a regular season split with their longtime NFC East division rivals. Loss. 3-8.
Week 13: Monday, Dec. 3, at Philadelphia Eagles, 8:15 p.m. ET
The Redskins are completely inferior to the defending Super Bowl champion Eagles these days. Loss. 3-9.
Week 14: Sunday, Dec. 9, vs. New York Giants, 1 p.m. ET
The Redskins will extract some revenge for their Week 8 road loss to the G-Men. Win. 4-9.
Week 15: Sunday, Dec. 16, at Jacksonville Jaguars, 1 p.m. ET
The jaguars are going to shut down Alex Smith and any hopes Washington has offensively and then they’re going to run the ball down the Redskins’ throats with Leonard Fournette. Loss. 4-10.
Week 16: TBD (either Saturday, Dec. 22 or Sunday, Dec. 23), at Tennessee Titans, 1 p.m. ET
Tennessee has the edge at quarterback, running back and on defense, not to mention, first-year head coach Mike Vrabel could be just as god as Jay Gruden right off the bat. Loss. 4-11.
Week 17: Sunday, Dec. 30, vs. Philadelphia Eagles, 1 p.m. ET
Again, no matter where they play at these days, Philadelphia is head and shoulders better than Washington in every aspect of the game from ownership, to management, coaching and on-field play. Philly wins going away! Loss. 4-12.
