The Washington Redskins endured a second straight losing season in 2014, bringing further question to whether or not Robert Griffin III is the right quarterback for the franchise. RG3 was nothing but inconsistent, while also battling injuries throughout the year. Heading into 2015, it’s fairly clear that second-year head coach Jay Gruden will have to figure out whether or not RG3 is his guy, or at least find a way to win despite him. That revelation could come as soon as the 2015 NFL Draft, which could potentially have Washington starting over under center.
Of course, Washington’s problems weren’t restricted just to the quarterback position a year ago. The offensive line was also erratic and their defense didn’t appear to have the right talent in place to consistently be effective. If the Redskins can fill key holes in those areas, they just might be able to work back towards the division title they claimed just three years ago. It all comes back to RG3, though, who was the main reason the ‘Skins won the NFC West back in 2012, yet also a key reason they’ve struggled ever since. With the recent struggles, Redskins tickets on the secondary market will not be among the most expensive in the league.
Washington’s most expensive game will come against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 13 on Monday Night Football. Redskins vs Cowboys tickets have a get-in price of $89. Washington’s least expensive game will come against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during Week 7.
The schedule is only more challenging outside of that game, as the Redskins need to brace for a brutal run outside of the NFC East. Washington will have to take on the AFC East this year, which has the Miami Dolphins (season/home opener) and Buffalo Bills coming to town and will force Washington to hit the road to take on the New York Jets and the defending champion New England Patriots in Week 9. It’s not much easier inside the NFC, where Washington’s only cakewalk game of the year is a home showdown with the Buccaneers. St. Louis and New Orleans give them two tough NFC home clashes, while they hit the road to meet up with the Falcons, Panthers and Bears.
