While they may have a favorable schedule based off their opponent’s 2011 record, the Redskins schedule for next season may actually be more difficult than it seems on paper. Along with two matchups against all three of the other teams in the NFC East, Washington has to square off against the AFC North–who sent three teams to the playoffs last year–in 2012.
Consider this with the fact that they have to face each of the four teams in the NFC South–it could end up being another long season for Washingto. On the bright side, at least the No. 2 pick in the upcoming draft guarantees them a hopeful quarterback of the future.
