It's always an intense matchup when the Dallas Cowboys come to Washington, and considering the NFC East's tendency to be decided in Week 17, this could be a matchup with playoff implications. The rivalry between these two teams is one of the oldest and most bitter in the NFL. No matter the two teams records, this will be a fun matchup to watch.

4. Philadelphia Eagles Week 3

The NFL won't have to wait long for DeSean Jackson to return to Philadelphia. This will only add fuel to an already heated rivalry. The past two NFC East champions will battle for that position again, making this an important game for both teams. This will be a fun matchup to watch early in the season.

3. St Louis Rams Week 13

The Redskins will call it "just another game," but this game will be personal. The Redskins would love to beat the Rams head-to-head to show they got the better end of the RG III trade. The last time the Redskins played the Rams, it ended with a controversial penalty against former Redskins receiver Josh Morgan that prevented the Redskins from completing a comeback. The Redskins should have an extra chip on their shoulder heading into this game.

2. Indianapolis Colts Week 12

I'm sure every Redskins fan is as tired as I am of hearing the comparisons between Andrew Luck and RG III. This is a theme of the list; this game should be personal for both Griffin and the Redskins. This will be the first chapter of head-to-head matchups between Griffin and Luck that will be over-analyzed throughout their careers. Regardless, it would be nice for Griffin to come out with a victory in Round 1.

1. Seattle Seahawks Week 5

I'm not sure if I'm the only one, but I've been bitter since the Seattle Seahawks came back from a 14-0 deficit in the 2012 playoffs to defeat the Redskins only after RG III was injured. I still fully believe that if Griffin is fully healthy, the Redskins win that game. This will be a statement game for the Redskins; if they can knock off the defending champs, it will prove the 3-13 season is behind them.
