The Redskins will return to action in Week 6 when the team plays host to the San Francisco 49ers at FedExField. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET.
The Redskins finished the first quarter of their season with a 2-2 record despite facing the league’s toughest opening schedule, statistically. Including action during Washington’s bye in Week 5, the Redskins’ first four opponents are now a collective 14-6, including a 12-4 mark in games against teams other than Washington. The .700 collective winning percentage boasted by the Redskins’ opponents represents the NFL’s toughest strength of schedule of any team through five weeks.
Sunday represents the Redskins’ annual Breast Cancer Awareness game, which kicks off the team’s awareness efforts throughout the entire month of October. Fans on Sunday will be welcomed by Tanya Snyder, wife of Redskins owner Dan Snyder, and hundreds of Zeta Tau Alpha members distributing THINK-PINK!® ribbons and breast cancer awareness educational materials.
