2013 NFL Schedule to be Released April 18

Win McNamee

A date has been announced for the NFL schedule release.

After retracting a previously scheduled 2013 NFL schedule release show for Tuesday, the NFL has now announced a date for its release.

NFL spokesperson Greg Aiello tweeted Tuesday that the NFL will announce its full schedule Thursday, April 18 at 8 p.m., EST.

In addition to the normal NFC East foes, the Redskins will play home games versus the Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, San Francisco 49ers, Kansas City Chiefs and San Diego Chargers. On the road, the team will travel to face Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, Atlanta Falcons, Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders.

As to how these games will stack up on the schedule is anyone's guess, although the NFL had asked the Redskins about Robert Griffin III's timetable for the sake of scheduling prime time games. This could mean that the Redskins will see a fair share of prime time games later in the season as opposed to its first half of games, or possibly only one or two total due to the NFL's own cautiousness.

The Redskins also did not play a divisional opponent until Week 7 a season ago, which isn't a common occurrence. As a result, an early season showdown with the Giants or Cowboys could come earlier than later in 2013, in addition to playing at least one of the two teams in the final two weeks of the season.
