Is Monday night opener a clue to RG3's progress? | CSN Washington
The bigger meaning here is the fact that the Redskins are scheduled for a prime time game so early in the season. Soon after Griffin started his rehab there was word that the suits at the league and at the networks were very interested in keeping tabs on how well the star QB was doing.

RGIII is ‘a monster’ in the weight room
"It takes a little longer to recover from your second [ACL surgery] than it does from your first," Grover told the Junkies on 106.7 The Fan Thursday morning. "I would recommend that he actually plays a season with a brace on, just to be on the safe side. I don’t expect anything less [performance-wise] from him.

Why are the Redskins going to Oakland again? - Rich Tandler's Real Redskins
In 2010 to make for the most equitable travel for teams going west, the scheduling rotation was tweaked. Thus anything prior to 2010 is not going to match up exactly 4 years later. Now a team playing the AFC West visits or hosts BOTH Denver and Oakland and visits/hosts BOTH KC & San Diego so there is only one far west trip. The same thing happened when Washington most recently played the NFC West in 2011. Now an eastern team will host/visit BOTH St. Louis & Seattle and visits/hosts both San Francisco and Arizona – again splitting up the game against westernmost clubs.
