Week 16: @ Chicago Bears (Saturday Dec. 24, 1 PM, FOX)
Week 17: New York Giants (Jan. 1, 1 PM, FOX)

The Redskins are the visiting team in London against the Bengals, so their eight homes are preserved. Per the NFL's custom with international games, the Redskins have a bye after that game.

Primetime games: 3

The Redskins kick things off with MNF facing the Steelers but they also have two other primetime games against the Packers and Panthers.

Strength of schedule: 17th

Here is the full strength of schedule, though this is a tad on the older side. We'll update this here in the next days, but it gives a good look at a starting point.

This is based on how the 2015 season ended and as you know each team changes from year to year so this probably won't be the same strength of schedule by the end of the season.

Redskins preseason schedule

Week 1: at Atlanta Falcons (August 11-15)
Week 2: New York Jets (August 18-22)
Week 3: Buffalo Bills (August 25-28)
Week 4: at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (September 1-2)
