Predicting the Redskins 2020 Record

New, comments
NFL: Washington Redskins at Miami Dolphins Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The other day, I gave a glimpse at what the Redskins possible two-deep lineup could look like come September. What that exercise really did, was help fans see some of the big holes still left on this current roster - most of the prominent ones coming at offensive tackle and tight end.

Today, I wanted to make predictions based on that projected two-deep, of the Redskins record for the 2020 NFL season.


2020 Home Opponents

2020 Road Opponents


NFC East:

Cowboys - The Cowboys are a very good football team who has improved this offseason. I think we are competitive at home this year, but ultimately end up going 0-2 against our most hated rival.

Eagles - The Eagles are the second most talented team in the division. I feel we eek out a home win and lose on the road in Philly.

Giants - The Giants are in the same situation as the Redskins. Second year quarterback, questions along the offensive line, no-name receiving corps and an improved defense. Just like I predicted for the Eagles, I think the Redskins split with the Giants, winning at home and losing on the road.

NFL West:

49ers - The 49ers are one of the best teams in the NFC. This one should go down as an L.

Cardinals - The Cardinals are a team on the rise. They improved their offensive line and wide receiving corps this offseason. The Redskins lose a tight one here on the road.

Rams - The Rams are no longer the powerhouse in the NFC West, but they still have more talent than the Redskins. Skins lose a close one at home.

Seahawks - If this game was in Seattle, I would predict a blowout. Being this is a home game, I think the Redskins keep it close, but still get the L.

AFC East:

Bengals - Rookie quarterback Joe Burrow will not have a good trip to D.C. in what I predict will be the Redskins biggest win margin of the season.

Browns - The Browns have offensive fire-power, and I think they put it all together this year behind a revamped offensive line. I think they handle the Redskins at home in Cleveland.

Ravens - The Ravens are just too good. This should be like a home game for them, and they win easily.

Steelers - This is not the Pittsburgh Steelers team we are used to seeing. Big Ben is aging and the offensive weapons are not what they used to be. The Redskins sneak out a big road victory here.

Other:

Lions - Matt Patricia is on the hot-seat in Detroit, and despite some added talent this offseason, they are a team on the decline. Skins take one here on the road.

Panthers - The Redskins should get a W at home here against the Panthers who are in the early stages of a re-build with new head coach Matt Ruhle.


Prediction:

6-10(top 10 NFL Draft pick in 2021)

Going 6-10 is not a good season by any means, but this is the start of a re-build that most feel will take two years minimum for the Redskins to be able to compete for a division title. Despite 6-10 NOT being a good record, I do think we see improvements in key areas on this football team.

- QB: I think Haskins takes the next steps in his maturation process and despite the record, has a really productive season.

- WR: A jump in production is expected from this group and I certainly think we’ll see just that. There are weapons all over - they are just young and need developing.

- Defense: I think our front four has an outstanding season, and leads the league in sacks and pressures. The defense keeps us in most games giving fans massive hope for the future.
