Washington will open the 2021 season by hosting the Chargers at FedEx Field

Week 1 vs Justin Herbert

NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

We have the first schedule leak for the Washington Football Team. Field Yates reported the full CBS Week 1 lineup and it will have Washington hosting the Los Angeles Chargers at FedEx Field at 1pm. Washington announced last week that they will be welcoming fans back to their stadium at full capacity after not having any for almost the entire 2020 season.

Washington vs the Chargers should be a good game between two teams who finished 7-9 last season. Washington ended up winning the division and hosting the Super Bowl champions, while LA finished 3rd in their division behind the Super Bowl lovers. Washington drafted Chase Young #2 overall and he had a fantastic year which earned him the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year Award. Just Herbert was drafted 6th overall and also had a great year which earned him the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Award.

This is the first leak for Washington’s schedule but there are likely to be several more before the team announces theirs at 7:45 pm tonight. The NFL will officially release the entire schedule at 8 pm as part of their 3 hour release program.
