3. Redskins have three NFC East games in a row middle of season

Rightfully so, the Eagles and Cowboys will enter the 2020 season as the top two favorites to finish on top of the NFC East following the results of last season, but this doesn’t mean the Redskins or Giants should be ruled out.

If anything, the key moves made over the last few months could result in Washington or New York surprising plenty of football fans during the 2020 season, depending on how things play out.

Either way, no matter what happens, it’s safe to assume the NFC East in general will be extremely competitive for all four teams involved.

And with the Redskins facing a difficult stretch during the middle of the season with three NFC East games in a row, this will be a true test to see where the team stands as far as being able to compete for the division title is concerned.

Facing the Cowboys in Washington towards the end of October was already going to be a challenge, but playing the Giants twice in a three-week span as well could be tougher than originally expected for the Redskins.

Since division record could play a role in determining whether the Eagles or one of the other teams finishes on top of the NFC East, it will be interesting to see how the Redskins look during this pivotal stretch, and whether Philadelphia benefits from a few key losses for Washington.
