All about the Redskins

The Washington Redskins are a professional football team competing in the National Football League as a member club which plays in National Football Conference, East Division. The home ground of this team is located in the Metropolitan area of Washington, District Columbia. They play all their home games at FedExField located at Landover, Maryland. Their practice facility is located at Redskins Park in Ashburn. The club was established in 1932 making it one of the oldest clubs in the history of NFL. Not only it is the oldest but one of the five most successful clubs in NFL history recording over 600 regular and post season wins. The Redskins were the first club to introduce the marching band on the field along with a fight song for its fans to chant from the bleachers.

A Rough Start

The start of their 2016 season has not been a good one as they are 0-2 for the two games played against the Steelers and the Cowboys. However, come this Sunday against the New York Giants they will have a boost to their offensive line up as wide receiver DeSean Jackson returns from injury. He did not participate in the practice session on Wednesday due to his knee and ankle problem and was restricted to minimum practice on Thursday but returned like a force on the Friday practice. He ran well enough to tick all the boxes needed for the management to feel comfortable about him playing on Sunday night.

His presence in the lineup not only adds strength to the squad but also benefits other receivers as the defenders swamp around him leaving the other receivers partly open. With the start the Redskins have had, they need all the help they can get to start their winning ways this season.
