2013 Washington Redskins Preview
The Washington Redskins have every reason to be optimistic heading into this season. Robert Griffin III exploded on the scene as one of the most exciting young players to watch on the field every Sunday. He finished his rookie season with a 65.6 percent completion rate, throwing for 3,200 yards and 20 touchdowns, with just five interceptions. He also set the single-season rushing record for a rookie quarterback with 815 yards.
However a late season injury has the fans concerned and the team surrounded by questions. Can RG3 recover from a torn ACL and reconstructive surgery to start the season? Will other defenses have him figured out? The latest odds for this team shows that oddsmakers are optimistic RG3 will be back and better than ever. [yop_poll id=”30″]

2013 Washington Redskins Off season
The Redskins went into the off season with plenty of great players to build around. Despite not having a first round pick, the Redskins had a very successful draft acquiring help in the defensive backfield to improve a secondary that was torched by the Giants Eli Manning and many other quarterbacks during the season.
David Amerson is a top-15 prospect that will join safety Phillip Thomas in competing for a spot on this defense. With a revamped secondary and the return of Brian Orakpo the Redskins defense should see immediate improvement. Some losses included Jammal Brown, Lorenzo Alexander, and Chris Cooley, but it was nothing that would directly impact the future of this team.
Here is a look at the upcoming schedule for the 2013 Washington Redskins.

2013 Washington Redskins Predictions
The Washington Redskins are a vastly improved team and the young offensive duo of RG3 and running back Alfred Morris will have this team competing for the division title for years to come. While the future is bright, expecting a big season this year is asking too much.
There are too many questions surrounding this team and it all starts with RG3. If he is not 100 percent healthy it could mean the difference in winning 10 games or getting a high draft pick. They also still have to solidify a beatable secondary and deal with playing the same division with the New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys. With a demanding schedule and too many questions surrounding the team, the Redskins will win less than eight games this year.
