With the Redskins locking up the NFC East over the weekend, they solidified 2016 matchups with the Cardinals and Panthers along with the NFC North and AFC North.

While the Washington Redskins are currently focused on the Dallas Cowboys for their 2015 regular season finale and then set sights on the playoffs, they now know the location for their 16 regular season games in 2016.

As part of the NFL's International Series, the Redskins will be playing in London next year. Check out photos from the Redskins' previous games outside the United States.

The Redskins next year will face the NFC East for home and away matchups just like they do every season, but they'll also face the AFC North and NFC North.

The only date currently confirmed for next year is Oct. 30, 2016, when the Redskins play the Cincinnati Bengals at Wembley Stadium in London as part of the NFL's International Series.
