NOTES

  • In addition to its NFC East games, Washington will play every team in the AFC South and NFC North this upcoming season. Washington finished third in its division, so it will also play the third-place finishers in the AFC North (Cleveland Browns) and NFC South (Atlanta Falcons).
  • Washington will play the Detroit Lions and San Francisco 49ers for the third time in four seasons. The team had a combined record of 2-2 in previous matchups, winning against the Lions in 2019 and the 49ers in 2020. The 23-15 win over the 49ers in Week 14 of the 2020 season was part of the four-game win streak that helped Washington secure an NFC East championship.
  • Washington will host the Tennessee Titans for the first time since 2014, when it secured a 19-17 win over the AFC team. The Titans are currently at the top of their conference with the No. 1 seed and home field advantage for the postseason.
  • Washington will also travel to play the Bears for the first time since 2016, allowing head coach Rivera to coach against the team he played for from 1984-92.
