      LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The National Football League announced its 2014 regular season schedule tonight, and the Washington Redskins’ schedule features three prime-time games, including back-to-back nationally televised evening contests at FedExField in Weeks 4-5.

      Head Coach Jay Gruden and his 2014 Redskins will open the season on the road as they face the Houston Texans for a 1 p.m. game on Sept. 7 to be aired on FOX. The following week, Washington will make its FedExField debut as the Redskins welcome the Jacksonville Jaguars for a 1 p.m. contest on CBS on Sept. 14. The back-to-back games against AFC South opponents in the first two weeks will mark the first time since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger that the Redskins will have opened a season with two consecutive games against AFC squads.

      The Redskins will make their much anticipated visit to Philadelphia the following week on Sept. 21 when the teams square off on FOX at 1 p.m. The Redskins will make a short turnaround the following week as they return home to host the New York Giants on CBS’s Thursday Night Football at 8:25 p.m. on Sept. 25. Ten days later, Washington will host another prime-time game on Oct. 6 when they face the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks at FedExField on ESPN’s Monday Night Football at 8:30 p.m.

      In Week 6, the Redskins will attempt to extend an eight-game series winning streak against the Arizona Cardinals – the team’s longest active streak against one opponent – during a 1 p.m. road game airing on FOX on Oct. 12. The following week, Washington will face its third AFC South ...
