Enjoy a Washington Redskins game in a luxury suite at FedEx Field
The message in Washington has been heard loud and clear around the league; Kirk Cousins is the franchise quarterback going forward. After winning the job over former Heisman Trophy winner and former number two overall draft pick Robert Griffin III, Cousins put together a magnificent season in 2015, racking up impressive statistics such as franchise records for most completions and yards in a season. Two touchdown passes shy of the Redskins single season record, Cousins led the team to an NFC East title and a playoff berth against the Green Bay Packers. Despite the playoff loss, the management felt they had their answer at QB and cut Griffin in the off-season.
The 2016 season seemed to be promising for this franchise. Cousins was poised to build off his breakout season and bring his team to the next level. However, a disappointing record of 8-7-1 had the Redskins in contention for the final wild card spot until the last game of the season where they lost to the New York Giants by a score of 19-10.
Head Coach Jay Gruden will, undoubtedly, be working through the off-season to piece together a winning formula for the 2017 season. Striving to reclaim the title of division champions from the Dallas Cowboys, Cousins will get a boost of confidence any time he looks around the huddle, calling plays to tight end Jordan Reed and star receivers DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon, and Jamison Crowder. Fans in attendance at FedEx Field, especially those viewing the field from a Redskins suite, are in for some great football action.
Winners of three Super Bowls, the dedicated crowd that inhabits the stadium on Sundays in Washington cheers on their team with unmatched fervor. Washington fans come out to FedEx Field in droves to support their beloved hometown football team.
It has been 25 years since the Lombardi Trophy came to DC and this year’s squad hopes to cement themselves in the burgundy and gold lore with a Super Bowl victory. Facing stiff opposition in an extremely competitive NFC East, Cousins and company will need to be firing on all cylinders from September until February if they hope to end the season with confetti and a ticker tape parade downtown Washington, DC.
Legends of the past for the Washington Redskins include Sammy Baugh, Sonny Jurgensen, Joe Theissman, Art Monk, John Riggins, and Darrell Green. For more information about the Washington Redskins click here.
