Redskins to Play Five Games in Prime-time in 2013

Posted: Updated:

The National Football League announced its 2013 regular season schedule tonight, and the Washington Redskins' schedule features a team-record five national television appearances beginning at 7:10 p.m. ET on Monday, Sept. 9 against the Philadelphia Eagles on ESPN's Monday Night Football. The five prime-time games snap the Redskins' previous team record of four, previously set in six seasons including most recently in 2008.

 The season will be one of many parallels for Executive Vice President/Head Coach Mike Shanahan. This season, Shanahan will face all three of the other professional teams for which he has coached – the Denver Broncos (1984-87, 1989-91, 1995-2008), the Oakland Raiders (1988-89) and the San Francisco 49ers (1992-94). In addition, every opponent Shanahan has faced in the Super Bowl is represented on the 2013 schedule, including the New York Giants (1986 season), Redskins (1987), 49ers (1989), San Diego Chargers (1994), Green Bay Packers (1997) and Atlanta Falcons (1998).
