The Redskins have played more than 1,000 games since they were established in 1932, and are one of only five franchises in the NFL to record over 600 regular season and postseason wins, reaching that mark in 2015. The team, playing their home games at FedExField in Landover, Md., is one of four rivals in the East Division of the National Football Conference. They have won 14 divisional titles, five conference championships and three Super Bowls — their last in 1991.
They were the first team in the NFL with an official marching band, and also the first team to have a fight song, Hail to the Redskins. The club began play in 1932 as the Boston Braves before changing their team name to the Boston Redskins in 1933. They relocated to Washington, D.C., in 1937.
Washington is the third most valuable franchise in the NFL, behind Dallas and New England, according to Forbes. They are also the eighth most valuable sports club in the world as of 2016, valued at about $2.85 billion.
Their list of hall of famers includes such greats as Sonny Jurgensen, Sammy Baugh, John Riggins, Art Monk and Darrell Green. The Redskins also had two legendary coaches in George Allen and Joe Gibbs.

Fans are restless in the nation’s capital as the Redskins have not won a playoff game since 2005. They finished 8-7-1 last season, another mediocre season in Washington.
Quarterback Kirk Cousins is in his sixth year with the Redskins. This will be his third as the full-time leader of the offense. His first two seasons finished with QB ratings of around 100, even though his stats were a little better in 2015. He passed for almost 5,000 yards last season, by far the best of total of his career.
Obviously, the Redskins need to improve on the defensive side of the ball, as they gave up 50 points more than any of their NFC East rivals. They have a great foundation in cornerback Josh Norman, but he can’t do it all. They have added help to the defensive line through free agency and strengthened their secondary through the draft.
The Redskins ranked in the top five in penalties last season. If they can improve on both sides of the ball and become a little more disciplined, there’s no reason the team can’t finish in the top two in the NFC East.
