With the addition of Robert Griffin III, the Redskins are expected to have a noticeable jump in wins next season. Despite the addition of a franchise quarterback, the Redskins still play in one of the toughest divisions in football and will face Baltimore and Pittsburgh for two out-of-conference games. Many are excited for the direction the Redskins are headed, but do not be surprised if they just miss the playoff next season.
Overall Record Prediction: 8-8
