With two NFL championships and three Super Bowls in a decade (1982, 1987 & 1991), the Washington Redskins have played 1,000 games in the NFL since the age of prohibition and are one of only five teams to have won 600 games in the regular season and postseason combined. They're the third most valuable NFL franchise behind the Dallas Cowboys (who they share a division with in the NFC East) and New England Patriots. The Redskins have won the NFC East just three times in the last 24 years, though.
Washington won the NFC East in 2012 and 2015 but will struggle to repeat that feat in coming seasons.
In recent seasons, the Redskins have been competitive, showing resilience at every turn. However, they haven't been able to come up with the kind of consistency to challenge for division titles. In Kirk Cousins they have a real asset, though, so anything is possible with him at the helm. Possible, but not probable.

Washington Redskins Standings Right Now
The Redskins aren't expected to win the NFC East in seasons to come. However, they are always competitive and usually offer division opponents all they can handle.
How To Win At Washington Redskins Betting
The NFC East is undoubtedly one of the most competitive divisions in the NFL. The winner of this division will have a viable shot at making Super Bowl LII. That won't, however, be the Washington Redskins. While they remain competitive, the Redskins don't have the pedigree to challenge the Dallas Cowboys and NY Giants.
Kirk Cousins is a reliable, consistent NFL pivot. He is underrated and always gives the Redskins a chance to win. Sometimes he tries to do a bit too much, which, usually through a turnover, ends up costing his team.
The Redskins enjoyed a dynamic 2016-17 season on the offensive side of the ball, as they had the third most total yards and second most passing yards. Those numbers didn't translate into enough points, though. The Redskins scored 24.8 points per game, the 12th most in the league. They can blame their woeful redzone numbers for the lack of a cutting edge.
Washington's defense was average, allowing 23.9 points per game. That put them in the middle of the pack in terms of points conceded across the league.
The Redskins were average both home and away. They struggled to excel in front of their home fans, another reason the team didn't qualify for the playoffs. In an extremely difficult division, the Redskins won three of six divisional games. That was one result away from the Giants' 4-2 record, the best mark in the NFC East.
Avoid the Redskins as a futures bet. This team is not quite good enough to challenge for NFC East supremacy. Instead, look to backing the over in most Washington games while keying on moneyline bets. Do your research, find favorable matchups and take full advantage. We don't think they'll improve upon their 8-7-1 record from 2016-17.
