The Redskins are back for a new season, rolling out a more youthful, refurbished version of their 2018 selves. Seemingly gone are high expectations, replaced by cautious optimism for a future now rooted in young, untested talent.
As with recent years, the new edition of the 87-year-old franchise was met with little fanfare during its first two days of training camp in Richmond. Perhaps the quiet and lack of lofty projections are just what is needed for the young core to gel.
The team begins its preseason slate in less than two weeks. Here’s a breakdown of their four exhibition games:
Thursday, August 8, 7:30 p.m. — @ Cleveland Browns
Thursday, August 15, 7:30 p.m. — vs. Cincinnati Bengals
Thursday, August 22, 7:30 p.m. — @ Atlanta Falcons
Thursday, August 29, 7:30 p.m. — vs. Baltimore Ravens
