The Redskins face their toughest stretch of the season in a brutal three-game stretch that starts in Dallas on Thanksgiving.
From there Washington has another two road trips, going to San Francisco the first weekend of December and then another road trip to Pittsburgh on December 13th.
That. Is. Brutal.
Three straight road trips is very hard. Three straight road trips that include a West Coast finale against the defending NFC champions preceded with two probable playoff teams makes it that much harder.
Those three teams went 29-19 last year with the 49ers going 13-3. Both Dallas and Pittsburgh went 8-8, but the Cowboys have since had a coaching change and added to their offense while the Steelers are expected to get quarterback Ben Roethlisberger back from injury. He missed almost all of the 2019 season with an elbow injury.
The good news is the Redskins might be able to enter into the Thanksgiving and early December stretch with a bit of momentum.
