REDSKINS 2013: Breaking down the schedule, game by game
Question of the Day

8:30 p.m., NBC
The Redskins need to be 3-1 coming off the bye week if they are to assert themselves atop the division. They swept Dallas last season for the first time since 2005. The Cowboys couldn’t stop the deep passing game in the first meeting and left themselves vulnerable to the run when they adjusted in the second.

vs. Chicago Bears
1 p.m., Fox
Chicago won as many games as the Redskins in 2012, but the franchises had significantly different offseasons because the Bears missed the playoffs on a tiebreaker. They replaced coach Lovie Smith with Marc Trestman.
Sunday, Oct. 27
at Denver Broncos
4:25 p.m., Fox
Shanahan’s return to Denver is one of the highlights on the schedule. He probably will end up in the Hall of Fame because of what he accomplished as head coach there from 1995 to 2008 — two Super Bowl championships, three AFC West titles and a .616 winning percentage.
Sunday, Nov. 3
vs. San Diego Chargers
