REDSKINS 2013: Breaking down the schedule, game by game
1 p.m., CBS
This might amount to a must-win game because of the brutal four-game stretch ahead. Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers is determined to reduce his turnovers after totaling 35 interceptions the past two seasons. A hungry Redskins defense will be ready to eat.
Thursday, Nov. 7
at Minnesota Vikings
8:25 p.m., NFL Network
The Redskins’ second trip to the Metrodome since 1998 could have NFC wild card tiebreaker implications. Stopping RB Adrian Peterson will be the top priority, as it was in last October’s 38-26 Redskins victory. Minnesota might have pulled away earlier in that game if QB Christian Ponder wasn’t so inaccurate.

1 p.m., Fox
It will be interesting to see how much the Eagles have grown under coach Chip Kelly since the season opener. Will Michael Vick still be playing quarterback, or will he be hurt by then? If LeSean McCoy (below) is healthy, this will be a difficult game. Fortunately for the Redskins, they’ll have the previous weekend off.
Monday, Nov. 25
vs. San Francisco 49ers
8:30 p.m., ESPN
Here’s a chance to measure up against the defending conference champions on the league’s biggest regular-season stage. If Griffin is healthy to this point, this game could be reminiscent of the titanic Redskins-49ers games in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s when both teams contended for the NFC title each year.
