With over 1,000 games under their belts, the Washington Redskins have been playing in the NFL since 1932. During that time the Redskins have grown into one of the most successful teams in the league.
The Redskins have won three Super Bowls and in 2018 Forbes estimated the team’s value at $3.1 billion which makes it the fourth most valuable franchises in the NFL.
In this team guide we’ll examine every aspect of the Redskins to help you not only learn about the franchise but hopefully make a few more winning bets on them this season too.
The Washington Redskins organization played its first game in 1932 as the Boston Braves but that moniker didn’t last long. The team changed its name to the Redskins just one year later and moved from Boston to the Washington DC area in 1937.
During their many decades in the NFL, the Redskins have won three Super Bowls, five conference championships, 14 division titles, and made 24 playoff appearances. The Redskins golden age was during the 1980s. The team won two Super Bowls in that decade and made the playoffs five times.
Right now the Redskin’s biggest rivals include the Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, and Philadelphia Eagles. The most notable names in franchise history include Joe Theismann, Sammy Baugh, John Riggins, and Sean Taylor.
During the 2017 season, the Redskins organization generated $491 million in revenue and Forbes estimates the business to be worth $3.1 billion.

The Redskins are always a popular team when it comes to betting and that’s not expected to change any soon. With an improved defense, new quarterback, and Jay Gruden coaching for his job, there will be no shortage of action in Maryland.
With QB Alex Smith under center last season, the Washington Redskins were 6-3 and in a great spot to make the playoffs. After Smith went down to a season-ending leg injury in week 11, however, the Skins went 1-6 the rest of the way and finished below .500 for the second straight season.
With Smith expected to miss the entire 2019 season, Washington made a big move and drafted QB Dwayne Haskins with the 15th overall pick.
Haskins, who is expected to be the week one starter in Washington, takes over an offense that didn’t score more than 16 points in any of its last five games. Washington’s defense was a bit better, finishing 17th in yards per game and 15th in points per game.
While Haskins is still a question mark it seems unlikely that this will be the season that the Redskins are able to win their first NFC East title since 2015.
The Cowboys and Eagles both made the playoffs last season and came into 2019 as legitimate Super Bowl contenders. The job security of Head Coach Jay Gruden will be an ongoing storyline as many believe he could be fired if he can’t get the Skins back to the playoffs.
