The Washington Redskins are a National Football League franchise based out of the Washington D.C. metro area playing in the NFC East Division. Originally playing in Boston starting in 1932, the Redskins moved to the Washington D.C. area in 1937 and have stayed there ever since. The long-time NFL franchise now plays their games at FedEx Field in nearby Landover, Maryland.
Having been established in 1932, the Washington Redskins have played in more than 1,000 games throughout their over 80 years of organized football. In the pre-Super Bowl era, Washington saw tremendous success as they won six NFL East Division championships and two NFL Championships, one in 1937 and the other in 1942. After the modern adaption of the Super Bowl for the 1966 season, the Redskins have three times won the leagues championship (XVII, XXII, XXVI). In January of 1988, Washington defeated Denver in Super Bowl XXII, resulting in Redskin Doug Williams becoming the first African American quarterback to ever lead his team to a Super Bowl victory. Throughout the team’s rich history, some of the greatest players in NFL history have taken the field for the Washington Redskins. Legends like Sammy Baugh, Joe Theismann, and Art Monk have all cemented their football legacies while playing in the nation’s capital. Even today, Washington is home to some of the most exciting players in the league, like Robert Griffin III and DeSean Jackson.
