Redskins 2012 Schedule: Washington Opens Season Against New Orleans Saints

The Washington Redskins will open the 2012 NFL season with a road contest against the New Orleans Saints. The Saints will be without head coach Sean Payton, suspended for a year, and interim head coach Joe Vitt, gone for six games. Aaron Kromer, along with Drew Brees, will lead the way against Mike Shanahan's Redskins, who went 5-11 in 2011.
