Never before has America and NFL fans been more "ready for some football."

And with the NFL Draft in the rearview mirror, now is the time to map out the year: 16 games over 17 weeks with the goal of breaking a four-season playoff drought.

One thing missing for the Redskins 2020 schedule? Night games.

Yes, for the first time since the 1982 season Washington is shut out from prime time, per The Washington Post. That means no Thursday night, Sunday night, or Monday Night Football in 2020. While some fans may be upset with that, considering the Redskins' awful fortune in night games, an under-the-radar approach could be a blessing, especially for quarterback Dwayne Haskins' sophomore season.

Of course, all of this is tentative. With the ongoing battle against COVID-19, games, and games involving fans, could be delayed. More testing and more time are needed before players can safely take the field and fans safely fill stadiums across the country.

As for right now, there is plenty of time for debate: How many wins will the Redskins get this year?
