Fans seeking Washington Redskins tickets in 2015 will be praying for a bounceback year from their favorite team. The Skins struggled all season under first year head coach Jay Gruden, ultimately closing with a 4-12 and a fourth place finish in the NFC East. Fans attending games at FedEx Field were subject to not one, not two, but three quarterbacks—which is far too much instability for any franchise to handle. Neither Robert Griffin, Colt McCoy, nor Kirk Cousins could win the starter’s job outright. Griffin goes into 2015 as the de facto main guy; how he performs early in the year will determine Washington’s playoff odds.
Home to the Redskins since 1997, FedEx Field is located just outside the D.C. city limits, in the otherwise sleepy town of Landover, Maryland. FedEx Field’s main calling card and biggest selling point is its size. For much of its existence, it could hold up to 91,000 fans—the most in the entire NFL. That number was scaled back to 79,000 in 2010, to provide fans with a comfier and more enjoyable in-game viewing experiences. Now the nosebleeds don’t cause actual nosebleeds.
Public transportation to and from FedEx is iffy, but if you’re willing to pack onto the Metro’s Orange line, you will get out there eventually. The vast majority of Washington fans choose to drive and park at the game, which provides plenty of time for tailgating and camaraderie. The in-stadium food and beverages are consistently rated for high quality, but expensive in a way that reflects the high cost of living in D.C. in general. There’s been talk in recent years that ownership is looking to move the Skins back into the city limits, but until that day comes, fans will continue to pack the stands of FedEx Field, cheering their team on through good times and bad.
