According to Master Tesfatsion of the Washington Post, the Washington Redskins are expected to host the New York Giants in a matchup on Thanksgiving. Washington will play host to the New York Giants, pitting one of the league's best offenses from 2016 against one of the strongest defenses down the stretch.

The last time Big Blue faced off on Thanksgiving was in 2009 against the Denver Broncos, in which they lost 26-6.

The Skins will open the season at home September 10th against the Eagles, who they swept last season.

The very next week, Washington travels to play Dallas on Thursday night for their final originally scheduled prime time game.

Thursday, Nov. 30 at Dallas Cowboys (NBC/NFLN/Amazon) 8:25 p.m.

As well, the Redskins play five playoff teams in the Oakland Raiders, Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Seattle Seahawks and Kansas City Chiefs.

Week 14 - This marks the second trip to Los Angeles - Rams Week 2 and Chargers here - in the Redskins' 2017 season and one of three West Coast swings this season. It will be the 40th straight year the Cowboys have hosted a game on Thanksgiving.

US tells North Korea: We don't want a fight, don't start one
In recent months North Korea has refused to buckle to global pressure and continued to develop both its nuclear and test missiles. In a statement carried by Pyongyang's state-run newspaper, the North Korean government also warned that the U.S.

It's always nice to see the likes of the Rams, 49ers and Chargers on the schedule, but two of those will be road games in Los Angeles. The division schedule heats up with trips to Philadelphia and a home game against a Cowboys team they lost a heartbreaker to at home early past year.

In most years, the Redskins would need to worry exclusively about winning the NFC East to make it to the playoffs.

Making it even juicier is the fact that the Redskins will be hosting the game at night and it will be against their division rival the Giants.

Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins is the subject of trade rumors in the past weeks. This represents the Redskins' first game at Arrowhead Stadium since 2005, when the Chiefs beat them 28-21.

The game will also feature an upcoming rivalry between cornerback Janoris Jenkins and wide receiver Terrelle Pryor, who shared some rather unpleasant exchanges a season ago.

Week 10: Sunday, Nov. 12 vs. Minnesota, 1 p.m.
