Last season, the Washington Redskins won their first division title in 13 years. The quest to repeat that — and achieve even more — begins Monday night at FedEx Field.

The Redskins will face their NFC East Division rival, the Philadelphia Eagles, Monday evening, with kickoff set for just before 7 p.m.

The offenses of both teams headline the matchup, as Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will play in his first game since he suffered a gruesome knee injury during the playoffs last January. Griffin was held out of pre-season games as he rehabbed from the injury.

Meanwhile, the Eagles will play their first regular season game under new head coach Chip Kelly, who made his name in the college ranks with a high-scoring, fast-paced spread offense at the University of Oregon.

The Redskins won both games over the Eagles last season, including a 31-6 blowout at FedEx Field.
