The 2003 Washington Redskins season began with the team trying to improve on their 7–9 record from 2002; however, the team regressed and won only five games[1] for their worst season since 1994.[2]

This was the first season since 1982 that the Redskins didn't have cornerback Darrell Green. Owing to different formulas for intraconference scheduling used by the NFL before 2002, it was the first time since 1994 that the Redskins played the Atlanta Falcons[3] and in fact the first time ever the Redskins had played at the Georgia Dome,[3] which opened as early as 1991.
