The 2004 Washington Redskins began with the team trying to improve on their 5–11 record from 2003. It was also the season of Joe Gibbs’ return as head coach after coming out of retirement.

Offseason[edit]

NFL Draft[edit]

Regular season[edit]

The 2004 season constituted the first time since their last Super Bowl-winning season of 1991 that the Redskins played the Cincinnati Bengals, and the match produced their first ever home loss to that franchise.[1] The reason for this is that before the admission of the Texans in 2002, NFL scheduling formulas for games outside a team’s division were much more influenced by table position during the previous season.[2]
