Timeline
Previous season Next season
2017 2019

The 2018 season was the Washington Redskins' 87th in the National Football League and their fifth under head coach Jay Gruden. This was the first season since 2011 that quarterback Kirk Cousins was not on the roster, as he joined the Minnesota Vikings in the offseason as a free agent.

The team finished with the same record from the previous season, 7–9, and missed the playoffs for the third straight season. Despite a 6–3 start which was their best since 2008 plus leading the NFC East, the team suffered 4 straight losses after the team lost their starting quarterback Alex Smith to a leg injury in their Week 11 loss to the Houston Texans. This resulted in a quarterback hangover. First, it forced Colt McCoy into the starting role in Weeks 12 and 13 before suffering a fractured fibula in a 28–13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 13, thus forcing the Redskins to start journeyman quarterback Mark Sanchez in Week 14 before starting another journeyman quarterback Josh Johnson against the Jacksonville Jaguars after benching Sanchez at halftime against the New York Giants. After the Alex Smith injury, the Redskins finished the last 7 games of the season with a record of 1–6. They were eliminated from playoff contention by a 25–16 loss to the Titans, and wins by the Eagles and Vikings in Week 16. The team's season ended with 25 players on injured reserve, which were a league high.
