Regular seasonEdit

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]
