The 1987 Washington Redskins began with the team trying to improve on their 12-4 record from 1986. The 1987 NFL season was shortened from 16 games per team to 15 games because of a players' strike. Games to be played during the third week of the season were canceled, and replacement players were used to play games from weeks 4 through 6. The Redskins would go on to beat the Denver Broncos 42-10 to win Super Bowl XXII.

Regular season schedule and standings
