The 1979 Washington Redskins season was the franchise's 48th season in the National Football League. The team improved on their 8–8 record from 1978 and finishing 10–6. While the Redskins were able to improve their record, however, they were eliminated from playoff contention on the final week of the season when facing the Dallas Cowboys with the NFC East title on the line, Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach led a last-minute comeback to defeat Washington 35–34 to win the division; which combined with the Chicago Bears defeating the St. Louis Cardinals 42–6, resulted in the Redskins losing a points tiebreaker for the final wild-card slot.

The Redskins hosted the Packers in Week 14. It was Washington's penultimate game at RFK in 1979. As they left RFK 17 years later and moved to a new stadium in Landover, it was also the two teams' final meeting at Washington for 25 years.
