The Washington Redskins home stadium, FedEx Field, is always the subject of complaints.
One of the most recent critics was Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins. He threw an interception that was returned for a touchdowns during a Thanksgiving Day win against the New York Giants, and a loss of footing contributed to it.

Cousins said on 106.7 The Fan that the field probably doesn’t look like an NFL field should, and the difference between a win and a loss can be someone slipping on the turf, via 106.7 The Fan’s Chris Lingebach.
The NFLPA is looking into the playing surface conditions at FedEx Field, according to The Washington Post’s Liz Clarke and Mark Maske’s source.
NFL vice president of communications Michael Signora said that the field was compliant with league standards on Thursday night, via Clarke and Maske.
Something does need to be done to FedEx Field. Minnesota Vikings kicker Kai Forbath, who used to play for the Redskins, said before a recent game there that the grass is “dirt and they spray-paint it green.”
Also, after a game against the Dallas Cowboys in October, the ceiling in the press box began to leak.
It’s fun to make jokes about FedEx Field, but this stadium is only 20 years old. It should not have these kinds of problems.
