The 1960 Washington Redskins involved the team's last-place finish in the NFL Eastern Conference, with a dismal 1–9–2 record under second year coach Mike Nixon. The Redskins' only win that season was a 26–14 victory against the first-year expansionists Dallas Cowboys team on October 9 in Washington.

This season was also the last one in their old stadium, Griffith Stadium. Following the season, the Redskins dismissed Nixon, and replaced him with Bill McPeak.
