GLENDALE, Ariz. - Next month, the Washington Football Team will play its second game of the season at State Farm Stadium - home of the NFL's Arizona Cardinals. Only this time, Washington's opponent will be the San Francisco 49ers, not the Cardinals.

Following Santa Clara County's, the home of Levi's Stadium, announcement of a new three-week ban on all recreational activities that involve physical contact or close proximity to persons outside one's household, the 49ers have come to an agreement with the National Football League and Arizona Cardinals which allows the 49ers to host their Weeks 13 and 14 home games against the Buffalo Bills and Washington Football Team at State Farm Stadium in Arizona.

"The Cardinals organization, State Farm Stadium and League officials have been supportive and accommodating as we work through the many logistical issues involved in relocating NFL games," the team said in a statement.

The Washington Football Team (4-and-7 overall) lost 30-15 at Arizona in Week 2.
