Just like they did the last time the Redskins hosted a prime-time game, in Week 1 against Dallas, Metrorail will be extending subway hours to help bring fans home from Sunday night's tilt with the Indianapolis Colts.

The Metro system will remain open until 1 a.m. Monday morning. Extra Blue Line trains will be running at the end of the game (around 11:30 p.m.) and additional personnel will be in place at the Morgan Boulevard station, which is about a 20-minute walk from FedEx Field.

The last Blue Line train will depart from Morgan Boulevard in the direction of Franconia-Springfield at 12:24 a.m. The last Blue Line train will depart in the direction of Largo Town Center at 12:27 a.m.

Parking is available at both Largo Town Center and Morgan Boulevard stations. Patrons will be charged $25 and must pay using a SmarTrip card. Cash will not be accepted. Paid parking will open three hours before the scheduled 8:20 kickoff, and will close two hours after the conclusion of the game.

And, of course, make sure you have enough money on your farecard or SmarTrip card before going. Don't get caught standing in a long line at the farecard machines. You'll look really dumb.
