Later today the Washington Redskins go into Cowboys Stadium to renew their intense famous rivalry with the Dallas Cowboys. A win would put them both level at 5-6 going into the home stretch, and both in touching distance of the 6-4 New York Giants who play Green Bay on Sunday night.
Both the teams are coming off wins this past week, although it’s Washington who will be more happy with their rout of the Philadelphia Eagles, 31-6, than the Cowboys who needed overtime to get past the Cleveland Browns, in a come from behind 23-20 victory.
Once again, Dallas have had to rely heavily on the ability of star quarterback Tony Romo to keep plays alive and keep the offense on the field. This has been largely down to the fact that he has no running game to assist him driving the team forward. This may seem a bit harsh on Felix Jones, who has re-emerged as the number one running back over the past month as first choice DeMarco Murray still nurses an injured foot.
