Starting the season 2-0, the Washington Redskins are ready to do Dallas!
In the next installment of this great sports rivalry, the Redskins will be fighting to maintain their #1 spot in the NFC East. Although quarterback Tony Romo and a pass-happy Cowboys will certainly put the Redskins secondary to the test, do the Skins have what it takes to defeat their Texas nemesis this season?
“[The newcomers will] learn pretty quickly that we hate the Cowboys around here. There’s no love lost at all. After that game you’ll normally see a bunch of people in the training room getting healed up for the next week. It’s gonna be a physical game, a lot of intensity. We definitely don’t like the Cowboys around here.”
— London Fletcher, Redskins Linebacker —
The last time these teams met was on December 19, 2010, where the Cowboys narrowly defeated the Skins 33-30. Although the Cowboys lead the rivalry 60-38-2 dating back to 1960, they have an even .500 record at their Monday Night Football games. Their last Monday Night Football meeting was in 2005, which resulted in a 14-13 Redskins victory.
Be sure to head to Barcode and catch all the Monday night madness for this intense game!
