Fresh off their first back-to-back wins of the season, the Dallas Cowboys were ready to get their first three game win streak. Unfortunately, their most hated rival, the Washington Redskins had different ideas. The Cowboys annual Thanksgiving game ended in disappointment for the Cowboys at Cowboys Stadium.
The Cowboys climbed back into the game but after an unsuccessful onside kick attempt, the Cowboys fell seven points short falling to 5-6 on the season. The Redskins improved to 5-6 and Robert Griffin III became the first rookie in NFL history to throw four touchdown in consecutive games.
