The Washington Redskins are 0-6 against the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving, but are coming off a morale-boosting win against Philadelphia. The Cowboys are on a two-game winning streak, but the last win was an unconvincing overtime triumph over Cleveland.
This means that the stage is set for another enthralling NFC East battle between two of the division’s oldest rivals. Tony Romo has been prone to throw interceptions this season, and his 13/13 touchdown-to-interception ratio means that there are defensive plays to be made.
Of course, with Brandon Meriweather out and London Fletcher listed as “questionable” for today’s game, the Redskins' defense is arguably at its lowest point.
In a couple of weeks, there could be three teams sitting at 6-6 in the NFC East, but this game has to be won first.
It looks too close to call. But as always, there are keys that will ensure that Washington will emerge victorious.
