The Redskins beat the Cowboys twice in 2012, notching both wins when Dallas was particularly hot in November and December, earning a sweep of their season series with "America's Team" for the first time since 2005.
However, a lot has changed since the 'Skins beat the depleted Cowboys in the do-or-die 2012 season finale. Dallas should have Bruce Carter, Sean Lee and Jay Ratliff back and healthy, and the defense has converted from a 3-4 to a 4-3.
Neither team was able to do anything dramatic on the free-agent market thanks to sanctions imposed by the NFL, though, so from a personnel standpoint this matchup will be similar. And yes, the 'Boys will be healthier on defense, but the 'Skins could be a much different team on defense, too, with Brian Orakpo, Brandon Meriweather and Adam Carriker back.
Prediction: Cowboys 24, Redskins 23
Coming off the bye week last year, the 'Skins tore up the league. But my, I have a bad gut feeling about this one.
