Two seasons ago, when the Redskins hosted the Dallas Cowboys to close out the season and ultimately win the NFC East division title, the game served as the highest-rated NFL regular-season prime-time game ever on NBC, and it was also the highest-rated NFL regular-season prime-time broadcast on any network in 15 years, according to NBC (via The Washington Post).
So yeah, the NFL might want to go ahead and try its hand at that matchup again.
Additionally, the Redskins-Cowboys game is one of the best rivalries in sports, and scheduling a division game to end the season always carries the possibility of playoff implications.
This game is a win for everyone.
