Dallas Cowboys: Rodeo with the Redskins

Jared LillyCorrespondent ISeptember 28, 2008

Who's the current No. 1 team in the NFL?

The Dallas Cowboys.

Does that really matter?


The Cowboys are facing off against the Washington Redskins for the last time in Texas Stadium. The Cowboys and Skins are a challenger for the most bitter rivalry in sports without a doubt, and Sunday is the day for the Cowboys to establish themselves as the BEST team in professional football.

Who's the favorite?

Naturally, as a Cowboys fan, I would and will say Cowboys. The Cowboys are looking to remove the sour taste from last years loss against the Redskins, and have a phenomenal offense. If T.O. is shutdown, the Cowboys have a handful of awesome receivers to deliver to, not to mention the dominant one-two punch of Felix Jones and Marion Barber.

What Should the Redskins Look Out for?

Where to start. Tony "Lil Favre" Romo is great in and out of the pocket, has a deep ball, and a run game of his own. Marion Barber can blast a hole at any given moment. Felix Jones is a rookie, but you can't tell from his game play, because you don't see him long enough to notice. Jason Witten, possibly the best active tight end in all of football, can block, catch a deep ball, and ball across the middle. Terrell Owens, 'nuff said. The list goes on and on.

What Should the Cowboys Look Out for?

Santana Moss. He tends to have his way with the boys from Big D. Known for crushing the zeal of Cowboys fans in the last two minutes of the 4th quarter.

Clinton Portis, the only running back to break 100 yards rushing against the Cowboys last season. Even though it was only 104 yards, you never know when he is going to bust loose. Chris Cooley, the most underrated tight end in football, sometimes parallels Witten in style. Shawn Springs, once again, 'nuf said.

And oh yeah, penalties, penalties, penalties, PENALTIES!!!


Cowboys win, 34-21.
