Best 2013 NFL Rivalries: Washington Redskins Vs. Dallas Cowboys
NFL history has been riddled with intense and emotionally-charged rivalries.
Over the past decade, the NFC East has lost touch with these games due to no single team, or pair of teams, being a consistent powerhouse. In 2013, however, it would be a statistical anomaly if the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys did not have offensive powerhouses. Two offensive powerhouses will surely lead to a great rivalry that fans will enjoy.
The Redskins, lead by proven head coach Mike Shanahan, won the NFC East Division Title for the first time since 1999. The drafting of two star rookies in 2012 has finally let Redskins fans be able to believe in their franchise players. This year, QB Robert Griffin III, RB Alfred Morris, TE Fred Davis and WR Pierre Garcon will be the players fans are placing their hopes in.
The Redskins will be looking to capitalize on a second-straight division title in 2013. However, the Cowboys will look to gain their own victories and stop their division rivals. Can they do it? Washington fans better hope not, because this year the Cowboys will be good.
Trusted QB Tony Romo – just signed in the offseason to a $108 million, six-year contract — will be expected to play at the top level of NFL quarterbacks. A tandem of underrated, but talented and ready to prove running backs will be ready to provide at least a decent ground game. Although, any ground game will be effective with defensive players having to spotlight superstar receiver Dez Bryant, followed by lesser stars TE Jason Witten and WR Miles Austin.
The rivalry between the Redskins and Cowboys had been called one of the greatest in sports history. Although, in recent years, the NFC East has done almost nothing, with the exception of breakout seasons by the New York Giants, the 2013 season will be the start of a new division.
