There’s no question the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys have one of the greatest rivalries in all of football and there’s no better way for these two teams to meet for the first time during the 2012 season than a matchup on Thanksgiving.
Both the Redskins are coming off big wins in Week 11 as they look to remain in the hunt with the New York Giants in the NFC East. While Washington pulled off a big 31-6 win at home over the Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas managed to come back against the Cleveland Browns to get back to .500 on the year.
With the way the Giants have struggled over the last couple of weeks, the NFC East is certainly still up for grabs. However, it’s safe to say te Cowboys may have the better shot at taking the division between the two teams considering their remaining schedule consists of only one team with a winning record.
Plus, when looking at the amount of weapons on the Cowboys’ offense–the potential is always going to be there for Tony Romo and company to display big numbers. If Dallas can find a way to take advantage of the Redskins and their weak passing defense–there’s no reason for them not to come up with the big win on Thanksgiving Day.
Then again, there’s no reason why the Redskins can’t pull off the win with the way Robert Griffin III has been playing this season.
