The Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins to beat each other and conquer the NFC East title as they clash on Sunday at 8:20 PM ET at Fedex Field, in the week 17 best game.
The Cowboys can only use a win while the Redskins could end up losing the game and still making into the playoffs if several results go their way.
“Everything we’ve been working for comes back to this weekend, taking advantage of what we’ve done over the last six weeks,” coach Mike Shanahan said. “It really doesn’t mean anything unless we take advantage of our game versus Dallas.”
“When you get in, anything can happen,” quarterback Tony Romo said. “I know that. We’ve seen that far too many times. We just need to do the right things to get in.”
Robert Griffin III beat the Cowboys on Thanksgiving throwing for 300 yards, four touchdowns and one interception. “We’re fresh into this rivalry, but we can definitely sense how the fans feel, how some of the guys that have been here feel about the Cowboys, and that’s the mind-set we have to take on,” Griffin said.
“I know the fans will make sure that the stadium’s electric, it’s really exciting, and we’ll definitely have a home-field advantage,” said Griffin, who has six TD passes and no INTs in his last four home games.
Dallas is 2-5 ATS in its last 7 games when playing on the road against Washington. The Redskins are 3.5 point favorites in the NFL lines.
