17 December 2010
Week 1 was a long time ago. The Cowboys were entering the season under Wade Philips with huge hopes of being the first to hosting team to win a Super Bowl. The 'Skins had a new coach, new QB and a new look offense. At the end of the game, the Cowboys drove the field as Romo found Williams in the endzone for the winning TD. Only one problem, a holding call on Alex Barron who was subbing for an injured Marc Colombo which cancelled out the TD and the . The 2010 season was on its way into a downward spiral. This way the season has played out, losing that week 1 game to Washington has made us ask what if Barron wasn't a complete idiot over and over.
Going into week 15, the Cowboys are the better of the two teams, having gone 3-2 in the last 5 games while the Redskins have gone 1-4 in that span. However, the Cowboys are still at the bottom of the division looking up at Washington.
If Dallas is looking for revenge on McNabb for beating them in Week 1, that might have to wait. According to a slew of reports, starting with Jay Glazer of Fox on Sunday, and now ESPN's Chris Mortensen and Mike Florio of profootballtalk.com, Rex Grossman could be the starting quarterback when Washington crawls into town on Sunday.
This game doesn't mean much outside of the Dallas and Washington rivalry. Both teams are headed back to the drawing board when the season wraps up in a few weeks. The Cowboys have looked much better under Garrett so I am hopeful that the Cowboys find a way to win this game.
So who wins? I'll take Dallas 24-17
