The Greatest Rivalry In Football!

Tonight on Monday Night Football we wrap up an exciting week 8 with the Washington Redskins traveling to Texas to take on the Dallas Cowboys.  Even though the series has lost some of it's meaning the last few years this is by far the best rivalry in football.  Every time the two NFC East teams get together you can though out all the stats because it's always a dogfight tip the end.

The Redskins won the first meeting between the two teams 26-14 on October 9, 1960.  The Cowboys lead the series64-44 with two games ending in ties.  The Redskins are 2-0 in the playoffs against the Cowboys.  These are all amazing stats but the best part of the rivalry is the competitiveness.  No matter the teams records the teams always play a little harder against each other.  In fact one season the Redskins went 15-1, their only loss coming to the Cowboys.  This is how a rivalry should be played.

Tonight's game will be a tale of two quarterbacks.  For the Cowboys if Tony Romo can manage the game like he has been and not have throw the ball too often they will win tonight's game.  For the Redskins they will be starting their third string quarterback.  In order for the Redskins to come away with the victory they will need to run the ball with Alford Morris.  If they control the clock and keep the Cowboy offense off the field they will be the victors tonight.
