(ARLINGTON, Texas) — An old school rivalry will be revisited on Thanksgiving. The Washington Redskins (4-6) will travel to Dallas to take on the Cowboys (5-5) for the seventh time on Turkey Day.
Dallas is 6-0 (28-15-1 all-time) in Thanksgiving games against the Redskins. Both teams will come in with the same amount of rest, after their respective games on Sunday.
“I think both teams have a problem when it comes to the short turnaround, but we’ll hopefully make the most of it,” said Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, who is coming off a 31-6 win over the Eagles.
“You’ve got to go out there and play, Dallas is always ready to play,” said Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan about the short rest. “You want to represent your organization the right way and hopefully we can do that.”
Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is coming off a 35-of-50 day in which he passed for 313 yards in the team’s overtime win over the Browns on Sunday.
“Tony’s done a great job about making a lot of things happen,” said Cowboys tight end Jason Witten. “He does as good as anybody in this league, obviously we expect him to play well.”
