Washington Redskins at Dallas Cowboys Thanksgiving Day open thread

Talk about game number two on Thanksgiving between the Redskins and Cowboys.

NFL: Washington Redskins at Dallas Cowboys Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

The first game of Thanksgiving was a plodding, defense filled knock down, drag out NFC North matchup, that the Lions won on a last second field goal, 16-13.

Now, for the matinee you have a bitter NFC East rivalry between the Redskins and Cowboys.

Oh, and by the way the Cowboys are the top team in the NFC while the Redskins are the six seed and a wild card team in the NFC. The Skins are also two games behind the Cowboys in the division, so this could be a huge win for both teams.

The Cowboys are at home and are big favorites, at -6.5 coming into the game.

What can the Skins do to slow down the potent and balanced Cowbots offensive attack.

Meanwhile, the Skins offense has been clicking and Kirk Cousins looks like the real deal. Did the Skins makw a mistake in not extending him long term? What is it going to cost them now?

In the end, this should be another great game, I'm taking the home team again.

Cowboys 35

Skins 31
