The Washington Redskins travel to Arlington Texas this evening to take on the Dallas Cowboys at Jerry's Death Star. In a terrible NFC East, this match up may actually wind up being for first place or a tie for first place in the division. The Cowboys enter tonight at 2 and 3, tied with the Philadelphia Eagles for first place in the NFC East. The Redskins come in to the night one game back of the two leaders at 1 and three and one game up on the win less New York Giants.
Last week Dallas did what no one thought they could, they went head to head with Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos and kept up point for point only to lose in the final seconds of the game following an interception of starting QB Tony Romo. Despite the crushing last seconds loss Romo is still having the second best season, QB ratings wise, of any NFL starter behind Manning. The Cowboys enter tonight's game with an obviously potent offense but a sub par pass defense.
The Redskins are off to a very disappointing start. They lost their first three contest and have only managed to beat the Oakland Raiders to this point. A big part of Washington's struggles thus far can be attributed to the struggles of Robert Griffin III. Griffin up to this point had not looked like his former self since coming back this season following a serious knee injury in the playoffs that required off season surgery. Seeing as much of Griffins game relies on his ability to move and run, many question if he will ever again be the electric QB that we saw in his rookie season or in his Heisman winning Sr year at Baylor.
