Monday Night Football Open Thread: American Football Team Based in Washington D.C. at Dallas Cowboys

New, comments

Join us as you watch Monday Night Football where we will see the Dallas Cowboys likely continue their winning ways against (one of their) rivals the Washington Redskins.

It may be all Dez all night for the Cowboys tonight against division rival Washington

The build up all week has been that Colt McCoy will start for the injured Robert Griffin III, and of course for the beyond terrible Kirk Cousins.  Griffin was never going to start, but since the 'skins quarterback situation is so dreadful and abhorrent, you might as well make Dallas gameplan for more than one bad quarterback, right?

Dallas (6-1, 1st place NFC East) has its name in the conversation for best team in the NFL as we hit the midway point of the season, and Washington (2-5, last place NFC East) doesn't seem to be going much of anywhere.  Washington's got injury issues up front on defense with Brian Orakpo out for the year (again), as well as in the defensive backfield, as DeAngelo Hall will miss his opportunity to get torched by Dez Bryant as he was placed on IR back in late September.

I know with divisional games there is always that talk of "throw the record books out the window" but tonight's game will very likely get ugly.

Enjoy the game, and let the comments fly!
