We're back with the second game thread of Thanksgiving. It's 4pm out here in DC, while it's 1pm back in the Bay Area. I'm guessing a lot of you have not yet begun to eat. I'm kind of glad I'm scheduling these out ahead of time. Right about now there's a 50/50 chance I'm passed out and trying to recover in time for dessert. Although, I suppose that depends on how early we start eating.
The Redskins and Cowboys are the second game of the Thanksgiving triple-header. The division rivals have both had their ups and downs, but they remain in the playoff chase. The Cowboys have won two straight to improve to 5-5, and now sit only a game back of the Giants in the NFC East, and a game back of the Seahawks, Bucs and Vikings in the wild card chase. Of course, they are a few Tony Romo miscues from blowing it all up in their face, so we'll see what Thanksgiving brings.
The Redskins defeated the Eagles last week to snap a three-game losing streak and improve to 4-6. They have had some incredibly exciting play from Robert Griffin III, but their overall consistency has not been there. I believe this might mark RGIII's first NFL game on national television, although I could be mistaken. I'm hoping for a show.
