Redskins vs. Cowboys, part one: Storylines, how to watch, and more
By Ian Cummings
Part one of the epic historical rivalry is due to commence. Today, the Redskins travel home to host the Dallas Cowboys.
It’s a pair of games that both the Washington Redskins and the Dallas Cowboys both circle on their calendars, but in truth, it hasn’t been a very balanced rivalry. Dallas leads the series 71-45-1 all-time, and under Jay Gruden, the Redskins are 3-7 when taking on the Stars.
To avoid going 0-2, and to avoid falling into an NFL team segment that only has just above a ten percent chance of making the playoffs this far out, the Redskins will need to flip the script, for both their 2019 season, and for the timeless success the Cowboys have enjoyed against Washington.
It’s not going to be easy; Dallas looks reinvigorated with new offensive coordinator Kellen Moore. Their offense, often a hinderance with Scott Linehan, led the way last week as Dallas shellacked the Giants by a score of 35-17. Dak Prescott turned in a perfect performance, and the Cowboys defense proved to be stifling.
The pressure will be on for Washington to stave off this energized attack, and a lot more than honor is at stake. A loss sends the season further into doubt, and clouds the futures of various coaches. A win, perhaps, delays their demise.
Long story short, if you live anywhere south of the line drawn in the movie The Day After Tomorrow, aside from Arizona, Nashville, and the southernmost point of Florida, then you can watch this game on live television. Most of the American northeast, and the D.C. area, will broadcast it as well.
If that’s not the case for you, however, you’ll still have options to live stream online. NFL Game Pass and FuboTV are readily available for you, and you can start with a free trial! But before you watch, make sure you take some time to comb through our pregame links, listed below.
