For Robert Griffin III and his Washington Redskins it all comes down to one game. Sunday night when the Redskins and the Dallas Cowboys walk out onto the field for the coin toss, RGIII will be looking for his first divisional title in the National Football League. It happened fast for RGIII and it is something that many people didn’t think it would happen in his rookie season. Now with the divisional crown on the line, RGIII is going to have to beat the Dallas Cowboys. It has been a while since the Redskins and the Cowboys contended for a divisional crown. The trick is going to be RGIII protecting himself in the game. RGIII likes to take off if he has to and the Dallas defense has had trouble stopping their opponents quarterbacks this season. They are going to be challenged in the game against the Redskins. RGIII is not your normal quarterback and he is listed as 21st in rushing stats this season with 752 yards and that is after missing a game. The guy would have probably rushed for...

Washington Redskins safety Reed Doughty believes that if his team doesn’t win tomorrow night’s game against the Cowboys and reach the playoffs, this season will be a failure.
“All this is is an opportunity,” said Doughty, per USA Today Sports. “You don’t want to look at it at the end of the year and say, ‘Oh, we came back and finished above .500.’ What does that mean...

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan believes that rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III is on his own level and no one in NFL history has ever been where he is.
“I don’t think anybody in the history of the league has played at his level,” Shanahan said, per ProFootballTalk.com. “At least over the last 40 years, when I take a look at the numbers and what he has done...

That means RT Tyler Polumbus will play and, one would think, start. Good news for the Redskins there. That also means the Skins will dress three quarterbacks for the active roster tonight, Robert Griffin III, Kirk Cousins and Rex Grossman.
Redskins strong safety Dejone Gomes is out and will be replaced by the duo of Reed Doughty and Jordan Pugh. Right tackle Tyler Polumbus (concussion) is active after being cleared late in the week. The only notable item about the Redskins' inactive lists is that Rex Grossman is dressed as the No. 3 quarterback behind Robert Griffin and Kirk Cousins.
The entire list of inactives...
The hype that has already surrounded this match, you could be forgiven for thinking that there was something more than a division title up for grabs. Of course, throw in the added ingredient of one of pro sports most heated rivalries, and the fact that a playoff place is there for the winners, something that both franchises have been starved of in recent times, its easy to see...
The Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins will play each other on Sunday night for the NFC East title. NBC will carry the game which will have playoff implications.
It is safe to say that the rivalry between the Cowboys and Redskins is back.
What is the point spread in the Cowboys and Redskins game? The Redskins are 3.5 point favorites against the Cowboys. The over/under for this...
The Cowboys and Redskins are playing for the NFC East this weekend, this is why people love the NFL.
Entering the last week of the season I'm sitting at 153-87. That's ok but not great. I'd like to be over 170 for the season, but it is what it is at this point. Let's finish strong.
With teams resting players and teams out, I'll also take a look at the...
Washington Redskins DB Domonique Johnson was absolutely leveled by Dallas Cowboys LB Kyle Wilber on this play. It looked clean at first, but when it is slowed down, you can see that there is some helmet-to-helmet contact. It was good to see Johnson get up right away, and hopefully he won’t experience any lasting effects from this crushing blow.GIF via: @cjzero
