Just how watered-down is the Cowboys-Redskins rivalry these days? It certainly doesn't help that Washington has posted a winning record just twice in the last 11 seasons, with a whopping seven different head coaches roaming the sidelines during that span. And Dallas has dominated the match-up recently, winning four of its last five games against Washington. The only loss? Last year's Week 1 heartbreaker that set the tone for a disappointing 6-10 season for the Cowboys. If DeAngelo Hall's 32-yard touchdown return of a Tashard Choice fumble as the first half expired doesn't tell the story of 2010 in one play, then Alex Barron's holding penalty negating a last-minute touchdown catch by Roy Williams certainly does the trick. If Week 1 this year is any indication, the 'Boys could be in for another frustrating season, as Dallas coughed up a 14-point fourth quarter lead in a 27-24 loss to the Jets. Sure, the rivalry ain't what it used to be, but that's no excuse to miss out on a chance to see the Cowboys continue their dominance over the hated 'Skins in the first game at the Death Star this season and the only appearance this year for both teams on Monday Night Football. Kick-off is at 7:30 p.m. Call 817-892-5000 or visit dallascowboys.com for tickets and more information.
