Why, then, does it feel like it's a no-brainer that he goes into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a Dallas Cowboy? He's - perhaps reluctantly - ours, right? Former Cowboys Bill ... More >>

    ​Ain't what it used to be.   To me the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants rank ahead of the Washington Redskins as the Dallas Cowboys' most fierce rival these days.

    The Top 10 Most Memorable Cowboys-Redskins Games

    Again, with feeling. Ol’ antagonist George Allen used to try to rile us up by declaring the days before a Cowboys-Redskins game “Dallas Week.” Back then it barely raised an eyebrow, much less the blood pressure, as Dallas routinely had loftier goals than simply dispatching of a finger-lick ...

    99 Problems But T.O. Ain't One

    When two of the NFL's top three most valuable franchises play at Texas Stadium Sunday night, a lot will be riding on the outcome. Like, for example, the season. Only once in the franchise's 46-year history have the Dallas Cowboys started 0-2 and made the playoffs. That was back in 1993 when a fut ... More >>
