    America Really, Really Wants the Cowboys to Lose to the Redskins on Sunday

    The Dallas Cowboys, despite a season defined largely by extended periods of mediocrity, improbably, inexplicably find themselves on the cusp of their first playoff berth in three years. It all comes down to Sunday. If they beat the Redskins, they're in. If they lose, they're out. One would expect t ... More >>
