Cowboys' Thanksgiving win keeps NFC East race wide open

DALvsWAS Michael Gallup Will Play Value Extends Beyond Passing Game

The Dallas Cowboys are set to head into a critical matchup on Thanksgiving Day that could have a major impact on their playoff chances with a matchup against the Washington Redskins that could see them potentially move atop of the NFC East standings.

When the Cowboys best players came to play, which Cooper did with touchdown receptions of 40 and 90 yards in the third quarter, this team made a terrific case for the best in a division that remains wide open. Peterson started the game, rushing 12 times for 35 yards, but the FOX broadcast did not address his comments, the possible implications of them or the fact that they drew national attention in the hours leading up to the game.

When Dak Prescott wasn't flawless with his arm, he was able to run decisively to create a touchdown and another first down on a field goal drive.

Cooper had the most yards receiving for the Cowboys on Thanksgiving, along with the longest catch of his career and Prescott's longest completion in his three seasons.

The Redskins (6-5) had a 13-10 lead after McCoy threw his second TD pass, a 10-yarder to Trey Quinn in the third quarter.

The Redskins (6-5) lost for the third time in four games in Colt McCoy's first start in four years coming off Alex Smith's season-ending leg injury.

Native American advocacy groups have been pleading for a name change for years, and it is these exact situations that make it obvious that such an evolution is required. "He showed his strength".

Cowboys rookie receiver Michael Gallup had two catches for 19 yards less than a week after his brother died by suicide. Gallup didn't talk to reporters after the game. He called out the defense after Thursday's 31-23 loss, saying that the unit lost games in consecutive weeks, and that the team continues to get "disrespected" because they don't win big games. "We just said to hell with it". "You know he's playing for his brother, he's living for his brother and that's what's most important". Still, he wasn't almost as effective as in Washington's 20-17 win in the first meeting.

The upcoming Thursday night home game against the steamrolling New Orleans Saints will be key.
