Everything will be on the line Sunday when Dallas takes the field in Landover, Md., to face division rival Washington. The winner clinches the NFC East title and the No. 4 seed in the NFC playoffs. The loser has a chance to miss the postseason entirely, with only the Redskins able to win a Wild Card spot.
The Cowboys really hurt their chances last Sunday, losing an overtime game to New Orleans. Tony Romo's touchdown pass tied the game in the final seconds of regulation, but Dallas was unable to score on its opening possession in the extra period. Despite the loss, the Cowboys have won five of seven behind improved play from Tony Romo, who has thrown just three interceptions in those seven contests. He had thrown 13 in the previous eight games, when the Cowboys went just 3-5.
Washington is the hottest team in the NFC, with the last defeat coming in Week 9. During the team's current six-game winning streak, the Redskins have notched wins with Robert Griffin III and fellow rookie Kirk Cousins at quarterback. But with a healthy Griffin this week, the Redskins will be able to put their best foot forward Sunday night. The rookie from Baylor has passed or rushed for 26 touchdowns on the season, turning the ball over just eight times.
