Week 8 of the NFL season means it's time for Redskins vs. Cowboys.
The Redskins and Cowboys both enter the Sunday afternoon game with 3-3 records, but with the Redskins playing without Trent Williams and Brandon Scherff, the home team will have a much bigger hill to climb.
The Week 8 "America's Game of the Week" between the Redskins and the Chiefs takes place at 4:25 p.m. ET on Sunday at FedEx Field in Landover, Md.
Redskins Kickoff with Chick Hernandez, Brian Mitchell and Trevor Matich airs live at 3:30 p.m. The trio returns on NBC Sports Washington Plus at 7:30 p.m. ET for Redskins Extra, followed by Redskins Overtime. (Channel Finder)
Redskins vs. Cowboys Week 8 Live Blog:
7:00 PM: If another Redskins player gets injured, we might have to cancel this live blog so I can suit up as a replacement. SO. MANY. INJURIES.
6:55 PM: The World Series has been great, but am I the only one who is kinda sick of all the World Series promotion during this game? I get that FOX has to do it, but I feel like they've crossed the threshhold of what a tolerable ammount of promotion is. I dunno.
6:50 PM: As a reminder, Redskins Extra and Redskins Overtime will be on NBC Sports Washington Plus tonight due to the Wizards game on our main channel.
6:45 PM: Our internet is not working and it is raining. Also, this game is not very much fun.
5:35 PM - Well, not ideal. Redskins FG attempt is blocked, the Cowboys run it back and like, two plays later score a TD. It's 14-13 now. Life comes at you fast.
5:20 PM - Ryan Kerrigan is back in the game! That's why live blogs rule. You never know when you write that he's questionable to return only to have him return like 3 minutes later. The thrills don't stop.
5:15 PM - Ryan Kerrigan is questionable to return to the game with a groin injury. Who needs starters anyways.
4:50 PM: Niles Paul took a nasty hit to the head on that TD. Stayed down after the play and eventually walked off into the locker room:

4:44 PM: TOUCHDOWN SKINS. Rob Kelley runs it in after a big completion from Cousins to Crowder. It's 10-7 now. Also it's still raining.
4:25 PM: OH MY GAWD! Ezekiel Elliott fumbles on the veryfirst play of the game. Josh Norman picks up the ball and the Redskins have it.
4:20 PM: The Redskins will kick off, the Cowboys will start with the ball.
3:50 PM: The Redskins are rocking the throwback uniforms, consisting of tan pants and dark burgundy jerseys. Personally, I don't like 'em. Go with the white pants and red tops. But I get it, it's alumni weekend. But frankly, these are not good uniforms. Sure, they're better than the yellow pants, but it's not hard to top that.
3:40 PM: Speaking of injuries, Mason Foster won't be on the field for the Redskins to keep Ezekiel Elliott in check. Foster was placed on the IR this week, and it became a bit of a controversy. But on Sunday, Foster shared a moment with Senior Vice President of Player Personnel Doug Williams. Awwwww.
3:30 PM: To make matters worse, the Redskins defense will have to keep Ezekiel Elliott in check. Zeke is capable of dismantling defenses all by himself, but teams have shown that he can be contained. Will Elliott rush for more than 90 yards today? That what our experts debated this week.
3:20 PM: On the other side of the ball, the Redskins get back Josh Norman, which is huge. Norman will be flanking Dez Bryant all day, so get your popcorn ready. But Norman won't have Bashaud Breeland to help him out. Breeland was a suprise addition to the inactive list.
3:15 PM: The Redskins have a tall task ahead of them, on bnoth sides of the ball. With Brandon Scherff and Trent Williams out of action today, Kirk Cousins is going to have to be extra sharp, and extra quick. Can he and Terrelle Pryor finally get on the same page? I hope that's the case, but with the nasty weather at FedEx Field, I don't think this will be Pryor's breakout game.
3:05 PM: Since it's #DallasWeek, we put together a good list of the most hated Cowboys players of all time. We thought about just writing "ALL OF THEM," but thought a top ten list would be a better fit.
3:00 PM: To get us started, here is JP Finlay's comprehensive Redskins-Cowboys game preview. It's a good one, even though JP still hasn't invited me on the #RedskinsTalk Podcast.
2:55 PM: It's time for the first #DallasWeek of the season to come to an end. Welcome to NBC Sports Washington's Week 8 live blog. It's me, Troy Machir again. You can follow JP Finlay and Rich Tandler too if you'd like. JP and Rich are out at FedEx Field, but lets be real. This live blog is the place to be. Plus, JP has yet to invite me on the #RedskinsTalk Podcast. Yes, I am holding a grudge.
