It's Dallas week. Again.
The Redskins defeated the Cowboys in Week 7, but when they travel to AT&T Stadium for a Thanksgiving clash with their bitter rivals, things feel a lot different than they were just a few weeks ago. The Redskins will be without quarterback Alex Smith, who suffered a gruesome ankle injury this past Sunday against Houston and will miss the remainder of the season.
It's officially Colt McCoy time in Washington, and his first test comes on the road Thursday. The last time McCoy played in Dallas, he led the Redskins to a shocking upset over the Cowboys on Monday Night Football in 2014.
The Cowboys have been playing good football the past two weeks, defeating Philadelphia and Atlanta in each of their respective stadiums. Dallas returns home to host their annual Thanksgiving game, a date they have played on every year but two since 1966. The Cowboys overall record on Thanksgiving is 29-18-1.
The last time the Cowboys hosted the Redskins on Thanksgiving was two years ago, when Dallas defeated the Redskins 31-26. Prior to that, the Redskins defeated the Cowboys on Thanksgiving in 2012, 38-31.
The Redskins have not had much success on Thanksgiving, with an overall record of 3-10, although they did defeat the New York Giants on Thanksgivng 20-10 last year. Thursday's contest will mark the third consecutive season the Redskins play on Thanksgiving, a franchise record.
The Cowboys lead the all-time series record, 70-45-2.
