On Tuesday, the running back was asked what his thoughts about the rivalry between the Redskins and Cowboys prior to their matchup this Thanksgiving afternooon

His response?

"I know nobody here like the Dallas Cowgirls."

Thursday will be his fourth game as an NFL running back, his first against the team's Dallas rivals.

In the Week 2 matchup between both teams, Kelley did not see any action as a backup behind Matt Jones. Before Week 8, Kelley was promoted to the team's starting runningback.
