Want to go to Redskins vs Cowboys on Thanksgiving? Get ready to spend major money

Want to go to Redskins vs Cowboys on Thanksgiving? Get ready to spend major money

For Redskins fans considering making the trip to Dallas for Thanksgiving to see their team take on the Cowboys, it might be time to think again. Data from TickPick.com shows that the average cost of a single ticket is approaching $500, the highest cost for a Thanksgiving game in years.

The soaring costs shouldn't be a surprise, as the Cowboys have the best record in the NFL behind rookies Dak Prescott and Ezekiell Elliott. The last time the Redskins faced the Cowboys on Thanksgiving in 2012, Robert Griffin III led Washington to a runaway victory. 

Next Thursday's game should be much closer, as the first Skins-Cowboys tilt this season ended 27-23. Washington had a chance to win the game late but an ill-timed interception in the end zone left the 'Skins short.

TickPick - which has been tracking ticket prices since 2013 - shows the current average ticket price for the game at $470. The previous high for Thanksgiving tickets came in 2015 when Green Bay retired Brett Farve's jersey during Packers-Bears, and those tickets averaged $345.

If Dallas can beat the Ravens this weekend to move to 9-1, expect prices to go even higher. If Washington beats Green Bay Sunday night to move to 6-3-1, the matchup becomes even more exciting, and prices will surely reflect that.

Washington Football Team posts video of old name and logo being stripped from facilities

Washington Football Team posts video of old name and logo being stripped from facilities

The Washington Football Team continues to give fans a glimpse into the historic name change and rebrand that will take place over the course of the next season.

The team’s official Twitter account shared a time-lapse video on Thursday that showed various murals and imagery with the old name and logo beings stripped from the team’s facilities.

Phrases like ‘Hail to the Redskins,’ ‘HTTR’ and ‘Fight for Old D.C.’ were removed from in the video as well as the old logo and an overhead view of FedEx Field.

The team captioned the video “Taking everything down and starting fresh.” 

This video is one step in a long rebranding process that the team began a few weeks ago. On July 23, Washington announced it would use the name ‘Washington Football Team’ for the 2020 season and replaced its name and logos on social media that same day.

In addition to a new name and logos, the team released uniforms, including a helmet design that took Twitter by storm.

In the coming months, Washington will continue this transition to rid its facilities of the former name and logo and welcome in a new era in its history.

Josh Norman takes the high road when asked to reflect on his time with Washington

Josh Norman takes the high road when asked to reflect on his time with Washington

Josh Norman wasn't the most beloved player in Washington during his tenure with the organization, but he certainly was one of the more interesting.

Media members never knew when a routine interview at the corner's locker would turn into a passionate rant or some bizarre metaphor. That sort of unpredictability basically made every one of his pressers a must-attend event.

So, when Norman's time with the Burgundy and Gold came up during his Thursday Zoom call with reporters in Buffalo, it felt like a place where the now-Bills defender could really sound off. But instead, Norman kept things pretty simple in his answer.

"I don’t stick on what went wrong," he said. "I look at the positives. When everybody is trying to look at the negatives, they’re just harking on that and they think they know who you are just because of that. At the end of the day, I take a lot of bullets and I don’t come out and shoot them back. What for? It’s not needed."

If Norman wanted to lash out at his former coaching staff for how they used him or grumble about how he was essentially benched for the end of the 2019 campaign, it would've been somewhat understandable. He certainly deserves from blame for his less-than-sterling tenure with Washington, but others were culpable as well.

To his credit, however, he chose to mostly focus on his new employer.

"It feels so fresh," Norman said about the vibe with the Bills.

He did find a way to close out that particular part of the call with one unique quote, though. 

"What we’re trying to bring here is something truly special," he said. "I’m just gonna sprinkle a little bit of my pixie dust on it."

Well, for the sake of Bills fans, let's hope that pixie dust is different than whatever he was sprinkling in D.C. these last few years. The recipe for that pixie dust should probably be thrown away, honestly.
