Redskins: A Ticket to the Playoffs
"The Redskins have been infrequent playoff participants for the past two decades so playing in January would truly be a holiday gift to remember. Not since 2007 have they played past the end of the regular season and, every year, their hopes have been dashed before Thanksgiving. The team, and especially its fans, would enjoy a string of meaningful Sundays leading up to clinching an invitation to get on the road to the Super Bowl. And, as we have seen in recent years, once you're in it anyone can win it."
Stocking stuffer: Beating the Cowboys
"Redskins v. Cowboys is without question one of the most storied rivalries in NFL history. In the 70's, 80's and into the 90's you could argue it was the best.
True rivalries usually require both teams to be very good, which has not always been the case the last several years on both sides. Nonetheless, there is always animosity in this match up, which usually leads to dramatic and entertaining games. Thanksgiving Day this year was no exception and next Sunday's game, with a lot at stake for both teams, will be one of the most anticipated games in the last 20 years of the rivalry." -Joe Yasharoff, CSN
