The Legendary Matchup

I am back, and I am currently riding a high as the Washington Redskins are cruising over the Dallas Cowboys, 28-0 at the half. With the playoff hunt and a potential sweep against Dallas on the line, the Redskins seem to have found the motivation they need. Being a loyal fan of the Washington Redskins has never been easy, but it certainly pays off from time to time.

UPDATE 9:20 PM: Great game, with the Redskins holding their 28-point lead in a 35-7 win. There is a tough road ahead though. Even with a win versus the New York Giants and at the Philadelphia Eagles, the Redskins could still miss the playoffs. Next week, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Atlanta Falcons are playing each other. For the Redskins to get into the playoffs, a win by Tampa Bay will have a bigger impact for the Redskins. If the Falcons win, the Redskins will need Tampa Bay to lose again, this time to the awful New Orleans Saints. And even then, the Redskins need to help themselves. Should be interesting to watch.
