Fans of the National Football League get treated to the 107th match-up between the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins as the Sunday portion of the NFL Week 6 action comes to a close in prime time. Kickoff for this classic NFC East rivalry battle is slated for 8:30 PM ET on October 13, 2013, from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. We like the hometown ‘Boys here!
High octane Cowboys offense is firing on all cylinders
Sitting second in NFL scoring, only to the off-the-charts Denver Broncos (46 PPG), the Dallas Cowboys have posted an average of 30.4 points per game through the first five weeks of the 2013 NFL schedule. Unfortunately, all that scoring has only produced is a 2-3 record – that’s still good for a tie-breaker lead over the Eagles in the very strange NFC East standings. Dallas has wins over the Giants and Rams and loses to the Chiefs, Chargers, and Broncos. The ‘Boys they have posted a 2-1 record in the house that Jerry built – expect a shoot out in this contest.
Redskins defense is largely responsible for disappointing 1-3 start
Simply put – Washington has failed to live up to their preseason hype through the first four games of the 2013 NFL season. After being outscored 98-67 in loses to the Eagles, Packers, and Lions, the Redskins went on the road in Week 4 and bagged their first win of the season as they defeated the Oakland Raiders by a 24-14 final count. The Raiders had QB Matt Flynn at the helm in that contest – he’s since been cut. The win masked the fact that the Skins defense is 28th against the pass in the NFL meaning Romo to Bryant will be heard a lot today.
