Jerry Jones jokes he'd like to limit Snyder's dancing

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has 88 wins against divisional opponents since buying the Cowboys back in 1989. In that time the division has seen stretches of dominance from just about every team.

So, heading into a Thanksgiving afternoon showdown against the Redskins, Jones was asked which team he enjoys beating the most.

"Well I'll tell you this, nothing makes it any sweeter than to cut (Redskins owner) Dan Synder's dancing down," Jones said with a laugh on Good Morning Football on Wednesday in an appearance to promote Salvation Army's Red Kettle holiday campaign. "I understand he's doing a little boogie-ing up in that box.

"But I'll tell you this, that Philadelphia Eagle game is a big game too. And there's nothing like going to New York, New York and getting some of that. They've handed us a few disappointing moments too, but that NFC East -- we're so proud to be a part of it."

For those unaware, Snyder was captured getting down to House Of Pain's Jump Around during Sunday night's win over the Green Bay Packers.

Good natured ribbing aside, this is just another example of why it's good for business when the Cowboys are winning. Jones has his detractors for sure, but he's also one of the last remaining unfiltered voices of the NFL -- a relic of the sport's wild west days that some hope are on their way back.

Having his Cowboys (9-1) preparing for a holiday matchup against the surging Redskins (6-3-1) with so much at stake in possibly the best division in football doesn't hurt business, either.
