Cowboys, Redskins renew rivalry in D.C.

Why to watch
This is still a rivalry game, for what that's worth. There is a Rex Grossman turnover drinking game out there somewhere. His meltdown in Dallas earlier this year began a slide that led to John Beck starting, which led back to Grossman. Dallas is in position to push the Giants in the NFC East.
