NFL: Dallas Cowboys at Washington Redskins Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The 2018 Thanksgiving football schedule continues with an afternoon NFC East game featuring the Dallas Cowboys (5-5) and Washington Redskins (6-4).

There’s been some question as to which side Philadelphia Eagles fans should be rooting for. Here’s my explanation from earlier this week:

If the Cowboys beat a Colt McCoy-led Washington team on Thanksgiving, both of those squads will be 6-5. The Eagles could then beat the Giants on Sunday to move to 5-6. If the Cowboys lose to the Saints in Week 13, they’ll drop to 6-6. An Eagles win over Washington on Monday Night Football, meanwhile, would also put Philly at 6-6 while dropping Washington to the same record. The Eagles and Cowboys would then be playing for first in the division in Week 14.

So, I suppose the move is to root against Washington.

With that said, Eagles fans will hardly be shedding tears if the Cowboys lose. Maybe Washington flukes their way into a win today before losing out down the stretch with McCoy at the helm. That’d be really nice.
