Cowboys vs. Redskins: Five winners, five losers, and everything in between as Dallas takes first place

It’s going to be a fun week as the Cowboys take the lead in the NFC East. For the third time in a row the Dallas Cowboys won a football game, the latest one on Thanksgiving. It was just about everything we could have wanted. The Cowboys now sit atop the NFC East and control their own destiny which is something that seemed impossible less than 20 days ago after the Monday Night Football loss to the Tennessee Titans. Time, and winning, heals all wounds. What did we take away from the big Turkey Day win, though? What is important that we learned? Welcome to BTB’s five winners, five losers,...

Jay Gruden:

Jay Gruden: "Trent Williams has bruised ribs, X-rays negative."

Jay Gruden spoke to reporters in a conference call the day after a huge Thanksgiving day loss to the Cowboys. Trent Williams left the stadium in an ambulance last night. He had X-rays done, but they came back negative. Matt Ioannidis left the game with a calf bruise and he's day to day. He also said Morgan Moses is playing on a bad Achilles. Adrian Peterson aggravated his shoulder, and Quinton Dunbar's nerve issue in his leg got worse as the game went on. The Redskins will take the weekend off and then return Monday to prepare for next week's MNF game against the Eagles. Trent...

ARLINGTON -- A trade that looked iffy after 3 1/2 games became flat-out brilliant after four. I'm not sure such a thing should be physically possible, but then, three weeks ago, who really thought the Cowboys motoring into first place and establishing themselves as the team to beat in the NFC East was going to be the story on Thanksgiving Day?After posturing for a more modest victory over Washington Thursday afternoon -- the Cowboys led 10-7 at halftime -- Dallas let Amari Cooper turn on the jets and put on a show in the second half for a 31-23 victory that left both the Cowboys and Redskins...

ARLINGTON -- When the Washington Redskins signed Josh Norman to a $75 million deal they didn't envision the opposing team's wide receiver to light them up on any given Sunday.

Cowboys stuff the Redskins 31-23 on Thanksgiving Day

That did not go as planned The Redskins streak of forcing a turnover in 14 straight games came to an end today, and so did the Redskins time at the top of the NFC East. Washington was in the game until the 3rd quarter when Amari Cooper and some bad tackling gave the Cowboys a big lead. Colt McCoy threw three interceptions today, but tried to lead the team to a comeback. That didn’t happen, and the Redskins fall to 6-5 and 2nd place in the division.
