For Redskins fans, there is nothing quite as sweet as a Redskins victory in Dallas.
So today, as we think about what we are thankful for, we cannot forget what a big win in Dallas it was 2 years ago today.
With the Cowboys coming into the game 5-5, they were gunning for the win. But the Redskins had something else in-store and surprised the world with their rookie quarterback and a 38-31 victory on Thanksgiving Day.
Happy #ThrowbackThursday, Redskins Nation!
And Happy Thanksgiving! Read More
