NFL Week 11: Dallas Cowboys Vs. Washington Redskins

Two teams headed in opposite directions square off in Week 11, as the Dallas Cowboys head on the road to take on the Washington Redskins in another NFC East showdown.

Two teams headed in opposite directions square off in Week 11, as the Dallas Cowboys head on the road to take on the Washington Redskins in another NFC East showdown. 

Jason Garrett's Cowboys will be looking for their third straight win. After being embarrassed in Philadelphia, the Cowboys have responded with two consecutive wins, beating the Seahawks during Week 9 before demolishing the Bills in Week 10. Dallas' Week 10 win over the Bills was easily the best showing the Cowboys have had this season, dominating on both sides of the ball in the 44-7 win. 

The Redskins, meanwhile, are reeling. After starting out 3-1, the Redskins have lost five in a row, including a Week 10 loss to the lowly Miami Dolphins. Washington's struggles can be chalked up in large part due to their awful quarterback situation, as John Beck and Rex Grossman have taken turns showcasing their ineptitude. The Redskins will once again be without Santana Moss, who has not played since Week 7 when he injured his hand. Washington will also be without wide receiver Leonard Hankerson, further depleting Washington's aerial attack. 

Dallas is expected to have Felix Jones active for Sunday, though, DeMarco Murray will remain the team's primary runner after emerging as a playmaking back, averaging over 150 yards per game on the ground the last four games. 

Even if the Redskins don't figure into the playoff picture, this game does have ramifications as the Cowboys are currently 1-1 within the division -- the same divisional record as the Giants, who take on the Eagles this weekend. 

Kickoff is scheduled for 12 p.m. CT from FedEx field. Televised coverage can be found on FOX.
