Washington Redskins to take on Dallas Cowboys at FedEx Field

Washington Redskins vs Dallas CowboysThe rivalry between the Washington Redskins – the team that the nations’ capital roots for – and America’s team, the Dallas Cowboys, continues December 28th, 2014 at FedEx Field.  This long and hard-fought rivalry between the Redskins and the Cowboys is widely considered one of the best in the National Football League as evidenced by both the ESPN television network and Sports Illustrated magazine.

Since 1960 when the Cowboys entered the league as an expansion franchise, both teams have seen unprecedented success with 28 division titles and eight Super Bowl appearances between them. The result has been one of the most exciting divisions and rivalries in football. It has also resulted in two teams that are among the most valuable in the NFL.

This year’s game – just a few days after Christmas and the fourth on the Redskins’ December schedule – sees the Cowboys with Tony Romo and DeMarco Murray in a solid season.  The Redskins continue to work their way through a difficult season. Still, the Redskins’ QB, RG3, and the legitimate deep threat, DeSean Jackson will make for some very formidable offensive forays into the Cowboys’ red zone.

Regardless of the final outcome of the game, football fans will always have a memorable time at this game. FedEx Field in Washington D.C. is one of the premier locations in the league and the tradition that surrounds the rivalry is legendary. Senators, governors and even presidents – come on down, LBJ – have made some hefty wagers on the outcome.  Tailgating at this match up should eclipse all other games as committed fans show up to support their teams.  As usual FedEx Field lots are set to open 4 hours before game time.

Washington Redskins to take on St. Louis Rams at FedEx Field

Washington Redskins vs Rams FootballOn December 7th – Pearl Harbor Day – the St. Louis Rams are scheduled to roll into D.C. to play our beloved Washington Redskins at FedExField. While the fireworks at the game will not rival those on that fateful day back in 1941, they will still be significant for the fans watching from both sides of the field.

This year’s matchup looks to be especially exciting as RG3 is anticipated to be back in the mix after his season debut against the Minnesota Vikings in early November. Although the Redskins lost that game in a fourth quarter squeaker, Redskins fans are counting on Mr. Griffin to provide some much needed firepower to the Skins’ offense in this annual classic.

The Rams and their fans, on the other hand, can look forward to a little revenge to make up for their somewhat disappointing season so far. Austin Davis still has a lot to prove but he has engineered a few spectacular TD drives even though he has failed to deliver consistently. This weekend will be his chance to shine and gain credibility.

Regardless of the pairings and the final outcome, all of the NFL fans at FedExField will have a memorable day. There is simply nothing like the pre-game excitement and tailgating revelry at a football matchup of this caliber.  Tailgaters take full advantage of the 4-hour pre-game opening time for FedExField lots.  Alexandria hotelIf either of these teams are your favorites – and even if they aren’t – consider a jaunt to the nation’s capital for a little rest and relaxation before, during and after the game.
