Landover, Md. – It was a start to the 2016 season to forget for the Redskins, but they have a chance to not only get their first win of the season, but also against their division rival Dallas Cowboys.

The 1:00 game will feature two teams who lost in contrasting ways. The Cowboys come off of a heartbreaking 20-19 loss to the New York Giants, while the ‘Skins were beat in all facets on Monday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Kirk Cousins threw for 329 yards in the loss, but no touchdowns and two interceptions. On top of that, the rushing game was non-existent, only netting 55 total yards between the running back committee. In the post game press conference, head coach Jay Gruden said “we have to get our running game going, it’s something that we’ll take a look at, but we have to get better.”

The Redskins could use the services of Alfred Morris, who departed this offseason and is now going to be running against them in a Dallas jersey.
