Its their Super Bowl when they play us, regardless of record.
Having grown up in Skins territory I can say w/o hesitation that that whole Beltway area still thinks this is a huge deal. They are obsessed with the Cowboys. They think about beating the Boys 365 days a year. Nothing is more important to them.
Those DC fans would love nothing more than to beat us in Dallas on Thanksgiving.
And the very thought of the whole DC metropolitan area being totally depressed at 8 pm Thanksgiving night after losing to the Cowboys just warms the cockles of my heart and puts a smile on my face!
