They're just happy to be there mentality along with Rg3 being a rookie doing better than anybody thought to begin the season + injuries give RG3 a pass to fail in the biggest game of his NFL career.
-"While Romo on the other hand has a truck load of pressure because he has to prove he can win a big game".
What a load of crap. Everybody is picking Romo and the Cowboys to lose. You wan't to talk about injuries, we're decimated by them.
I hope we beat the Redskins down, I hate their dumb fans and team.
My own sense is that most of the pressure is on the Cowboys.
Redkins have a rookie starting QB, they basically lost their best two defenders at the beginning of the season, they had to deal with a $36m cap penalty, their coach basically wrote off the season half way through, etc, etc.
With the Cowboys every year the playoffs are expected.
