Jerry Jones: Dallas Cowboys have more to lose than Washington Redskins

See also

Jerry Jones has done a lot of talking this season, whether he is defending his defensive coordinator or calling Dallas Cowboys' losses a "show." According to ESPN on Dec. 20, Jones has talked about this weekend's game with the Washington Redskins and he made some good points this time.

Jones said that his Dallas Cowboys have a lot more to lose this weekend than the Washington Redskins. This seems like a no-brainer when looking at the standings. If Dallas wins their final two games of the season, they make the playoffs for the first time in Jason Garrett's tenure as head coach.

If Dallas loses and the Philadelphia Eagles win, Dallas is eliminated from playoff competition with one game left to play in the season. Dallas does have a chance to lose and still have a chance, but they need the Eagles to lose to the Chicago Bears for that to happen.

Meanwhile, the Washington Redskins will probably fire head coach Mike Shanahan after the season ends and they have already benched their starting quarterback Robert Griffin III for the rest of the season. However, despite all this, there is one thing to keep in mind.

Jerry Jones remembered the first win the Dallas Cowboys got after he bought the team. It was against the Washington Redskins. That year, Dallas only won one game while the Redskins finished the season 10-6. In that season, if Washington had beaten Dallas, they would have made the playoffs. Since Dallas upset them, the Redskins stayed home.

This year, the roles could be changed. With Washington playing out the season, they have one thing left to play for - spoiling the season for their biggest rival.
