The NFL schedule 2013 live stream and TV games will include an NFC rivalry going down on Sunday Night Football, with the division lead still up for grabs less than halfway through the season. It will be the Dallas Cowboys hosting the Washington Redskins, with both teams looking for that important division win. In particular, the Redskins are still trying to turn their dismal start around and get more wins on the boards. Tonight's Redskins vs. Cowboys NFL game live streaming and TV coverage will be provided courtesy of NBC.
According to the Washington Post on Oct. 11, star Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has stated he believes he is "poised for a breakout" game. He'll have a chance to get that breakout against one of the biggest rivals of the team, the Dallas Cowboys, in Texas on Sunday night. RG3 told the media with regards to his team's current situation and tonight's matchup:
“We have to make sure we go out and not just rely on last year. But we have to build a story for this year, and it starts with us being 1-3 right now and trying to get to 2-3 against the Cowboys.”
It's been noted that an Eagles loss today will make tonight's game important as the winner takes the division lead. At this point in the early season, none of the teams in the NFC East have been all that impressive, but things could turn around, if RG3's prediction comes right.
Robert Griffin III has been said to have some mobility issues since returning from his knee injury, surgery and rehab, but leads the team with 1,202 yards passing and six touchdowns, so far. Running back Alfred Morris has racked up nearly 300 yards on the ground with two touchdowns, and the Redskins are eighth in the league in total offensive yards per game.
That's two spots ahead of the Cowboys who have 377.2 per game so far. Dallas ranks 20th in terms of rushing yards per game even though DeMarco Murray currently is fifth in the overall rushing yards leaders. In terms of passing yards, Dallas ranks 7th in the league, while Washington is right behind them at 8th. This could be a heated shootout between two star quarterbacks for NBC's Sunday Night Football in Dallas.
When it comes to defense, neither team is among the league leaders here and that could be where they get exposed. Cowboys player Sean Lee is tied for second in terms of tackles with 50, but Dallas ranks fifth to last in terms of the yards they allow per game. Washington ranks dead last in the category with 440.5 yards allowed per game. Tonight's game could be a high-scoring affair, if both quarterbacks are on fire. Washington is entering the game after having a bye week to rest, while Dallas is coming off the high-scoring back-and-forth game they lost to Peyton Manning and the Broncos last week.
Odds makers are giving the edge to Dallas tonight, but only slightly. Most books have the Cowboys favored to win by just 5 1/2 points, while the over/under is set at about 53 1/2 points for the game by various sports books. Weather reports indicate a 40% chance for a shower or storms, and a kickoff temperature of 78 degrees. Keep in mind that the expensive Cowboys Stadium has a roof just in case it rains.
