Sunday night’s game between the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys is the biggest game in years in the Redskins-Cowboys rivalry. The winner takes the NFC East. Dallas will go home with a loss, while the Skins can still make the playoffs if the Bears and Vikings both lose.

The once great rivalry has become stale in recent years, but players like Diron Talbert, Dexter Manley, Roger Staubach and Harvey Martin stoked the flames in the ’70s and ’80s. Redskins coach George Allen started it all by making the Cowboys a bitter rival.
