Game Preview: Dallas Cowboys at Washington Redskins

A couple notes here. Jon Kitna did not make the trip to D.C. with an illness, so Stephen McGee is Romo's backup. Tony Romo will be the holder for field goals today (insert choke joke here).

Prediction: It's hard to pick the Redskins in this game given the injuries to the OLine. Even if the Redskins keep the game close defensively, the inability of our offense to convert 3rd and longs, which we'll likely be in a lot, will take it's toll on our defense. Cowboys 27, Redskins 9. (please prove me wrong Shanny, PLEASE).
