Dallas week began at about 4:11 p.m. Sunday, as the chants echoed around FedEx Field.
“We want Dallas,” fans repeated as the Washington Redskins disposed of the Philadelphia Eagles 31-6. It was the biggest win of the season, at least by margin, and one that kept the season alive.
But players didn’t have much time to enjoy it, maybe 12 or 14 hours, before turning their attention to the Cowboys. That’s a product of the schedule and a trip to Dallas for a Thanksgiving Day rivalry game that will test the Redskins with a short turnaround.
