Ask any Redskins fan about the final game at RFK Stadium and nearly all of them will tell you they beat the Dallas Cowboys.
The favor will not be returned in Texas Stadium's final contest. Instead of having the rival Redskins face Dallas one last time in the regular season finale ... the Cowboys will host the Baltimore Ravens.
Wrong Beltway team!
Now, the Baltimore Ravens have never ... I mean NEVER ... played at Texas Stadium. In fact, the two franchises have met just twice with both games played in B'more. Having them close out the iconic stadium instead of the Redskins is sad, really.
Tom Landry's last coaching victory was over the Redskins. Roger Staubach's last regular-season victory was over the Redskins. Vince Lombardi finished his first and only season as head coach of the Redskins losing to the Cowboys. Troy Aikman's final regular-season game was against the Redskins that 2000 season. Emmitt Smith's final game as a Cowboy was against the Redskins (2002), as was Dave Campo's last as a head coach.
The Cowboys' only regular-season victory in 1989 came at the expense of the Redskins. The Redskins' only loss during the strike-shortened 1982 season was to the Cowboys. Washington's first loss during the 1991 season, having started out 11-0, was to the Cowboys, and some argue had they beaten the Cowboys they would have played all their starters in the final game of the season they lost by two at Philadelphia to have a chance at finishing 16-0. And, well, Jimmy Johnson's last regular-season coaching appearance at Texas Stadium came against . . . yep, the Redskins.
I might also add that Joe Gibbs final regular season game came against the Cowboys. Who knows? Maybe they'll meet up in the postseason.
