Open Thread: Redskins vs Cowboys on Monday Night Football

Tonight it’s the 15th meeting between the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football — each team has won 7 coming into this one. The 1-1 Cowboys enjoy their first home game of the 2011 campaign, but they’re banged up and the defense, while led by coordinator Rex Ryan, is ferocious but questionable. The Boys D does lead the league in sacks, but has also given up a lot of points in its first two games. QB Tony Romo is nursing a fractured rib, WR Miles Austin is out.

The Skins are 2-0 but this is their first road game of the season. Are they for real? Are either of these teams for real?* We’ll find out tonight.

I’ve had some good Texas barbecue and I’m ready for some football.

*I’ll believe the Cowboys are for real when they’re deep in the playoffs.
