Will It Be Redskins-Cowboys On Thanksgiving?

Posted Feb 16, 2016

Sports Business Journal’s John Ourand is reporting the league is leaning towards scheduling a Redskins-Cowboys matchup for Thanksgiving 2016 on FOX.

Sports Business Journal’s John Ourand is reporting the league is leaning towards scheduling a Redskins-Cowboys matchup for Thanksgiving 2016 on FOX.

The Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys have matched up seven times on Thanksgiving Day in their historic rivalry dating back to the 1960s.

Could the 2016 season bring an eighth Thanksgiving Day matchup?

Sports Business Journal’s John Ourand is reporting that the league is “likely” to schedule Redskins-Cowboys as one of its two Thanksgiving Day games in 2016. Though the NFL is yet to confirm the report – regular-season schedules aren’t usually finalized and released until mid-April – Ourand is told it would be telecast on FOX.

The location of the game is not included in Ourand’s report, but the Cowboys have traditionally been the home team on Thanksgiving in years past. The other Thanksgiving Day game this season will likely feature the Detroit Lions taking on the Minnesota Vikings, Ourand reports.

If this Redskins-Cowboys matchup does come to fruition, Washington will look to continue to improve upon its not-so-impressive history on Thanksgiving Day.

The Redskins are 2-6 all-time in games played on Thanksgiving. They have played the Cowboys in seven of those matchups, winning just once. But that one win did come in their most recent matchup: a 38-31 victory on Nov. 22, 2012, at AT&T Stadium.

Here is the Redskins’ all-time record on Thanksgiving Day:

  • Nov. 28, 1968: at Dallas (29-20 loss)
  • Nov. 22, 1973: at Detroit (20-0 win)
  • Nov. 28, 1974: at Dallas (24-23 loss)
  • Nov. 23, 1978: at Dallas (37-10 loss)
  • Nov. 22, 1990: at Dallas (27-17 loss)
  • Nov. 28, 1996: at Dallas (21-10 loss)
  • Nov. 28, 2002: at Dallas (27-20 loss)
  • Nov. 22, 2012: as Dallas (38-31 win)
