Cowboys win; tie Washington atop NFC East

It was just three weeks ago that Beckham declared he expected the Giants to win out and make the playoffs - a proposition that seemed laughable after Beckham and Co. had dropped all but one of their first eight contests.

As folks were sitting down to seconds, or possibly third servings on Thanksgiving, the Dallas Cowboys were busy taking over first place in the NFC East. McCoy won his two previous starts at the home of the Cowboys, one for the 2009 Big 12 championship and the other his most recent National Football League victory with the Redskins in 2014. The Redskins have an easier remaining schedule, but the Cowboys are riding plenty of momentum, having won their last three games, and the season-ending injury to quarterback Alex Smith will be tough to rebound from.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper (19) runs in for a touchdown against the Washington Redskins during the second half of an NFL football game in Arlington, Texas, Thursday, Nov. 22, 2018.

At 6-4, the Redskins own a one-game lead over the 5-5 Cowboys.

On the 90-yarder, Cooper made the catch just outside the Dallas 30, spun out of the arms of Fabian Moreau and won the race to the pylon against former Alabama teammate Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, who tried to shove him out of bounds around the 5. It's been a long time since a Cowboys receiver could punish a cornerback that slips in coverage quite like Cooper did to match the Redskins go-ahead touchdown. This time, he opted to put teammate Dak Prescott in the kettle after his impressive touchdown run on Thanksgiving.

Cooper had the most yards receiving for the Cowboys on Thanksgiving, along with the longest catch of his career and Dak Prescott's longest completion in his three seasons. The team gave him the game ball.

Call Jerry Jones insane, but the Cowboys owner and general manager believes those two big plays are connected. "So we are all just playing together".

The upcoming Thursday night home game against the steamrolling New Orleans Saints will be key. The complexion of this game changed entirely when Prescott refused to go down running to his left, eluding two tackles behind the line to find a running lane.
