Even though the Redskins are 4-9 and the Cowboys have lost two in a row to slip to 8-5, their Dec. 27 meeting remains a national TV game.

The NFL just announced that the NFC East showdown will remain the nationally televised night game a week from Sunday.


So after playing 11 straight games at 1 PM Eastern beginning in Week 2, the Redskins will finish with a pair of 4 PM starts (last Sunday at Oakland and the Jan. 3 finale at San Diego) and a pair of night games (the visits by the New York Giants a week from tonight and by the Cowboys).

The Redskins will be out to avenge their late 7-6 loss at Dallas on Nov. 22. The teams split the series the past three seasons.
