As you kick back in your recliner and watch how the other games are unraveling this afternoon, especially the NFC East, now is the perfect time to start Cowboys Week.

Yeah those guys.

While today marks the climax of the Bye Week, there is never time away from the Redskins-Cowboys rivalry.

Dating back to 1960, the two division rivals have partaken in some epic battles—some of which will live on in eternity in football lore.

Winning the first matchup 26-14, the teams have met 106 times and with Robert Griffin III being the new sheriff in town and even being supported by the opposition (that would never, ever happen here), this rivalry is better than ever.

Anyway, here are some video highlights of some of the best moments because I know the last thing you want to do on your Sunday Funday is read any more of what this writer has to say:

Who better to start with than the great Darrell Green chasing down an overly confident Tony Dorsett in 1983 (starts at the 0:13 mark):

These pass-heavy offenses might be the cool thing these days, but nothing beats watching “The Diesel” overpowering the Cowboys. In the 1983 NFC Championship Game, he tore apart the Cowboys for 140 yards and two touchdowns.

Some might call him Santana Moss, but others simply refer to him as the Cowboy Killer. It all started in 2005 with his two-touchdown performance on Monday Night Football:

And of course most recently–the Thanksgiving Day, second quarter explosion followed up by Alfred Morris‘ 200-yard, three touchdown performance to sew up the first NFC East title since 1999:

    I think the blocked Vanderjact FG is noteworthy. Vandy had the best FG % in NFL history so Washington looked doomed facing a 35yd FG attempt with 9 sec remaining. Newly acquired former Eagle CB Troy Vincent did us a major solid

    Man I remember that 05 game like it was yesterday, Santana Moss was my hero for along time after that and still to this day I appreciate him and what he contributes to the team, and I have to mention Mark Brunnell sorry if misspelled I mean he threw those two beautiful passes to win that game as well it was a thing of beauty. And the cowboys was treating it like a homecoming game too made it that much sweeter. I always tell everyone any team on any given Sunday or Monday or Thursday or Saturday can beat another team especially if the team in question is under estimated or over looked. That’s my two cents thanks for reading god bless and HTTR!!!!!!!
