The Redskins-Cowboys rivalry has some one-sided history in the Jeffcoat family, but, on Sunday, the Dallas-dominated household will begin to be challenged.
After playing at linebacker and recording his first professional sack for the Redskins Saturday night, Jackson Jeffcoat will finish the season playing against the Cowboys, his father Jim Jeffcoat’s former team.
“I grew up on the other side, so I know how big [this game] is for them,” said Jackson. “Being over here, I know how big it is for us as well. It’s definitely a big game and it’s very exciting. I’m excited to be able to play with the Redskins and this rivalry.”
It’s been equally exciting for Jim to see his son compete in the NFL and watch a second generation of family compete in the NFC East.
“He’s getting the opportunity and he’s working to take advantage of it,” Jim said. “I thought if he got the opportunity that he would be successful.”
