Where does this Cowboy's win Rank
 
Where do you rank this Thanksgiving day win against in comparison to past notable Redskins wins against the boy's?

I put this one pretty high as the intro of RG3 to Dallas as a Skin. I also think it can be a momentum shifting win that catapult us on a win streak to the playoffs.

Name your top win against the Cowboy's and why, plus where do you put this win...

Fun discussion before the Monday night match up.

For me it's up there with the Chris Cooley domination game and the Moss late game heroic game.

Doesn't mean anything in the grand scheme if we don't go to the playoffs. As of right now, it was huge in our efforts to get the to playoffs and to win our division. We still control much of our destiny, but we do need a little help. (starting with the Packers)

It's pretty high up there. I would have to say the only three I can rank above are the 1972 NFC Championship game (which is at the edges of my memory and a big reason I am a Redskin fan), the "We Want Dallas" 1983 Conference Championship which truly ushered in the Joe Gibbs era, and the 2005 Hall of Shame game.

Actually, I would rank it above the 2005 game slightly just b/c of the epic nature of the victory (First win on Thanksgiving in Dallas). Depending on the events of the future, it could move up to challenge the first two. If we end up in the playoffs and RGIII ends up having the career we hope, history may judge this as his "coming out" party as the 1983 was to Joe Gibbs.

Just another cowboy game win, give me another 1982 playoff beatdown, then it will rank as memorable win.

2nd to the 2005 14 - 13 win in Dallas.

It heralds the dawn of the dynasty. I think we fans will look back in 3-5 years and say "That's where it began".

1st win on Thanksgiving and a big time memorable performance by RG3, I'd say the win ranks right up there. The double dagger of Brunell to Moss in 2005 is still tops for me.

The Redskins have had some pretty solid wins against Dallas. But to me this was just a game we needed.

I would rank the win in this order:

1. 31-17 NFC Championship win over Dallas 1982
2. 26-3 NFC Championship win over Dallas 1972
3. 41-14 trashing of the Cowboys at RFK Stadium in 1986
4. 38-31 whooping over Dallas at Cowboys Stadium on 11-22-12
5. 30-28 to complete the first ever season sweep of the Cowboys in 1984

Monday night miracle, hands down, this might be number three for me.

Its up there for sure, but I can't put it over playoff wins.

#5 was great bc they were down 21-6 at halftime. How about the Army fatigues game, 31-10 win. Or the Troy Vincent game

This was a nice win but nothing can touch 1982. Winner goes to the SB, loser goes home. Back then the teams hated one another, not the case now.

Re: Where does this Cowboy's win Rank
 
The dominant NFC Championship wins over the Boys in '72 and '82 are definitely the tops. After those, I would put this Thanksgiving win ahead of the 2005 regular season sweep (Santana Moss miracle in Dallas; Cooley 3 TDs in blowout win during drive to the playoffs) for the following reason: This was a national coming out party for RG3. Those who hadn't seen him might have thought he was a lot of hype, but after that performance, the NFC East is officially on notice that the Redskins are relevant now, and will be for the next 10+ years with RG3's superior QB play.
