Umm Mike Jenkins pushed Garcon and Moss went over and hit him...They still are hasty to one another.

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.
That 1983 championship game is when i became a Redskin fan!!

Re: Where does this Cowboy's win Rank

Nothing can top the playoff victories,cmon man,its the playoffs!.For me,this was a great win,but the Moss game still tops it for the sheer joy I felt at end of game.
The skins have found so many ways to lose games at the end that I cant even enjoy a game anymore,I keep waiting for them to screw it up.So when Dallas started their comeback Thursday it was more sheer relief that we won then joy.On the other hand,the Moss game I thought we had no chance of winning,so when we pulled that out of our ass at the end I went around the house screaming and waking everyone up in the house to tell them what just happened

Re: Where does this Cowboy's win Rank

I was at the 1982 NFC Championship game in RFK Stadium. That was the most amazing atmosphere I could possibly imagine! That has to be our greatest win ever against Dallas.

This win, our first on Thanksgiving Day, has to rank very high. Maybe even in the Top 5.

1. 1982 Championship game.
2. Monday Night Miracle.
3. Brunell throws two late bombs to Santana Moss for the win.
4. Thanksgiving Day win?

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
^this, if #1 isn't your #1 it means you weren't around for it, so go look at a NFL Films season retrospective DVD off ebay and learn you some Skins History.

It's okay if you weren't around for it, that's not your fault. Although you can give your parents some grief if you want

Re: Where does this Cowboy's win Rank

It has to be a special win being on Thanksgiving. Probably the one I went the most nuts over the win was the blocked fg and Sean Taylor recovering and we kick a fg the next play. Any cowboys win is great. It was tough the norv years. He hardly could beat them.

Re: Where does this Cowboy's win Rank

I was around 18 in the 80's for those big wins but I just don't remember them. First would have to be the Monday night Moss/Brunell game because so many people had gone to bed to get up Tuesday to learn Dallas lost the game. Also it was a game I where I was wondering why I was still up watching. This was probably second because it was in Dallas, RGIII first national game, and it was on Thanks Giving.

I was 11 years old in 1982 so I was around for it. I was also around for the 1972 NFC championship but I was just an infant.
