Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Redskins vs Cowboys

Rival Team: Dallas Cowboys

The rivalry between the Redskins and Cowboys began before the Cowboys even entered the league when the Cowboys founder Clint Murchison bought the Redskins’ fight song to use as leverage to get George Preston Marshall’s approval for the expansion. The first meeting between these two rivals took place on October 9, 1960, when the Redskins defeated the Cowboys 26-14 for their only victory of the season. Dallas holds the all-time series lead 65-43-2, but Washington has gotten the better of the Cowboys in both of the teams’ playoff meetings.

Redskins vs Giants

Rival Team: New York Giants

The oldest rivalry in the NFC East began in 1932 when the then Boston Braves joined the NFL. The rivalry reached its height in the 1980s, during which the Redskins and Giants combined for 3 Super Bowl victories. The Giants lead the all-time series 97-65-4, but things are all knotted up at one game apiece when these two rivals meet in the playoffs.

Redskins vs Eagles

Rival Team: Philadelphia Eagles

The Redskins-Eagles rivalry can be traced back to 1934 when the then Boston Redskins defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 6-0. Despite moving to Washington only a few years later, the rivalry has remained strong over the years as both teams have played in the same division ever since. The Redskins hold an 82-73-6 lead in the all-time series and have also won the only postseason meeting between these two NFC East rivals.
