Cooper, Cowboys join Redskins atop NFC East with 31-23 win

Amari Cooper: Real reason Dallas Cowboys signed National Football League star from Raiders Dak Prescott: Cowboys star key to Jerry Jones head coach decision The two clash in Week 12 in a blockbuster Thanksgiving clash with the victor set to take momentum into the final weeks of the National Football League season.

They traded for receiver Amari Cooper the day after Washington won the rivals' first meeting, and just four weeks later the Cowboys' offense had the edge it was seeking.

The Cowboys are pushing for their third-straight win and one that would leave them with the same record as this Redskins team atop the NFC East heading into the final stretch of the season. Peterson started the game, rushing 12 times for 35 yards, but the FOX broadcast did not address his comments, the possible implications of them or the fact that they drew national attention in the hours leading up to the game. But Elliott's storming fourth quarter took Dallas in front with Dak Prescott also getting a touchdown.

Cooper had the most yards receiving for the Cowboys on Thanksgiving, along with the longest catch of his career and Prescott's longest completion in his three seasons. Colt McCoy is the man now for the Redskins and he looked decent last week, but the Houston Texans weren't preparing all week for him to be in the game.

The Cowboys kept their annual Thanksgiving game entertaining enough to cover the end of dinner and most of dessert, coming out at 6-5 and learning a lot about the makeup of this team.

Elliott missed the Thanksgiving game past year on his six-game suspension over domestic violence allegations. "And I love it", Elliott said.

Cowboys rookie receiver Michael Gallup had two catches for 19 yards less than a week after his brother died by suicide. "We just said to hell with it". The team gave him the game ball. The NFL Odds for the game have the Cowboys favored to pick up the win here.
