>>Streaking Cowboys Host Rival Redskins On "MNF"

(Arlington, TX) -- NFC East rivals meet on "Monday Night Football" in "Big D" as the streaking Dallas Cowboys host the Washington Redskins at AT&T Stadium. It's a matchup of first place against last place. The Cowboys are riding a six-game winning streak that has them atop the division at 6-and-1. Since throwing three picks in a season-opening loss at San Francisco, Dallas quarterback Tony Romo has 13 TD passes and just three interceptions in the last six games. The Cowboys' DeMarco Murray leads the NFL in rushing with 913 yards this season, nearly 150 more than his closest competitor. The Redskins snapped a four-game losing streak with a last-second, 19-17 win over the Titans last weekend. Washington is still in the NFC East basement at 2-and-5. Quarterback Colt McCoy will get the start this week after replacing an ineffective Kirk Cousins and leading the game-winning drive against Tennessee.
